Kevin Royal of KBR Corporation opened his first Chicken Salad Chick in Gainesville, FL in May, and is now gearing up to spread his love of chicken salad down the Florida coast to Wellington alongside his brother and franchise partner, Bryan Royal. During their first visit to a Chicken Salad Chick, the duo was instantly drawn to the simple concept and welcoming experience, and they knew South Florida would be the perfect place to continue expanding the Southern brand. 

“Dining at Chicken Salad Chick is like dining at the home of a gracious friend, and we are so excited to bring that comfort and warmth to the Wellington community,” says Kevin Royal. “My family and I believe Floridians will love our made from scratch, full-flavored, Southern-style chicken salad, and we look forward to growing the brand in the South Florida region.”

Chicken Salad Chick Wellington will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.
