The Monroe restaurant is owned and operated by sisters Ashley Keever and Krista Rhymes, along with their business partner, Matthew Miller of 2 Chicks and a Magnet, Inc. Krista had her first taste of Chicken Salad Chick while visiting Auburn nearly five years ago and was immediately hooked by the brand’s unique culinary offerings and family-friendly atmosphere. Eager to follow in their father’s footsteps and run a successful restaurant of their own, Krista and Ashley teamed up with Matthew to become a Chicken Salad Chick franchise. Together, the team formed 2 Chicks and a Magnet, Inc. and will open their first restaurant in their hometown of Monroe. In addition to Chicken Salad Chick, Krista and Ashley also operate The Muffin Tin and The Trenton House, which are successful bridal registry and gift shops in the local area.
“From the moment my family and I were introduced to Chicken Salad Chick, we knew it was something special,” said Ashley Keever. “We’re thrilled to be part of the brand’s extended family and can’t wait for the residents of Monroe to experience the best chicken salad and genuine hospitality at Chicken Salad Chick.”
The Chicken Salad Chick concept, born in Auburn, was established in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. When Stacy discovered that the local county health department would not allow her to continue making and selling her delicious recipes out of her home kitchen, she overcame that obstacle by launching her first restaurant with the business expertise of her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant, which quickly grew; the company now has 86 restaurants across the Southeast.
