Chicken Salad Chick Announces Additional Birmingham Franchise

Southern fast-casual restaurant concept to open second area franchise

(BIRMINGHAM) Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s newest fast-casual restaurant concept, has announced the development of a second location in Birmingham. The new restaurant, set to open in mid-November, will be located in SoHo Square at 1830 29th Avenue South, Homewood, AL 35209. The company’s first area location is scheduled to open in the Village at Lee Branch in September. “It was very important for us to select the right locations in Birmingham, and we can confidently say that we’re very pleased to move forward in Homewood,” says president Kevin Brown. “We appreciate the patience of our loyal fans in Birmingham, and are excited to open two area locations by the end of this year.”

Born In Alabama – The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in Auburn, Ala. in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. Stacy quickly learned that selling a homemade recipe from her kitchen is against the law, and after being shut down by the health department, she decided to solicit the business expertise of her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant which quickly grew to enormous demand and additional locations. The unique concept puts an edgy twist on a southern classic by offering customers a “custom-fit” chicken salad experience, with 15 original flavors to choose from, as well as gourmet soups, flavorful side salads and freshly-baked desserts. Chicken Salad Chick has sold 85 franchises to be developed across the states of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Tennessee, and North Carolina & South Carolina, and has plans to expand nationally in the coming years. “We are thrilled to announce another coming Birmingham location,” said Chicken Salad Chick Founder Stacy Brown. “So many of the guests that we see in our Auburn restaurants are from Birmingham, so we are very much looking forward to serving them, as well as many new guests, in their own communities!”
