Franchise owners Jennifer Sanchez and Keith Murray are planning to build multiple locations throughout New Mexico. “Keith and I fell in love with Chicken Salad Chick – the food, the culture, the brand. I had the privilege of working for the Chicken Salad Chick support center as an executive for the past two years and wanted to bring all that Chicken Salad Chick has to offer to my hometown of Albuquerque. We are excited to bring the local taste of Bueno Green Chile to our community to enjoy with their chicken salad.”

Aligned with Chicken Salad Chick’s stated purpose to ‘spread joy, enrich lives and serve others,’ Sanchez-Murray look forward to giving back to the Albuquerque community. They are supporting the Veterans Integration Centers with a portion of proceeds from the grand opening events.

Chicken Salad Chick will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.
