Richie's Chicken has always been a family business
The original Richie's Chicken was founded in 1986 in Frankfort by Richard "Richie" Bhoolai, known for amazing fried chicken in a fast-food environment. Richie's Chicken has always been a family business. Richie's daughter, Danielle grew up in the business. Her first job was filing hot sauce cups at the age of 5, and by 8 running the register.
