Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s only fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, announced today the launch of its brand-new menu item, The Chick Melt. The brand’s first melted specialty sandwich offering, The Chick Melt marks Chicken Salad Chick’s defining stamp on a chicken salad melt. 

The sandwich features each guest’s choice of one of Chicken Salad Chick’s 12+ chicken salad flavors paired with provolone cheese, all atop a toasted, buttery croissant. Chicken Salad Chick’s top-of-the-line toaster technology harmonizes the balance of the sandwich’s golden-brown, crispy exterior and melted, cheesy interior, naturally elevating the brand’s famous made-from-scratch chicken salad flavors to a whole new level. Guests may also select pimento cheese in place of chicken salad for their Chick Melt, all of which are served as a meal with a choice of a fresh side, soup or scoop plus a pickle and a cookie. The new menu item is inviting and comforting, fulfilling cravings for Chick fans across the country. Starting today, Sept. 12, the new product will be served at all 240+ locations.   

“It’s our goal that The Chick Melt creates a moment of joy for guests who bite into it and that it lives up to their high expectations of Chicken Salad Chick, which is why we tested it in select locations before adding it to our menu,” says Tom Carr, chief marketing officer, who leads Chicken Salad Chick’s product development team. “We even had guests describe it as ‘life changing,’ and there’s a reason why. This sandwich checks all the boxes! It’s toasty, cheesy, melty, and of course features any of our made-from-scratch chicken salads. We’re now excited to launch The Chick Melt across the brand.” 

While customers may be familiar with patty melts and tuna melts, Chicken Salad Chick is calling The Chick Melt ‘The Melt of Melts,’ a unique offering found at the nation’s only chicken salad concept. As part of this new menu item launch, Chicken Salad Chick guests can expect to experience the Southern hospitality that Chicken Salad Chick is known for with the following specials and giveaways:
