The Ocean Springs restaurant is owned and operated by Hudson Sandefur and Bruce Ratcliffe of Spring City Chick, LLC. They are the duo that brought Chicken Salad Chick to D’Iberville in 2018 and expanded to Gulfport less than two years later. Sandefur owns five other Chicken Salad Chick locations in Arkansas and Tennessee as well as multiple Zaxby’s restaurants throughout the Gulf Coast region. Ratcliffe got his start in restaurants managing Zaxby’s locations in Baldwin County, Alabama, for 13 years.
“We could not be more excited to have finally found a location in the City of Discovery and continue bringing Chicken Salad Chick to fans along the Mississippi Gulf Coast,” says Bruce Ratcliffe. “Ocean Springs is a beautiful town that has the exact combination of class, sass and fun we try to bring wherever we go. We can’t wait to start serving our freshly made chicken salad flavors to the wonderful people of this community.”
This restaurant group enjoys giving back to important causes, donating since 2018 to Back Bay Mission in Gulfport and D’Iberville through Chicken Salad Chick’s annual Giving Card program. With the Ocean Springs opening, they will be supporting The Lord is My Help Food Kitchen as part of their pre-opening Friends & Family events. The food pantry and meal distribution service is working to put an end to hunger in Ocean Springs. The local Chick team looks forward to working with them wherever they can.
