About Us — Carrying on the Tradition

In 1976 Vernon McFarland perfected a new way to prepare chicken - with a special marinade and breading that created a delicious flavor profile.

Mr McFarland then opened the first Rex's Chicken restaurant in McAlester, Oklahoma. So into a fast food world of legs, wings, and drumsticks, he chose to serve 100% boneless breast of chicken before any other restaurants in America.

The upstart boneless chicken restaurant grew to over 55 locations between 1976-1992. Rex's Chicken Franchise System, LLC was founded in 2007 with the sole purpose of carrying on Vernon McFarland's vision of serving the freshest chicken, fry bread, and sides at locations across the United States.
