Chicken Salad Chick announced today it will be expanding to Missouri with its first restaurant opening in Chesterfield. On the heels of a successful 2018 with more than 20 openings across 10 states, the new company-owned restaurant signifies yet another development milestone for the brand, marking its entrance into the Midwest and 13th state. Chicken Salad Chick has plans to open an additional restaurant in Creve Coeur this year, with restaurants in Ohio and Illinois also slated to make a debut. Located at 17215 Chesterfield Airport Road, the Chesterfield restaurant, which features a drive-thru, will open on January 15 and will offer free chicken salad for a year to the first 150 guests.
“Chicken Salad Chick has developed into a regional powerhouse in the Southeast, but it’s become apparent that our Southern hospitality and unique chicken salad flavors are being craved beyond the region as well,” says Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. “Missouri’s genuine excitement for our brand make it the perfect market to kick off our Midwest expansion and we look forward to showing residents in Chesterfield what Chicken Salad Chick is all about.”
During grand opening week, guests will experience the southern hospitality that Chicken Salad Chick is known for, with giveaways and specials that include:
The Chicken Salad Chick concept, born in Auburn, 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 and began franchising in 2012. In 2015, Eagle Merchant Partners purchased a majority stake in Chicken Salad Chick, and under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and team, the company now has 105 restaurants open across the U.S.
Chicken Salad Chick in Chesterfield will be open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.
