For 49 years, chicken lovers have known that the best chicken in town was on the corner of Scott and Wheeler at Frenchy’s. The Creole spices filled the air drawing customers in for miles just to get a 5-wing special, fries, and a strawberry soda. Get ready to learn a new address, as the original location has to make room for the expansion of another Houston treasure, Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church. Temporarily Frenchy’s will operate just down the street from the original location at 4646 Scott. Their two-story permanent home at the corner of Alabama and Scott is under construction with plans to open this summer. Frenchy’s President Percy “King” Creuzot III said selling the original location was done as an honored promise his father made with Wheeler’s founding pastor, Rev. William A. Lawson, to not inhibit the growth of the church.
