“By the end of the year, we will have opened five new Chicken Salad Chick restaurants in Tennessee, including two in the Nashville area,” said Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. “Our growth in the state continues to skyrocket and its largely due in part to our loyal guests who aren’t shy about showing their love for our unique concept, Southern charm and made-from-scratch recipes. We are thrilled to be opening a new restaurant in Franklin and look forward to bringing Chicken Salad Chick to more communicates throughout Tennessee.”
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 and began franchising in 2012. In 2015, Eagle Merchant Partners purchased a majority stake in Chicken Salad Chick, and under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and team, the company now has 104 restaurants across the Southeast.
Chicken Salad Chick in Franklin will be open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. For more information, visit http://www.chickensaladchick.com or call (334) 275-4578. Follow Chicken Salad Chick on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest news and trends.
