Chicken Cottage International is a UK-based fast food chain. The company is the master franchisor and owner of the "Chicken Cottage" brand. Its taste is modelled on a blend of the Indian Subcontinent and Southern United States flavours using halal ingredients. It currently operates through 115 outlets in the UK.

History

Chicken Cottage International was established in 1994 as a partnership and incorporated in February 2001. The first Chicken Cottage store was opened in 1994 in Wembley, North London[1] and it was here that the Chicken Cottage concept began to take shape.

In February 2014, TI Global Food Holdings Ltd, a subsidiary of Terengganu Incorporated Sdn Bhd (Terengganu Inc), which is the main investment arm of the State of Terengganu, Malaysia, acquired a 70% stake in the company. The remaining 30% was at that point owned by Ri-Yaz Global Food Brands Inc, a subsidiary of Ri-Yaz Holdings, whose main focuses include hospitality, franchise business & development.

Health and safety

The Company has ISO 9001 - 2000 accreditation for its services to its customers accredited in August 2003 and has been reviewed and successfully accredited annually.

On 4 September 2008, the BBC consumer affairs TV programme Rogue Restaurants identified extremely serious environmental health problems with two London outlets of Chicken Cottage where raw chicken was not kept refrigerated for long periods and products were used after their use by dates. The programme did report that the Chicken Cottage headquarters promised to take remedial action once the BBC had informed them of the problems.[2]

Outlets

The Company has 115 franchisees in the UK, nine franchises internationally, and now is expanding to Canada through licensing the trade name and trademark to Chicken Cottage Canada Ltd. Locations include, Pakistan, Algeria, France, Dubai, Slovakia, South Africa, Libya, Sweden, Italy and Iraq with plans to expand into India, Australia and China.
