Written by Wendy Teng and Katy Magazine’s Editors

The Stockdicks put their footprints on Katy land long before the town of Katy even existed. In honor of the family’s contributions to Katy, many Katyites have recognized area sites named in their honor like Stockdick Road, Stockdick School Road, and Stockdick House at Heritage Park.

Chick-fil-A Mason Road Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Katy, TX News (September 9, 2015) – Chick-fil-A Mason Road celebrates their 20th anniversary on September 14th, 2015. Rusty Wylie, franchisee of the Mason Road location since its Grand Opening, also operates the Cinco Ranch and Greenhouse Chick-fil-A locations. “What an amazing journey it has been. To have started 20 years ago and been a part of the growth of Katy for the past 20 years is beyond what I ever imagined possible. It really has been a blessing to be a part of this community. We are thankful for the support of our guests, and the groups we partner with here in Katy,” Mr. Wylie commented. The Mason Road location was just the third free standing restaurant for Chick-fil-A in the Houston area when it opened in 1995. Now sixty-three stand-alone locations dot the local landscape. Mr. Wylie explained, “When we opened, Chick-fil-A was really struggling with results in the Houston area. Our brand awareness was low. People didn’t know who we were, what products we served, or even how to say our name!” However, it didn’t take long for Chick-fil-A’s popularity to soar.
