No getting around the rapid growth of pickleball and Dallas may be at the epicenter of the phenomenon. Dallas suburb Farmers Branch will host the national championships later this summer.
Chicken N Pickle is capitalizing on the area’s interest in the sport. It will open its next Dallas-Fort Worth location in Allen. The company plans to spend $14.7 million on a restaurant to begin construction in September 2023 with slated completion in September 2024. An opening date was not disclosed.
The new Chicken N Pickle will span 43,000 square feet at Johnson Road and Quail Covey Road. The space is expected to include a two-story restaurant, a single-story pickleball court building, and outdoor pickleball courts.
