Adam Reeves & Carol Lynn Upshaw


The founders of Chicken Salad Chick, Stacy and Kevin Brown, feel the most important character trait necessary to be able to run a successful “Chick” is to have a servant’s heart. Each franchise owner has been carefully selected and proven to be passionate about serving people. “Our Story” was written by Stacy when the very first Chicken Salad Chick opened and we thought it would be fun to share the stories of how our owners became involved.

Adam Reeves grew up in Eufaula, Alabama with one of his best friends being Kevin Brown, founder of Chicken Salad Chick.  They ate chicken salad every afternoon after football practice...and now 25 years later, they are still the best of friends and involved in this incredible brand...Chick Salad Chick!

Adam spent 16 years in the investment business before deciding to take on a new challenge and be a part of this great concept that Kevin and Stacy have created.  Adam and his wife Lauren, introduced Chicken Salad Chick to her parents, Bert and Carol Lynn Upshaw, and they decided to make this a "family affair" and become franchise owners with the first location in Orlando, Florida.  They have extended the "family affair" and hired Carol Lynn's nephew, Quin Watson as their Operations Manager.
