Justin and Cassie
The founders of Chicken Salad Chick, Kevin and Stacy 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.

Justin & Cassie Boyd
Justin and Cassie Boyd operate the first Chicken Salad Chick franchise ever awarded. This young couple grew to love the brand as loyal customers and when they found out that franchises were available, they both said, “We have to be a part of this”. After meeting with founders Kevin and Stacy Brown, the Boyds made their pitch and were subsequently awarded the Montgomery, Alabama market, where they had just moved.
“From that day forward, there was no looking back and we were forever a part of Chicken Salad Chick and everything it represents,” Cassie and Justin said.
Their first location, on Zelda Road in Montgomery, opened in October 2012 and the second location, located on Vaughn Road, opened in February 2014.
“Our passion for this brand fills our hearts and we truly believe that it was in God’s plan for us to be a part of the Chick family,” Justin and Cassie Boyd.

“I just had to take the time to write a “real note” to you about my experience at the Montgomery location of Chicken Salad Chick. This was my first time visiting, though I’d heard great things about it. When I arrived I noticed how super clean the restaurant was. Then I was warmly greeted by the staff. It was already very busy even at 11:30am. Even with the constant flow of customers, the staff was impressive. My order was quickly taken by Tianna L. and she could not have been nicer. Each employee greeted everyone with a smile. As I dined with my friend we kept commenting on the steady stream of customers. The line was out the door by noon, yet the employees quickly took orders and kept everything flowing smoothly. Even the girl emptying the trash was happy and cheerful to others. So I just had to let you know that your Montgomery store truly impressed me. I loved the food, but I have to say the very pleasant experience I had there will bring me back.” -Sharon McGhee
