Quick Service Restaurant Holdings (QSRH) has acquired the Chooks Fresh & Tasty chicken franchise from its founder, Steve Hansen, and will rebrand them into Chicken Treat operations.

The acquisition involves the integration of the business’ 40 outlets into QSRH, bringing the group’s total global store count to approximately 600, with 75 per cent operating as part of a franchise system.

Hansen told Franchising the acquisition came about after he was approached by QSRH, and that he was willing to sell because he “is getting on in age” and agreed with QSRH’s business model.

“The company is following my model and my space as far as what we are doing with both barbequed and fried chicken, and smaller footprints, so it was logical for them to target us, which is essentially what happened.”
