Roaming Rooster to Expand to Downtown Silver Spring

Roaming Rooster, a restaurant chain based in D.C. with 11 locations in the region, is set to open a new spot at 8537 Georgia Ave. in Downtown Silver Spring.

The new location will take the place of the former Flip’d by IHOP spot, which closed last June after the company decided to discontinue the quick-serve concept.

The Downtown Silver Spring location will be Roaming Rooster’s third in Montgomery County, according to The MoCo Show. The local chain already operates at Pike & Rose and the Firstfield Shopping Center, providing a range of fried chicken options including sandwiches, tenders, wings, and more.

According to the restaurant’s website, Roaming Rooster was established in Washington, D.C. in early 2015 by a family with a unique concept:

The idea of a food truck with fried chicken that you could feel good about eating: free-range, grain-fed, and antibiotic free chicken served fresh every day. Within months, word got out on social media about the delicious poultry menu and the demand for Roaming Rooster soon called for the expansion from one food truck to three and subsequently, to numerous brick and mortars. Since then, the popularity of the only food truck in D.C. serving tasty free-range chicken has grown massively. Requests for catering, private events, and scheduled food truck visits have been pouring in from D.C. and the surrounding areas of Maryland and Virginia. The fast expansion of Roaming Rooster in just under a year is easy to explain – where your food comes from matters, and we bring that ideal to every meal we serve.

An opening date has not yet been announced. The Source will provide updates as more information becomes available.
