About Chicken Salad Chick

Spread Joy. Enrich Lives. Serve Others.

What started as a small takeout restaurant in 2008 has quickly grown throughout the Southeast. Chicken Salad Chick stands as the only Southern-inspired, fast-casual chicken salad restaurant concept in the country. Kevin and Stacy, our founders, instilled a strong culture of genuine Southern Hospitality that is felt and shared among franchise owners today.

When it comes to our food philosophy, we believe that good food brings people together, nourishes their souls, and keeps them coming back for more.

What Sets Us Apart

Uniquely positioned in the fast-casual space, The Chick is the only restaurant concept that specializes in fresh, house-made chicken salad. We bring this one-of-a-kind experience to life in our welcoming neighborhood restaurants by using top-quality ingredients and specializing in a wide variety of desserts, sandwiches, soups, and – of course – chicken salad that’s scratch-prepared daily.

The Chick’s Success in Numbers

Approximately 80% of Chicken Salad Chick locations are franchised, with the remaining 20% being company-owned. Our salad restaurant franchise owners are carefully selected, ensuring that we maintain the Chick culture to the highest degree. Our brand was recently ranked number 37 on the list of fastest-growing, privately held companies by Inc. 5000.

Under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney, along with Eagle Merchant Group and Chairman of the Board, Russ Umphenour, franchising has taken off in a major way. Chicken Salad Chick boasts 100+ restaurants across 10 states and continues to grow at a rapid rate. We are proud to offer craveable, scratch-prepared meals served from the heart to guests throughout the South, and are on our way to becoming America’s favorite place for chicken salad.
