Ordering Tips in Knoxville

  1. Select Your Preferred Serving Option: Choose between custom platters or boxed lunches! Our platters are perfect for large parties and buffet tables, and our box lunches make the perfect lunch for business meetings or even school field trips.

  2. Select the Right Chicks: When you order custom sandwich trays, choose from your favorite flavor or mix it up with a variety! You can keep it sweet, make it spicy, or stick with traditional. For guests who may want something other than chicken salad, we do create traditional deli meat sandwiches as well!

  3. Stock Up on Sides: Our fresh side salads are the perfect way to round out your meal. Choose from broccoli, pasta, fruit, and grape salads.

  4. Sweeten the Deal: Do not complete your order without choosing from one of our freshly baked cookie trays or scrumptious fresh strawberries with homemade fruit dip.

  5. Refreshing Drinks: Complete your order by choosing from gallons of sweet tea, unsweet tea, lemonade, or bottled water.

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.

Josh Patton considers himself both a longtime and very loyal fan of Chicken Salad Chick.

“I was one of Stacy Brown’s first customers at the original location and I began coming into the store sometimes twice a day during my senior year of college at Auburn University,” Josh states.

After graduating Josh worked in computer software sales. A few years later, on a football weekend in Auburn, Josh found out there were Chicken Salad Chick franchises for sale and quickly set up a meeting to talk about opening up markets in Tennessee.

The details were worked out and Josh Patton opened his first location in Chattanooga in early 2014 and is now working on additional restaurant locations.

“This truly is a simple concept that provides a superb experience,” Josh says.
