The unique dining/pickleball experience is the latest development at The Crossing at Fishers District

INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 5, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Thompson Thrift, a full-service nationally recognized real estate company, announced today the sale of a 1.5-acre parcel in the Indianapolis suburb of Fishers to Kansas City-based Chicken N Pickle. Chicken N Pickle, the unique, indoor/outdoor entertainment complex which includes a casual, chef-driven restaurant and sports bar, plus pickleball courts and yard games, plans to open their new location in 2025.

“The Crossing at Fishers District is already a one-of-a-kind development dedicated to enhancing the Fishers community, so we’re very pleased to welcome a unique, family-focused establishment like Chicken N Pickle to Indiana,” said Ryan Menard, vice president of development for Thompson Thrift. “Not only does it offer a distinct dining and entertainment option for the people of Fishers, but it is also expected to create more than 150 new jobs and generate considerable revenue for the city.” 

Pickleball is now the fastest-growing sport in the nation for the fifth consecutive year, and it is estimated that the new Fishers location will generate over 700,000 visitors annually. Patrons will enjoy a main dining area that is spacious enough for corporate and social events as well as bars, multiple dining areas and a rooftop dining experience. The venue will also feature numerous indoor and outdoor pickleball courts and a variety of lawn games.

Chicken N Pickle is just the latest in the roster of tenants Thompson Thrift is bringing to Fishers District, the 123-acre, mixed-use development that the company is currently expanding. Once completed, the $750-million development will consist of five distinct developments and will offer an array of multifamily, townhome, hotel, dining, shopping, and entertainment options.

Chicken N Pickle will open at The Crossing at Fishers District, which will also be home to the city-owned Fishers Event Center, a 7,500-seat entertainment and sporting event venue that will be the largest mid-size event center in the region.
