The Rams got their start in franchising with Pizza Patron, owning 10 locations across Texas. They opened their first Chicken Salad Chick in Katy in 2019, following with a second in 2020. They believe whole-heartedly in the brand’s mission to serve others and have really enjoyed becoming part of the communities they serve. During the coronavirus pandemic, the Rams donated more than 400 meals to first responders and health care workers at local hospitals. They have also been hosting pop-up lunches around town to serve fans who have been anxiously waiting for this West University restaurant to open.  

“We love the small-town atmosphere that West University provides right in the midst of the action in Houston,” says Kathleen Ram. “Our newest location is centrally located for work, school, retail and fun. It’s the ideal spot for on-the-go professionals and families looking for delicious food made with fresh ingredients every day. We can’t wait to serve our flavorful varieties of chicken salad and sides to this community.”
