This Texas-based chain does things a little differently

The first location opened in 1979.

The main complaint most diners have about chain restaurants is that very few, if any, have much of a reputation for making their dishes from scratch. But as you might have guessed by the name, Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen prides itself in doing things a little differently, and there’s a lot you might not know about this popular Texas-based chain.

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen (Slideshow)

Cheddar’s got its start in 1979, when the first location was opened in Arlington, Texas, by founders Doug Rogers and Aubrey Good. The chain slowly expanded over the next decade and a half (Rogers served as president and CEO, Good served as the chief operating officer, and Good’s son, Gregory, joined the team in 1991), and by 1995, 10 locations had opened.

The chain began to attract more investors as additional locations continued to open, and in 2006 (with 55 open locations), the company was bought by current owners Oak Investment Partners and Catterton partners. There are currently about 160 locations in 23 states, 60 of which are franchised.

Cheddar’s differentiates itself from the competition by claiming to use “simple, honest, natural ingredients,” and “scratch-made recipes, handcrafted with care and time.” Ribs are slow-smoked starting early in the morning, and a glimpse into the kitchen will reveal what looks a lot more like an independent restaurant than a chain.

Read on to learn 10 new things about this popular and rapidly expanding chain. Even if there isn’t one in your neck of the woods right now, the odds of one opening not too far from you are pretty good.


7 Things You Didn't Know About the Real Colonel Sanders

Did you know the real Colonel Sanders once tried to sue KFC?

The chicken chain's recent marketing campaign has brought Colonel Sanders back to American television screens, embodied first by Darrell Hammond and now by Norm Macdonald. The move has been controversial: any over-the-top portrayal of a real human by a celebrity is going to rub some people the wrong way. (And yes, Colonel Sanders was indeed a real human a study referenced in the 2012 book Colonel Sanders and the American Dream showed that less than 40 percent of Americans aged 19 to 25 were aware of that.)

However, KFC's biggest misstep has been the sanitization of the Colonel. As our own Ray Hennessey wrote, "The new Colonel is a caricature, carefully choreographed by the company and its creative hired hands. Instead of resurrecting the Colonel to lead KFC's sales back to their former fried glory, the company has instead unleashed a childish pantomime that people old enough to remember Colonel Sanders don't like and people too young to know him can't possibly understand."

KFC has been eager to celebrate kitschy parts of the Colonel's history, while ignoring more complex attributes that made him both successful and dangerous to the brand while alive. Here are a few of the most interesting facts about Colonel Sanders that many people don't know &ndash including a few that KFC probably would rather gloss over.
