Father-and-son team Beau and Pete Nicolosi of PN&A LLC, stumbled upon Chicken Salad Chick while on vacation in Destin, Florida in 2012. Beau immediately realized the potential behind the unique brand and was eager to bring the concept to his hometown of Lafayette. Since opening their first restaurant in 2016, the duo now owns four Chicken Salad Chick locations across Lafayette, Denham Springs and Baton Rouge. The Nicolosis plan to open two additional locations in the greater Baton Rouge area by 2021.

“Chicken Salad Chick’s individuality and distinctive charm drew me in from the start and it’s been an incredible journey sharing the concept with others across Louisiana,” says Beau Nicolosi. “After watching the concept thrive in the Lafayette community, we were bound to expand to the Baton Rouge area. Now, we’re thrilled to continue our growth near LSU’s campus, my alma mater, where Chicken Salad Chick will serve as a great addition to the community, bringing quality, fresh food to students and families.”

The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 by founder, Stacy Brown. Under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and the Chicken Salad Chick team, the company now has more than 145 restaurants currently open in 16 states.
