Family-friendly destination is announced as major entertainment tenant and will feature indoor and outdoor pickleball courts, craft cocktails and chef-driven casual restaurant
Kansas City, Mo. (December 28, 2023) – Chicken N Pickle – a family-friendly indoor/outdoor entertainment complex with a casual, chef-driven restaurant, sports bar, pickleball courts and a variety of yard games – has announced Omaha, Nebraska, as the site of its newest location and its first in Nebraska. Chicken N Pickle will build its signature complex at Tranquility Commons, a 55-acre development at 120 th & Fort in Northwest Omaha. Chicken N Pickle plans to break ground on the 55-acre multi-level Omaha property in 2024, opening to the public in 2025.
"Chicken N Pickle is the ideal complement to our youth multi-sports complex and tournament facility at Tranquility Park and the neighboring Tranquility Commons development," said Mayor Jean Stothert. "It will enhance Tranquility as a destination for sports entertainment and recreation."
Established in Kansas City, Missouri, in 2016, Chicken N Pickle is a wildly popular destination for families, young adults and corporate gatherings. The company has since expanded to Wichita, Kansas; San Antonio, Texas; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Overland Park, Kansas; Grand Prairie, Texas; Grapevine, Texas; Glendale, Arizona and St. Charles, Missouri. Seven more locations have been announced or are under development, including Webster, Texas; Allen, Texas; Henderson, Nevada; Thornton, Colorado; Parker, Colorado; Fishers, Indiana and Omaha, Nebraska.
"Chicken N Pickle was first to the market over seven years ago, and our 'low-tech, high touch' concept is simple," said Brad Clarke, CEO of Chicken N Pickle. "Guests visit our properties seeking an experience, and one of the most rewarding things we see is when people gather on our pickleball courts and game yard, or over high-quality food and a craft cocktail, while connecting with their family and friends. Our properties provide a safe, inclusive and playful backyard-style environment where memories are made, magic comes to life and fun and play happen all year round.”
Chicken N Pickle will join the Tranquility Commons development as an anchor tenant alongside hotels, restaurants, retail and other community-building features designed to draw people in every day of the week. Tranquility Commons is located steps away from Omaha’s new premier youth multi-sport complex scheduled to be completed in 2026.
“We couldn’t be more excited for how well Chicken N Pickle’s mission aligns with both the city’s mission at Tranquility Park and our own here at Tranquility Commons,” said Patrick Mulhall, Principal of Wicklow Companies, the Developer of the project. "Chicken N Pickle has the perfect mix of good food and family-fun entertainment, which makes it a great place to visit any day of the week. We can’t wait for everyone to experience it for themselves."
Chicken N Pickle's main dining area is spacious enough for corporate and social events, from lunch meetings to large rehearsal dinners and team-building events. Its Omaha location will feature indoor and outdoor bars, multiple dining areas on the main floor and rooftop dining with outdoor tables for guests. The venue will offer numerous indoor and outdoor pickleball courts and a variety of lawn games, such as cornhole, ping pong, battleship and Jenga.
Using responsibly raised, antibiotic- and hormone-free chicken, the menu includes delicious, rotisserie dishes available in four different seasonings along with pork and beef sandwiches, as well as signature hand-cut fries and tots. Chicken N Pickle is committed to giving back to the communities they serve through philanthropic events and service-oriented endeavors. In 2023, Chicken N Pickle has supported over 2,800 charitable organizations, and has put more than $535,000 back into local communities through in-kind and general donations and property give-backs.
"We say 'our hearts are local' and that sentiment touches everything we do, from our community givebacks to using locally-sourced ingredients when possible,” said Kelli Alldredge, President of Chicken N Pickle. “We ‘walk the walk,’ aiming to give back daily while maintaining a philanthropic presence where we live, work and play. We are thrilled to become a part of the Omaha community and begin supporting the neighborhoods around us."
