By the mid-to late-1990s, Church's Chicken and hamburger chain White Castle announced their co-franchise, in which both companies would sell their own separate products while operating in some shared restaurant spaces with some shared personnel.[1] In Canada, Church's Chicken items were once available in Harvey's restaurants, but the co-venture was discontinued.[2]
