Sticky’s Chicken, which counts Wiz Khalifa, Jas Prince, Bun B and Houston Texans star DeAndre Hopkins among its fans, is getting a brick-and-mortar location.
The popular food truck, launched by sister-brother duo Patsy Vivares and Benson Vivares in 2014, will open at 2313 Edwards St. at Sawyer Yards on Dec. 13, according to a Tuesday release.
The fast-casual restaurant, 1,500 square feet, will offer counter service, seating for up to 35, two 65-inch flat-screen TVs, wine and beer.
It will open with a limited menu of food truck favorites including nuggets, sliders, wings, fries and chicken over rice. All feature chicken sauteed in a house-made “sticky” sauce created by the Vivares’ father, Ceferino Vivares.
Pham is a partner in the brick-and-mortar location of Sticky’s, along with Andy Nguyen (Afters Ice Cream in Huntington Beach, CA) and Tuan Bui.
“We are very excited to partner with Andy, Mike and Tuan. We’ve known them for more than 20 years through mutual friends in Houston, and their expertise has been invaluable as we decided to grow,” Patsy Vivares said in the release.
“We’re just two kids from Pearland who started a food truck five years ago – my brother, who was working at the post office and about to get laid off, took out a loan and bought an old Fed-Ex truck. To be opening a restaurant is like a dream come true.”
Sticky’s Chicken food truck will remain open on Thursdays and Saturdays at McIntyre’s in the Heights, where it’s operated since 2016, according to the release.
