The Milledgeville restaurant is owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Lanier and Rod McLeod of RLM Restaurant Group. The duo opened their first Chick in Warner Robins in 2016, then quickly grew with additional locations in Newnan, Carrollton, and Macon. Lanier attended Georgia College & State University, so Milledgeville holds a special place in her heart and memories.  

“For the past seven years, our wonderful restaurant guests have flooded through our doors with support and encouraged us to open locations in their home towns. Their love and enthusiasm for our made-from-scratch chicken salad is our inspiration to continue to grow into new markets,” says Lanier McLeod. “Milledgeville is my second home. There’s been so much anticipation from our guests around this opening, which has been really fun for us to know that the community shares the same excitement we do for Chicken Salad Chick. We can’t wait to serve them.”  

Lanier adds, “Through the years we have also formed a family within our company, and we love to watch these young people grow. It is so rewarding to see team members, who often start in high school, stick with our company and become shift leaders, assistant managers and general managers at our restaurants.” 

In addition to supporting their employees, the McLeods enjoy giving back to important causes. Over the years they have raised funds for local food banks and other worthy organizations throughout Middle Georgia, such as Ronald McDonald House and the Museum of Aviation. The McLeods look forward to getting further involved with the local charities of Milledgeville in the future. 

Chicken Salad Chick in Milledgeville will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.
