Do you dream of owning a Nashville Hot Chicken restaurant? 
Want a big juicy bite of Crimson Coward?

Crimson Coward is excited to offer franchise opportunities in Southern California to qualified investors. If you are devoted to excellence in mouth watering deliciousness and exceeding customer expectations, we want to hear from you.

Why Crimson Coward?

Google Trends shows the Nashville Hot Chicken boom increasing into the mainstream. Why? We think it’s because spicy fried chicken is fun, delicious and satisfying.  The Crimson demographic is overwhelming YOUNG as can be seen below.

In our experience, young people especially enjoy the social experience of daring each other to try our hottest level of Burn, Baby Burn.
We have thrived substantially during the coronavirus crisis because comfort food is a reassuring meal during stressful times and our legion of fans keeps growing every week from Santa Clarita to San Diego. Below is a Google “heat map” showing where people are located when they search for directions to our restaurant.

The Crimson Coward team has the leadership, experience and drive to become the top brand of
Nashville Hot Chicken in California (and beyond).

We leverage cutting edge technology beyond the kitchen. Our marketing partner uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to maximize our  multi-channel online presence. In today’s social media driven online world, we actively engage our audience of over 70k Instagram followers and over 123k TikTok followers.

Our website is optimized for pickup orders and over 10,000 customers have joined our exciting loyalty program.

This was our first time coming and the service was exceptional. We had a very large order and Dana and Mona were patient and got everything down perfectly to the T. They took the necessary measures due to the circumstances. Everything was clean.
