Chicken Salad Chick announced it will be expanding in Florida with its newest restaurant in Coral Springs. Kicking off a string of development in the state, the Coral Springs restaurant marks the first Florida opening this year with additional locations in St. Petersburg, Ocala, Gainesville and Wellington slated to open over the next several months. The Coral Springs restaurant, which is located at 2908 North University Drive at The Walk of Coral Springs, will make its South Florida debut on January 27 and will celebrate by offering 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 Florida’s state and local guidelines for COVID-19 procedures and will open the Coral Springs restaurant 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.
During grand opening week, guests will experience the Southern hospitality that Chicken Salad Chick is known for, with giveaways and specials that include:
Wednesday, January 27 – 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 of those lucky guests randomly selected to win one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per week.* Guests can arrive starting at 7am for grand opening day only.
Thursday, January 28 – The first 100 guests to purchase a Chick Special will receive a free Chick Special redeemable on the next visit.

The Coral Springs restaurant is owned and operated by first-time Chicken Salad Chick franchise owners Claibourne and Nicholas Rogers of The Rogers Group, LLC. Claibourne was first introduced to the brand in 2015 while serving as an account director at Chicken Salad Chick’s public relations agency, Fish Consulting. From assisting with grand opening strategies to boosting consumer awareness of the brand’s offerings, she was an integral part of the Chicken Salad Chick team and when presented with the opportunity to open the brand’s first restaurant in South Florida, the Rogers couldn’t resist. The husband-and-wife-team are thrilled to be opening in Coral Springs and have plans to open an additional location in Boca Raton in the next couple years.
“When I started working with Chicken Salad Chick, I immediately fell in love with the founder’s story, the corporate team and the brand’s values. The only downside was that there wasn’t a location near me. So any time I would visit the Auburn headquarters for meetings, I would fill my carry on bag with as much chicken salad as I could fit and share with my coworkers, family and friends. They quickly became hooked and I knew then that Chicken Salad Chick would be the perfect addition to Coral Springs’ growing restaurant scene,” says Claibourne Rogers. “My husband and I are thrilled to be starting our journey as Chicken Salad Chick franchise owners and are excited to introduce South Florida to the flavorful chicken salads we’ve come to love.”
