KANSAS CITY, Mo. (May 4, 2023) – Chicken N Pickle, the country’s premier indoor/outdoor entertainment complex with a casual, chef-driven restaurant, sports bar, pickleball courts and a variety of yard games, has announced tennis professional Jack Sock will join the organization as an investor and community partner. The news follows Sock’s announcement that he plans to play singles, doubles and mixed doubles this weekend at the PPA North Carolina Open.
Established in Kansas City, Missouri, in 2016, Chicken N Pickle, now has fifteen locations open or under development across Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, Nevada and Colorado. The company has been eyeing a partnership with Sock for years, according to Kelli Alldredge, President.
“Jack not only shares our midwestern values, but also is dedicated to growing the sport and supporting our company’s rapid expansion,” said Alldredge. “He brings with him an accomplished tennis career, and also fully aligns with our core values and mission to provide an atmosphere that fosters fun, friendship and community.”
Sock, 30, was raised near the company’s headquarters in Kansas City and quickly rose through the ranks of the professional tennis circuit, winning four career ATP singles titles, 17 doubles titles, and boasting career-high rankings of world No. 8 in singles (November 2017) and world No. 2 in doubles (September 2018). His major doubles titles were earned at the 2011 US Open, 2014 Wimbledon Championships and ATP Finals, and he captured both gold and bronze medals in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
“We are thrilled to have Jack in our first friends and family round of investment,” said Dave Johnson, Founder of Chicken N Pickle. “Jack and his wife Laura are a natural fit for our company and we’re excited for them to join us in extending our community impact efforts.”
