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.

“I remember the very first time I ever tried Chicken Salad Chick. I had no idea how my life would change,” Panama City Beach franchisee Stephanie Lauderdale says.

Becoming immediately and completely hooked on the product, it wasn’t long until she had introduced all her friends near Santa Rosa Beach, Florida to Chicken Salad Chick. Her sister and supplier, Tiffany Dubberley, just happens to own the franchise in Columbus, Georgia  and suggested that Stephanie open her own near Panama City Beach.

“What a great idea,” Stephanie said.

Stephanie and her husband Tom, signed a franchise agreement. Soon, she and Tom were looking for locations to open their first restaurant and found that Pier Park in Panama City Beach was the perfect choice. They opened their restaurant in February 2014.

“It is our joy to spread the love we put in each and every bite. We truly love serving people.” Stephanie says.
