Our History


In 1965 Henery Busher Chased his dreams and opened a little Chicken Restaurant in Jenison, he named it Chick’n Lick’n. Latter in 2005 Chick’n Lick’n was bought by another man with a dream. Jeff Tanis.

Over the years the Tanis’s have fought to keep Mr. Busher’s original recipe and have been Cooking it up for the happy public to enjoy. In 2009, right at the start of a new year, we were all hit with heartache. Chick’n Lick’n burned to the ground, flames burning bright in the night.

No one gives up easy on a dream.

In 2010, after much struggling and searching, Chick’n Lick’n reopened in Vriesland where we continue to Cook it up for you to enjoy! So stop on in with some friends and talk about your stories over some of our awesome dinners that all started with a dream and some determination.
