"Thus far, Chicken Salad Chick's unique concept has been very well-received in the Houston area, making our continued growth even more exciting," says Jake Alleman. "As we venture on to our fourth opening with the brand, we've seen how much our made-from-scratch chicken salad and unbridled southern hospitality resonates with customers. With our expansion in the metropolitan area on the horizon, we're thrilled to continue providing the exceptional dining experience guests expect when they walk through the doors of our one-of-a-kind eatery."
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 by founder, Stacy Brown. With more than a dozen original chicken salad flavors as well as fresh side salads, gourmet soups, signature sandwiches and delicious desserts, Chicken Salad Chick's robust menu offers a variety of options suitable for any guest. In 2015, Eagle Merchant Partners purchased a majority stake in Chicken Salad Chick, and under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and team, the company now has 115 restaurants currently open in 13 states and remains a standout brand within the fast casual segment.
