Chester’s Opens Mississippi Site

Chester’s International opened its newest chicken foodservice site in Florence, Miss., this week at Southern Oil convenience store on East Main Street.

The new store is a franchised location operated by Mitchell Morris, owner and operator of the Southern Oil convenience store in historic Florence. With the Chester’s addition, the c-store chain will serve lunch and dinner through Chester’s signature menu options, including Chester’s fried chicken, potato wedges and biscuits. The store will feature seating for more than 20 guests, with dine-in and carryout options as well as a drive-thru.

“We are excited to be working with a successful operator like Mitchell Morris,” said Ted Giles, CEO of Chester’s International. “We are also excited about bringing our great tasting fresh fried chicken to this area.”

Chester’s International is an emerging leader in quick serve restaurant concepts, with more than 1,500 Chester Fried licensed and Chester’s franchised locations, many of them in convenience stores.
