Chicken Salad Chick announced on September 11 its continued expansion in Texas with its newest restaurant in Burleson. Marking the brand’s seventh Texas opening and third in the Dallas-Fort Worth area this year, the Burleson restaurant continues a string of development in the state with restaurants in Arlington, Fort Worth and Kingwood slated to open later this year. Located at 264 Southeast John Jones Drive, the Burleson restaurant, which will feature a drive-thru, will open on September 24 and will offer free chicken salad for a year to the first 100 guests.
During grand opening week, guests will experience the southern hospitality that Chicken Salad Chick is known for, with giveaways and specials that include:
The franchise owners behind the newest Dallas-Fort Worth location are experienced multi-unit operators Meggie and John Schissler of J&M Hospitality, LLC. After working on Chicken Salad Chick’s marketing team for two years, Meggie sought to open a restaurant of her own and alongside her husband John, opened the first Chicken Salad Chick restaurant in the state of Texas. Three years later, the duo now owns and operates restaurants in Fort Worth, Hurst and Burleson with plans to open five additional restaurants over the next couple years. The Schissler’s continued growth and success has made them standouts in the fast-casual industry, earning them a spot on QSR Magazine’s 2019 Young Leaders to Watch list.
“After marketing this one-of-a-kind concept to cities across the Southeast, I couldn’t wait for the day when Chicken Salad Chick would open in my home state of Texas,” says Meggie Schissler. “Fast forward three years and John and I are celebrating our third grand opening with the brand and couldn’t be happier. As much as Chicken Salad Chick has become a part of our lives, it’s also become a staple in the lives of the communities we serve, and we’re thrilled to expand that experience to the residents of Burleson.”
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 130 restaurants currently open in 15 states and remains a standout brand within the fast casual segment.
Chicken Salad Chick in Burleson will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.
