“When I first experienced Chicken Salad Chick as a guest and discovered their motto ‘spread joy, enrich lives, serve others,’ I knew the restaurant was closely aligned with my goals and what I value in a brand,” says Melissa Holt. “I’ve always craved to open a successful business with roots within the communities it serves and continually gives back to, and we will be doing just that. From our friends and family event ahead of opening day to ongoing charitable partnership support, we look forward to offering not only a delicious menu to guests, but an extended support system to our community.”
