US-based fast-casual chain Chicken Salad Chick is set to open a new location at 11587 Regency Village Drive in Vineland Pointe, Orlando.

Slated to open on 11 March, the new site will be operated by the company’s franchisees Glenn and Jennifer Pilson of TAB Holdings. It will mark the 20th restaurant for the company in the state.

Jennifer said: “Not only have Glenn and I fallen in love with Chicken Salad Chick, but we’ve also grown to admire the management team.

“We’ve been amazed with the unwavering support they have provided us, which makes opening a restaurant in the area we’ve called home for nearly 20 years that much sweeter.

“The residents in Vineland Pointe are always looking for something fresh and unique.”

“The residents in Vineland Pointe are always looking for something fresh and unique, so we are thrilled to introduce them to Chicken Salad Chick’s savoury and authentic menu offerings.”

In addition, the fast-casual chain is planning to open four additional locations in Florida later this year.

To complement the opening, Chicken Salad Chick also planned various events, including Free Chicken Salad for a year, Meet The Chicks, Free Upgrade Friday and more during the week.

Established in 2008, Chicken Salad Chick offers a range of menu items such as various chicken salads, fresh side salads, gourmet soups, signature sandwiches, and desserts. It currently operates more than 100 restaurants across 13 US states.
