Chicken Salad Chick Opens First Texas Restaurant In North Fort WorthAuburn, AL  (  Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s only southern inspired, fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, announced today it will be opening its first Texas location in North Fort Worth. The new restaurant will open on Tuesday, June 21 at 8825 Tehama Ridge Parkway, Suite 329. Located in the Presidio Towne Crossing Shopping Center, the state’s first Chicken Salad Chick is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team, John and Meggie Schissler, who will be opening two additional locations in the Fort Worth area over the next few years.

“We couldn’t be more excited to open the state’s very first Chicken Salad Chick,” said Meggie Schissler, Fort Worth Chicken Salad Chick franchisee. “After working in the company’s corporate office for several years, I knew I wanted to bring the brand’s fantastic product and southern hospitality to Texas – my home state. We plan to open two additional locations, and I look forward to serving the families of Fort Worth for many years to come.”

During grand opening week, guests will enjoy southern hospitality through giveaways and specials at the new Chicken Salad Chick restaurant:

  • Tuesday, June 21 – The first guest will win a free pound of chicken salad per week for an entire year; the next 99 guests receive a free pound of chicken salad per month.

All week long, the restaurant will also be giving away limited edition Chicken Salad Chick Texas t-shirts and will be offering a free pair of Chicken Salad Chick sunglasses to all guests that download the brand’s Craving Credits App.*

The Chicken Salad Chick concept, born in Auburn, Ala., 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 55 restaurants across the Southeast.

Chicken Salad Chick in North Fort Worth will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. For more information, visit, or call 817-857-8501. Follow Chicken Salad Chick on FacebookTwitter and Instagram for the latest news and trends.
