Meet Max

Chick N Max was hatched in Wichita, KS, a power-center for restaurant and business headquarters. With more than three decades of experience cooking up hot concepts, the Max in our chicken was raised right here in Wichita, and values the many mentors that inspired his love of restaurants as well as the valuable connections they create among friends, families, businesses and communities.

Max Sheets

Founder & CEO

Max’s love of restaurants began back in his teenage days, scraping cheese off the pans in a Pizza Hut kitchen. With a career in restaurant development that now spans almost three decades, he conceptualized Chick N Max and assembled a team of culinary professionals to perfect the menu.

The first Chick N Max landed in 2018 at the heart of Wichita, KS—a metro area long known for ties to successful restaurant start-ups and entrepreneurial genius. Max was raised here and values the many local mentors that inspire his love of restaurants and the connections they create among friends, family, businesses and communities.

As founder and CEO, Max is grateful to put his past to work in a restaurant that prioritizes people and high-quality food as the foundation of every guest experience. Prior to the development of Chick N Max, Max served as an executive in development for Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers, Smashburger, Ted’s Montana Grill, Fox & Hound, and Lone Star Steakhouse.
