Pickleball in St. Charles
Chicken N Pickle Selects Saint Charles as Site of Seventh Location
Entertainment destination, pickleball courts and casual, chef-driven restaurant to open in new, mixed use development along the Katy Trail
Saint Charles, Mo. – Chicken N Pickle, the unique, indoor/outdoor entertainment complex including a casual, chef-driven restaurant and sports bar that boasts pickleball courts and a variety of yard games, has announced Riverpointe Development as the site of its seventh location. Located straight south of I-70 in Saint Charles, Riverpointe is a 120-acre development near the Katy Trail and the famed Saint Charles Historic Main Street.
Born in Kansas City in late 2017, Chicken N Pickle’s original location has become a wildly popular destination for families, young adults and corporate gatherings. The company’s first move outside of Kansas City was to Wichita, KS in 2019, then San Antonio, TX in 2020 and Oklahoma City, OK in 2021, with new stores in Overland Park, KS and Grand Prairie, TX expected to open late 2021.
With this new addition to Saint Charles, it’s estimated that Chicken N Pickle will generate over 700,000 visitors annually and create over 150 jobs in the community.
Chicken N Pickle has engaged global design firm Populous to lead the way on this project. The Kansas City-based company has nearly 40 years of experience and has worked on more than 3,000 projects. Populous shares Chicken N Pickle’s goal of creating experiences that amplify the joy felt in shared human moments.
“I couldn’t be happier to have Chicken N Pickle jump start one of the city’s hottest developments – Riverpointe,” said Saint Charles Mayor Dan Borgmeyer. “The city is excited to work with Chicken N Pickle, who is a quality partner and will be a great addition to our community.”
The main dining area is spacious enough for corporate and social events, from lunch meetings to large rehearsal dinners and team building events. Chicken N Pickle Saint Charles will be equipped with bars, pavilions, multiple dining areas on the main floor and a rooftop dining experience, along with outdoor tables for guests to enjoy. The venue will feature numerous indoor and outdoor pickleball courts, shuffleboard and Bocce ball courts, and a variety of lawn games.
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 and their signature hand-cut fries and tots.
Chicken N Pickle’s cultural imperative to the community is to give back, with many philanthropic events and service oriented endeavors to strengthen its neighborhood and beyond. They believe in building long-lasting solutions to address the needs of the communities in which they live, work and play.
“One of our key tenets is to give back to the communities we serve,” said Bill Crooks, Chief Experience Officer at Chicken N Pickle. “We say ‘our hearts are local’ because we support the communities we serve through philanthropy and through our business practices. We are thrilled to become a part of the Saint Charles community.”
The Chicken N Pickle Foundation was formed in 2020 and works in partnership with local health, wellness and relationship-building charitable organizations to improve the lives of people in the communities we serve.
