Chicken Salad Chick Named Top Chicken Salad To Try By Cooking With Paula Deen

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

The latest edition of Cooking with Paula Deen magazine, which hits stands on Tuesday, names Chicken Salad Chick as the top spot in the country to try chicken salad. This section, entitled “Ten to Try”, features a different delicacy in each issue and highlights their ten favorite spots to find that particular food. The March/April issue presents Chicken Salad Chick as the first place to try chicken salad, highlighting the concept’s humble beginnings as well as their multiple locations and variety of flavors.

“We are extremely honored to be featured in such an esteemed publication,” said founder Stacy Brown. “Our team strives to provide a true chicken salad experience to each of our guests, and we hope that this recognition will allow us to serve new guests in our growing number of restaurants across the Southeast!”

The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in Auburn, Al., in 2008 in the kitchen of founder Stacy Brown. Ms. Brown 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. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant which quickly grew to enormous demand and additional locations. Chicken Salad Chick has sold over 100 franchises to be developed across the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North & South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, and has plans to expand nationally in the coming years.

Chicken Salad Chick puts an edgy twist on a southern classic, offering guests 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. There are currently 30 Chicken Salad Chick locations throughout the Southeast.
