Thursday, July 10, 2014

Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s newest fast-casual restaurant concept, announced Thursday that their restaurant in downtown Chattanooga will now deliver during the lunch-time hours. The restaurant is in the Miller Brothers Building at 629 Market St.

“We are very excited to offer this service to the hard-working people of downtown Chattanooga,” said owner Josh Patton. “We appreciate the business of so many people who work nearby our restaurant, and hope that this amenity will make it even easier for them to enjoy their favorite Chick.” 

This new service will deliver to guests within a 1/4 mile radius of the restaurant between the hours of 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Monday-Friday. The delivery radius will be evaluated after implementation in hopes to expand the area in the future. A low delivery fee and a $7 order minimum are also required.  

“The easiest way to place an order for this delivery service is through our fax order form, which can be found on our website at,” said Mr. Patton. “Online ordering will soon be available as well.”

Mr. Patton is also anticipating the opening of his second Chattanooga location on Gunbarrel Road later this month.
