Church’s Chicken Venezuela opts for Dash altcoin

Dash is now the exclusive cryptocurrency payment option at all Church’s Chicken Venezuela locations, with 10 of them launching acceptance this week. It becomes the first major franchise group to accept the altcoin and joins a list of over 2,200 merchants in Venezuela that now take Dash at the PoS.

Originating in Texas in 1952, Church's Chicken is now the fourth largest chicken restaurant chain with more than 1,700 locations across 25 countries. Its Venezuela includes 13 locations, 10 of which are run by franchise operator Venezuela Chicken Restaurant and will be the first stores to integrate Dash payments including two at the international airport, Aeropuerto Nacional de Maiquetía. The remaining three locations will be integrated in the upcoming quarter. To support the launch, for a limited time anyone who pays for combo meals in Dash will receive a free order of small french fries. 

“The Dash Venezuela and Dash Core Group teams have been instrumental in helping us adapt our payment systems, staff training, and providing counsel on all essential internal and legal processes for this integration, helping us become a global pioneer franchise in terms of accepting cryptocurrencies as a payment method,” says Orlando Gustavo Navas, Church’s Chicken Venezuela General Manager.

“This integration was the result of our trust in Dash and its role as a growth agent in this new financial world - a system which can be successful in any market across any number of different industries.”
