Continuing the Dallas-Fort Worth area development is multi-unit franchising husband-and-wife duo, Meggie and John Schissler of Hazel5 Ventures. Meggie first began working with Chicken Salad Chick in a corporate position as marketing assistant and quickly fell for the brand’s one-of-a-kind concept. Although new to franchising and restaurant management, Meggie and John took a leap of faith alongside Chicken Salad Chick and began their business ownership journey by debuting the brand’s first Texas restaurant in Ft. Worth in 2016. Five years later, the couple has played an integral role in Chick Salad Chick’s Texas growth, opening a total of six locations in the state over the years. Following their Midlothian restaurant, the Schisslers plan to debut another Dallas-Fort Worth area location in Southlake early 2022.  

“With love at first bite, John and I knew an opportunity lay ahead with Chicken Salad Chick and ultimately drove us to start a new life in Fort Worth,” says Meggie Schissler. “From the first Texas location to now operating our sixth restaurant, we have come to truly love our community in Dallas-Fort Worth and our dedication to the brand has only grown stronger. Our goal is to continue spreading joy, enriching lives, and serving others in each of our communities just like Midlothian.”
