The Chicken Salad Chick Foundation, a non-profit organization affiliated with Chicken Salad Chick, announced it raised over $100,000 through its third annual Coupon Book fundraiser to provide 400,000 meals to hungry families across eight states. As part of the fundraiser, the CSCF partnered with 60 participating Chicken Salad Chick locations and their respective food-related charities to sell 22,000 Chicken Salad Chick coupon books in November and December, which can be redeemed over the course of the 2017 calendar year.
“We couldn’t be more proud of the impact the CSCF has had on hungry families across the Southeast,” says Stacy Brown, Chicken Salad Chick founder. “Over the past three years, the foundation has raised more than $250,000 for local food-related charities, providing the equivalent of 1 million meals. The continued success of this fundraiser is a true testament to the CSCF’s mission to feed the hungry, and we look forward to positively impacting the lives of those in need for years to come.”
The Chicken Salad Chick concept, born in Auburn, Alabama, was established in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. When Stacy discovered that the local county health department would not allow her to continue making and selling her delicious recipes out of her home kitchen, she overcame that obstacle by launching her first restaurant with the business expertise of her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant, which quickly grew; the company now has more than 60 restaurants across the Southeast.
