The Alexandria restaurant is owned and operated by first time Chicken Salad Chick franchise owners Dustin and Christina Goynes of CSC Alexandria, LLC. The husband-and-wife team are well-versed in business management, previously operating a Home Instead Senior Care location and currently managing Shelter Insurance Agency of Alexandria. The duo’s business expertise and love for serving others pushed them to diversify their portfolio with Chicken Salad Chick and they are thrilled to be opening their first location in Alexandria.
“Christina and I were introduced to Chicken Salad Chick two years ago on a camping trip and we’ve been hooked ever since,” says Dustin Goynes. “We knew the concept would be a perfect fit in Alexandria, as Chicken Salad Chick is so much more than a restaurant, it’s a sense of community. Our friends, family and fellow residents are going to love all that Chicken Salad Chick is and we can’t wait to be a part of it.”
“We’re excited for Christina and Dustin to open their Chicken Salad Chick! They are servant-hearted and eagerly serve others, which makes them a perfect fit for our business and brand,” says Stacy Brown, founder of Chicken Salad Chick. “The Alexandria Chick will most certainly be a welcoming and fun place to be!”
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. Under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and the Chicken Salad Chick team, the company now has more than 140 restaurants currently open in 16 states.
