Cowboy Chicken Heads East to Alabama

September 2, 2014

Cowboy Chicken, the popular nine-unit Dallas-based fast casual wood fire rotisserie chicken brand, has signed their fourth new franchisee for 2014, for a total of 20 additional stores. Dia Zuaiter’s 5-store agreement will expand the concept to Birmingham, Tuscaloosa and Huntsville, Alabama.

Dia Zuaiter has been a part of the restaurant industry since he was 18. As a college student at Mary Hardin Baylor, he worked for several fast food chains and was one of the youngest store managers for Taco Bell. His love for the industry led him to open an IHOP with his brother in 2000. With 14 years of owner/operator experience, he was looking to expand his portfolio, and found his home with Cowboy Chicken.
