Chicken Salad Chick announced the opening of its newest location in Opelika, Alabama. Situated at 2776 Enterprise Drive in Tiger Town near I-85, the new restaurant is Chicken Salad Chick’s third in the Auburn-Opelika metro area, 24th overall in the state, and officially marks the brand’s reentry into the Opelika community following a merge of its previous restaurant with its Auburn location in 2015. The new Tiger Town location will complement existing Chicken Salad Chick restaurants located on Auburn’s Opelika Road and on Auburn University’s campus. The company-owned restaurant, which features a drive-thru, will celebrate its grand opening on Wednesday, October 9.
“While Chicken Salad Chick continues to grow into new states and regions, we find immense joy getting back to our roots to serve our Opelika community with this new location. From our humble beginnings in Auburn eleven years ago, the Auburn and Opelika communities have nurtured and supported our brand with guests and team members to become what it is today.” says Stacy Brown, Founder of Chicken Salad Chick. “Returning to Opelika has always remained a dream of ours and we’re thrilled to be opening our newest restaurant in our very own backyard, in the heart of Tiger Town.”
