The Fayetteville restaurant is owned and operated by first-time franchise owner Sharon Etchisonof 72 Hours, LLC. With background in business administration and human resource management, Etchison is skilled in directing operations and will be working alongside her husband Mike to make the Fayetteville restaurant a success. The duo has dreamed of owning their own Chicken Salad Chick restaurant since first visiting the concept in Mobile, Alabama and are proud to be introducing the unique concept to their community.
“The hospitable culture and deliciously fresh food that drew me to the brand as a customer are the same things that make me the proud franchise owner I am today,” says Etchison. “Chicken Salad Chick is a restaurant unlike any other and in a sea of burger joints and fast food restaurants, the brand’s innovative menu items and flavorful creations are sure to be a hit in Fayetteville. I’m thrilled to finally be joining the two things I love most, Fayetteville and The Chick, and can’t wait to open my doors!”
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 more than 125 restaurants currently open in 15 states and remains a standout brand within the fast casual segment.
