Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s newest fast-casual restaurant concept, is scheduled to open its new franchise location in Chattanooga on April 1. The new restaurant will be located in the Miller Brothers Building at 629 Market St., Chattanooga, Tn. 37402.
“We are so excited to open our first location in the state of Tennessee,” 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 restaurant to Tennessee. I have friends that constantly ask when I will be open and other friends asking me to bring this to their state.”
“It is so encouraging that one of our most loyal customers is finally opening his own Chicken Salad Chick!” said Founder Stacy Brown. “We got to know Josh when he was a student at Auburn and frequent customer of our original location, and we are so excited that he is bringing our concept and passion to Tennessee.”
“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.”
