(Parker, Colo.) The Chicken N Pickle is an entertainment destination that features pickleball courts, a sports bar, and a full restaurant making its way to Parker.
Since its inception seven years ago, Chicken N Pickle’s popularity has grown continuously as it opened over a dozen locations from Missouri to Colorado.
Brad Clarke, Chicken N Pickle’s chief executive officer, estimates that the upcoming Parker location will draw over 650,000 visitors annually and create more than 180 jobs in the community.
Parker Mayor Jeff Toborg is excited to welcome this new concept to Parker for the entertainment and the economic boost it will provide.
“Parker has a very active pickleball community, and we’ve been working hard in recent years to help meet the demands for the fast-growing sport,” Toborg said.
“Chicken N Pickle not only provides experienced pickleball players with another option to play, it also serves as a new entry point into the sport and a unique entertainment option for residents of all ages. I’m sure they will find great success here in Parker.”
The location is set to open in 2024 at the Gatherings at Parker, in a 1.5-acre multi-level property at the intersection of North Jordan Road and Colorado E-470.
