Chicken Salad Chick Announces Plans To Open Location In Chattanooga

Wednesday, October 09, 2013

Chicken Salad Chick, a new fast-casual restaurant concept, announced on Wednesday the development of a franchise location in Chattanooga. The new restaurant will be in the Miller Brothers Building at 629 Market Street, Chattanooga.

“We are so excited to add this new location to the growing Chicken Salad Chick community throughout the Southeast,” said Kevin Brown, president of Chicken Salad Chick. “It has been such a blessing to have franchisees join in sharing the Chicken Salad Chick experience with their own communities.”

Josh Patton, owner of the Chattanooga restaurant, has wanted to open a franchise in Tennessee since his initial exposure to the Chicken Salad Chick concept in 2008. “Stacy quickly got to know me by name after multiple visits per week, and sometimes two visits in one day,” said Mr. Patton. “I’m ecstatic to bring this to Tennessee. I have friends that constantly ask when I will be open and other friends asking me to bring this to their state.”

“Kevin and I have been overwhelmed with the desire for people find a home for Chicken Salad Chick in their own communities,” said Chicken Salad Chick Founder Stacy Brown. “It is so encouraging that our own customers want to share our concept and passion with those in their area.”

“The chosen location on Market Street is perfect for us to showcase our brand to both our loyal customers and to those who have yet to enjoy the Chicken Salad Chick experience,” said Mr. Brown. “This convenient location, along with our other stores opening in the next few months, represent a very exciting time in the young life of our company.”
