Southern Fried Chicken was founded in the 1970s by Arthur Withers. In 1973, Withers travelled to America to work for Barbeque King; there, he improved his knowledge of the commercial fast food business. Withers made a visit to Greenville, South Carolina, where he learned about fried chicken.
In 1983, Southern Fried Chicken moved into the offices they are still in today, complete with its own manufacturing department.
In 1999, Southern Fried Chicken met an Alendvic Company and started to expand the love of fried chicken in Russia, starting in the Perm region. The Perm region now has over 25 outlets.
The company is currently headed by his son, Andrew Withers.
Southern Fried Chicken is currently sold in over 700 locations, across over 79 countries worldwide. Restaurants have schemed interior designs and have been applied to create clean, spacious and comfortable restaurants. Designs are suited to all types of premises and existing architecture.
