Church’s Chicken suffered a cyberattack
that penetrated the payment processing system at some of the chain’s corporate
locations compromising payment card information.
The company operates 941 locations
across the United States, but in a statement
noted only 165
of those, all owned and operated by the corporation, were impacted. Payment
card numbers, names and expiration dates were exposed.
Church’s does not know
exactly when the breach occurred or when the individual locations were exposed
other than noting it was some time in 2019.
“We believe the incident may
involve the payment processing system that services our company-owned
restaurants. We are working hard to
determine specific locations and dates for each restaurant that may have been
involved in the attack. Church’s will
provide updates to guests once we have completed our investigation and know
more about any payment cards that may have been impacted,” Church’s said.
The restaurants impacted are
located in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Louisiana, Missouri,
Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas were involved.
No franchise locations were
hit and those customers who used a delivery app such as Uber Eats or Door Dash
were not compromised.
