Chicken Salad Chick announced it will be expanding in Ohio with its newest location in Anderson Township. On the heels of Chicken Salad Chick's debut in the state with its restaurant in Westerville, the opening of the Anderson Township restaurant emphasizes the brand's aggressive growth efforts in Ohio, with a location in Mason set to open in October and an additional restaurant in Oakley slated to open later this year. Located at 7917 Beechmont Avenue, the company-owned restaurant will celebrate its grand opening on September 11 and will offer free chicken salad for a year to the first 100 guests.
"Opening our first restaurant in Ohio earlier this summer was an exciting milestone for us and that excitement has continued to build, with the Anderson Township restaurant marking the first of three Cincinnati locations we have slated to open this year," says Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. "From the moment the Chamber of Commerce and residents of Anderson heard we were expanding, they have been eager to express their enthusiasm. It's this kind of warm welcome that makes the debut that much sweeter and we look forward to opening an additional restaurant in Mason with our new franchise owners, the Heydt family, in just a few weeks."
