A Brief History of the Chicken

We were two guys, fresh out of college wanting to dodge the real world. With a name written on a bar napkin, we opened our first, very humble location on Morrison Drive. Since the beginning we have always focused on quality food in a fun atmosphere. Somehow we managed over the first few years, even though we really weren't sure what we were doing!  Then, along came David Miller, who partnered up with us shortly after we opened our second location on James Island.  Finally, with the much needed guidance and knowledge that David brought, we were on the right track.

We want to thank all the great people who work with us, the employees who have since left the Kickin' Chicken family and of course,our customers, because face it, without them, none of this is possible.  We continue to do our best to make sure every experience is an excellent one. As different as three people can be, we all have the same goal, to take care of our customers, our employees, and to positively impact our community.

Thanks for your support.
We hope to see you back soon.

Chip, Bobby & David


We understand that with out you, our customers, we wouldn't be as successful as we are now. Because of that, we enjoy in giving back to the community.  We help as many organizations as we can through various ways of giving.  The founders are involved in projects that will hopefully make a  difference in the lives of those who are in need.

The James Island Outreach

This support extends to The James Island Outreach, a food & financial assistance outreach that provides counseling for those who are in crisis & extreme financial need.  Additionally, it provides support for inner-city programs that uses sports as a mechanism for personal responsibility.  The common belief of the founders in the programs it supports is to assist financially but additionally takea  personal role insuring that lives may somehow be enriched as a result of our blessings.

Camp Happy Days

Camp Happy Days is a SC state wide organization based out of Charleston that helps those children with cancer.  With various programs for their kids throughout the year, their main program is Camp itself.  One week every July where the sick kids and their siblings get to be a "real kid" again.  With over 170 in attendance annually, Kickin Chicken raises money, donations, supplies and support to send these amazing kids to a camp for one week where they don't have to worry about being sick, being looked at funny, and for their families, a week of rest, knowing their children are taken care of and having the time of their lives.  http://www.camphappydays.com/

Charleston & Summerville Miracle League

Charleston & Summerville Miracle League has been a part of Kickin Chicken for the past several  years.  We have been involved with this wonderful organization.  What Miracle League does is provide the opportunity for every child, no matter what their disability, the opportunity to play the great American game of baseball.  We are actively involved in both local groups, The Charleston Miracle League & The Summerville Miracle League.  It is great to see those smiling faces participate in an activity they normally wouldn't be able to.  We are proud to be associated with such a worthy cause and each and every one of those children have a special place in our hearts.  http://www.miracleleague.com/
