  • Indoor/outdoor complex to feature pickleball, restaurant and bar

    A Kansas City-based recreation and entertainment chain is planning a location in North Oklahoma City.

    It what will be only their 4th location, Chicken N Pickle has submitted plans to build a new complex near Broadway Extension and Britton Road.

    As part of the larger 9000 Broadway complex, Chicken N Pickle will join Flix Brewhouse as well as proposed restaurants, office and housing on property that was once owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company (OPUBCO).

    Plans show a total of 11 pickleball courts; 5 outdoors and 6 in an enclosed structure. A separate building will house the kitchen and bar, with large overhead doors opening the ground floor to the outdoors and another bar and seating area on the rooftop.

    Pickleball is similar to tennis but played on a smaller court and with hard paddles instead of rackets with strings. It is easier to play and learn than tennis and is growing rapidly in popularity.

    Chicken N Pickle first opened in Kansas City and proved to be a big hit, with a large restaurant and bar area and other yard games.

    The menu features rotisserie chicken, pork and beef along with hand-cut fries along with craft beer on tap from local breweries.

    The second location opened in Wichita and a third is underway in San Antonio.

    9000 Broadway is comprised of 55 acres and is being developed by Randy Hogan in conjunction with American Fidelity, which bought the former OPUBCO headquarters and surrounding land in 2012.

    Oklahoma's first Flix Brewhouse is well under construction and plans to open later this year. A new headquarters for Dolese Brothers is also well underway directly south of this proposed project.
