Chicken Salad Chick announced its continued expansion in Ohio with its newest company-owned restaurant in Western Hills. Less than two years after debuting the brand’s first Cincinnati area location in 2019, the Western Hills restaurant marks the fifth location in the greater metropolitan area, alongside both company and franchise restaurants in Mason, Anderson, Oakley, and Crestview Hills. Located at 3420 Werk Road, the Western Hills restaurant, which features a drive-thru, will celebrate its grand opening on April 21 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.

“There are so many vibrant towns around the greater Cincinnati area, each with a diverse and bustling food scene. Our four existing locations have introduced residents to the rich, fresh flavors of Chicken Salad Chick and the Southern-inspired cuisine has been a fast favorite,” says Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. “We are thrilled to continue our expansion in the area and couldn’t have chosen a better place than Western Hills for our fifth location. We look forward to welcoming guests, both new and returning, to our restaurant and know the best is yet to come.”

Chicken Salad Chick is closely following Ohio’s state and local guidelines for COVID-19 procedures and will open the Western Hills restaurant with social distancing measures in place. All employees will be wearing masks, as well as practicing proper handwashing and food safety protocol, and all guests will be required to wear masks until seated for dining.
