You will be forgiven if you go to Cowboy Chicken’s Fresno opening Wednesday and mistake the year for 1981.
Fig Garden Village’s newest restaurant announced in a press release that in celebration of its latest store opening, it will sell its signature rotisserie chicken at the same prices as when the Dallas-based franchise first premiered in 1981.
For those with the Cowboy Chicken app, a half chicken with potatoes, beans and a roll will be sold at $3.29. For dessert, a peach cobbler will go for $1.29.
The first 100 people through the door on opening day will also get a cup that gives them free tea for a year. If tea weren’t enough, you can also enter to win free chicken for a year by liking Cowboy Chicken on Facebook between Oct. 15 and Oct. 23. Winners will be announced Oct. 24, according to a news release.
The location at 5050 N. Palm Ave. marks the third location for the franchise in California. The first iteration opened in Rancho Bernardo near San Diego, followed by the second opening in Bakersfield.
It also is the third location for franchisee partnership of Hanford-based TEXACO Foods and Cal Capitol Investment Group, which signed the biggest franchising deal with the fast-casual company for 30 stores in California.
