For decades, Pollard’s has been offering quality home-style food at reasonable prices in Hampton Roads. The Pollard’s legacy started in February of 1967 when my father, Clyde W. Pollard, my brother Robert and I opened Pollard’s Chicken Ranch in Norfolk. Two years later, we dropped the “Ranch” from our name and became Pollard’s Chicken. Our business has always been family-oriented; my sisters Peggy and Elizabeth began helping out as soon as they were old enough to work. My sister Betty Ann Gravely and I now own the business, overseeing eight locations in Hampton Roads. The Pollard’s catering aspect of the franchise was actually started in my mother’s, Elizabeth C. Pollard’s, kitchen in 1953 (then called Betty Pollard’s Catering). Ever evolving with the times, Pollard’s has recently developed a website to allow customers to order meals and catering services online.
