Bush's Chicken is coming to Cuero

By Robert Proctor

The Cuero Record

Cuero will soon be adding a new restaurant to the community. Within the next three months, Bush’s Chicken will open in Cuero at the site of the old Subway on Broadway.

Cuero Development Corportation executive director Pat Kennedy met with Bush’s Chicken owner Keith Bush and franchise owner Rick Gallegos on Monday, Feb. 27.

“We’re gonna get the building bought in the next 45 days,” Bush said. “Our architects will be out probably in the next week designing the inside of the kitchen, so we can present it to the City Building Board. We’ll get their approval then start remodeling. Our contractor will be here on-site full-time, Charlie Montgomery. He’ll have it remodeled within six weeks.”

Bush’s family is from Cuero originally, dating back to the 1930s and 40s. 

“We decided Cuero was one of the towns we were gonna do right after Victoria,” Bush said. “This building just fell into our laps.”
