Checkers opened Sept. 1 at 7305 W. Broadway St., Pearland. The fast-food chain restaurant serves burgers, fries, shakes, hot dogs and chicken wings, and it only offers drive-thru services.

The franchise owner, Kashif Kabani, has been in Pearland since he was 13 years old. He said he thought Pearland would be the perfect site for a Checkers.

Kabani owns multiple businesses in Pearland and wanted to bring in Checkers, as it is a new fast food restaurant for the Houston area.

“I was tired of the same old stuff,” he said.

Over 70 Checkers and Rallys locations are opening in the Greater Houston area.
