Since 1973, White Fence Farm – the iconic Lakewood all-American dining experience, has been serving up its famous finger-lickin' fried chicken, with only minor tweaks along the way. Now the team, featuring new ownership as of 2014, will work its way oh-so-slightly westward, with new quick-and-easy locations in Capitol Hill and the 16th Street Mall, set to open in June.
Giving busy, but hungry eaters throughout the city an opportunity to taste the family-style cooking more regularly, the new owners intend to maintain the original Colorado restaurant as is, but will extend the brand with the new take-out option. The 16th Street Mall location will appear as a kiosk at the intersection at California Street. The team will also open in Capitol Hill at 9th Ave. and Corona St., in Arvada at W. 88th Ave. and Wadsworth Blvd., and a booth at Elitch Gardens.
Co-owner Tom Piercy grew up only three blocks from the White Fence Farm location in Romeoville, Ill., fondly recalling the chicken dinners of his childhood.
The new take-out friendly locations are said to include tables for patrons to socialize or get work done while eating or waiting.
