Chicken Salad Chick is set to open a new restaurant in Flowood, Mississippi on 27 March this year.
The new Flowood restaurant, owned and operated by franchisees Blake and Shae Fuller, will be the fast-casual southern-inspired chain’s third location in Mississippi and 85th location nationwide.
The Fuller team, along with their business partners David Stephens and Walt Marcello, have plans to open new Chicken Salad Chick locations throughout Mississippi.
Blake Fuller said: “It has always been a dream of ours to own a restaurant, but we couldn’t find a concept that aligned with our personal values and goals. The moment I was introduced to Chicken Salad Chick that all changed.
“The simplicity of the restaurant operations coupled with the high-quality chicken salad and friendly environment make Chicken Salad Chick a unique dining experience. We’re thrilled to be joining a brand that we believe in and look forward to bringing this one-of-a-kind concept to more communities in the state I’ve called home for nearly 37 years.”
Additional restaurants are planned to open in the Hattiesburg and Jackson, Mississippi markets. The first Hattiesburg restaurant is scheduled to open this summer.
Founded by Stacy Brown and established in 2008, Chicken Salad Chick opened as a small takeout restaurant and now has more than 80 restaurants in 11 US states.
It serves full-flavored, Southern-style chicken salad made from scratch in more than a dozen original chicken salad flavours as well as fresh side salads, gourmet soups, signature sandwiches and desserts.
