Chicken Salad Chick at Lake Boone Trail is owned by John Schuster and Mike Saccone, retired executives who spent the majority of their business careers working in the foodservice division at The Coca-Cola Company.  They opened their first Chick in Cary in 2020, leveraging their experience and passion for the company’s mission of spreading joy, enriching lives and serving others to create a best-in-class culture and employee team. In fact, Chicken Salad Chick of Cary has been honored by the brand as one of the Top 10 performers for the past two years, and its operating partner won general manager of the year for 2023. Schuster and Saccone look forward to bringing this same service excellence to their new location in the heart of Raleigh.   

“So many of our Cary guests over the past three years travel from within Raleigh city limits and ask us when we’re going to open closer to them. It’s been our plan since our first days with Chicken Salad Chick to bring a total of six locations to the Triangle, so this is an exciting next step in our expansion goals,” says John Schuster. “We couldn’t have done it without the continued support of Chick fans in Cary and our amazing team members who embody the brand’s hospitality and service from the heart every day.” 

This restaurant group enjoys giving back to important causes. With the Raleigh opening, they will be supporting the Kay Yow Cancer Foundation as part of their pre-opening Friends & Family events. This is a Raleigh-based national organization named after the former head coach of the North Carolina State University women’s basketball team, who succumbed to cancer. Money raised from Chicken Salad Chick’s annual Giving Card program at the new Raleigh restaurant will also support the Kay Yow Cancer Foundation. 

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