Chicken Salad Chick announced it will be expanding in Mississippi with its newest restaurant in Madison. Following the brand’s debut in Flowood in 2018, the Madison restaurant marks Chicken Salad Chick’s second Jackson area location and ninth restaurant in Mississippi. Located at 1917 Main Street, Madison on Main will celebrate its grand opening on October 20 and will offer free chicken salad for a year to the first 100 guests. Those awarded will be properly distanced and will receive a designated return time upon arrival to spread out the number of guests at the restaurant throughout the day.
Chicken Salad Chick is closely following Mississippi’s state and local guidelines for COVID-19 procedures and will open the Madison on Main restaurant at limited capacity with social distancing measures in place. All employees will be wearing masks and gloves, as well as practicing proper handwashing and food safety protocol, and all guests will be required to wear masks until seated for dining. For guests who prefer to take their chicken salad to-go, Madison on Main has a drive-thru for added convenience.
During grand opening week, guests will experience the southern hospitality that Chicken Salad Chick is known for, with modified giveaways and specials that include:
Tuesday, October 20 – Free Chicken Salad for a Year – The first 100 guests will receive one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per month for an entire year, with one lucky guest randomly selected to win one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per week.* Any guest not part of the first 100 in line can make an in-store purchase and enter for a chance to win free chicken salad for a year.
Wednesday, October 21 – The first 50 guests to purchase three large Quick Chicks will receive a free Chick charcuterie board.
Thursday, October 22 – The first 100 guests to purchase a Chick Trio will receive a free Chick tumbler.
Friday, October 23 – The first 50 guests to purchase a Chick Special will receive a free Chick blanket.
Saturday, October 24 – The first 50 guests to purchase two large Quick Chicks will receive a free large Chick cooler.
The Madison restaurant is owned and operated by multi-unit franchise owners Blake and Shae Fuller of Taste and C, LLC.
The pair opened their first Chicken Salad Chick restaurant in Flowood in 2018 and currently operate an additional location in Hattiesburg. Madison on Main marks the Fullers’ third restaurant opening in just two years, and while spreading chicken salad to more communities around Mississippi excites the duo, it’s the relationships they build with loyal guests that truly sweetens their expansion. During the COVID-19 restaurant closures, the Fullers noticed a need to feed the front line workers in the area and alongside restaurant guests, were able to donate nearly 300 meals to nurses, doctors and medical staff.
“Joining the Chicken Salad Chick family is about so much more than becoming a business owner. We have the opportunity to make an impact, both in the community and on a personal level, either through our kind, attentive service or giveback efforts,” says Shae Fuller. “Blake and I have loved serving the Flowood and Hattiesburg communities and look forward to opening our Madison on Main location. The area has a vibrant culinary scene and we know we’ll be a great next addition.”
