Misty Whitehead opened her first Mobile-area Chicken Salad Chick in Hillcrest in 2013, followed by locations on Old Shell Road and in Government Plaza, as well as in Daphne. She partnered with her husband, Peter, to expand into Gulf Shores and Saraland, and now the couple is thrilled to bring the Chick’s flavorful, made-from-scratch chicken salad favorites to Fairhope.     

“Peter and I love being part of the day-to-day of our restaurants, getting to know our guests and helping to put smiles on their faces,” says Misty Whitehead. “We have really been looking forward to opening in Fairhope, with its Southern charm, beauty and hospitality. It’s a perfect fit for Chicken Salad Chick’s focus on service from the heart.”  

The Whiteheads and their local restaurant teams enjoy giving back to important causes. With the Fairhope opening, they will be supporting Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) of Mobile as part of their pre-opening Friends & Family events. RMHC of Mobile is a safe haven for families whose children are receiving life-saving medical treatment in nearby hospitals. Misty has served on the board of directors of the organization for many years, donating her time and talents as well as making donations through fundraisers with the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation.  

Chicken Salad Chick in Fairhope will be open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
