Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s only fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, is growing once again in Little Rock, Arkansas, opening its fourth spot in the city and second in the northern suburbs. Chicken Salad Chick of North Little Rock-Maumelle features a convenient drive-thru at 13101 Crystal Hill Road in the West Landing shopping center. The restaurant is owned and operated by Emily Gray and business partner Hudson Sandefur, the duo behind Little Rock’s three other Chicken Salad Chick locations. The Maumelle community is invited to celebrate this grand opening on Wednesday, May 8th; the first 100 guests in line will win free chicken salad for a year. 

During grand opening week, local guests can expect to experience the Southern hospitality that Chicken Salad Chick is known for with specials and giveaways that include:

  • Wednesday, May 8 – Free Chicken Salad for a Year to the first 100 Guests – The first guest in line will receive one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per week for an entire year. The next 99 guests in line receive one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per month for a year. Guests should arrive early to secure a place in line.    
  • Thursday, May 9 – The first 100 guests to purchase a Chick Trio receive a free Chicken Salad Chick Cooler with Ice Pack.

Emily Gray and Hudson Sandefur of Little Rocking Chick, LLC first brought Chicken Salad Chick’s made-from-scratch menu and focus on service from the heart to Benton in June 2020. Two more locations followed in 2022 – on Warden Road in North Little Rock and Chenal Parkway on the west side of town. The co-owners have a long history with the company; Gray started out as a corporate trainer, and Sandefur owns several other Chicks across Mississippi and Tennessee.

“Hudson and I are really thankful for our guests throughout the Little Rock area who have supported these businesses over the past four years. Our restaurant teams come to work every day excited about the opportunity to serve the community within our four walls and out and about where they live and play,” says Emily Gray. “Maumelle has so much charm and character; it’s a perfect fit for Chicken Salad Chick’s focus on enriching lives and serving others. Whether they come in to the dining room, pick up in the drive-thru or  want us to cater their next function, we’re going to take great care of our new neighbors.”

This restaurant team enjoys giving back to important causes throughout the year, including partnering with the CSC Foundation to support CURE Childhood Cancer and local food banks. With the North Little Rock-Maumelle opening, they are accepting donations for Arkansas Children’s Hospital as part of their pre-opening Friends & Family events.

Chicken Salad Chick North Little Rock-Maumelle will be open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
