Chicken Salad Chick has its eye on Texas.
The southern-inspired, fast-casual chicken salad eatery is expanding in Texas, opening a location on June 3 in Katy Cinco Ranch. It’s the brand's 16th location in the state and fourth Texas opening in 2020.
Chicken Salad Chick, a 2020 winner of Chain Store Age’s Breakout Retailers Awards, has plans to open additional Houston area restaurants, including Birnham Woods in Spring, Texas, later this year.
As Texas continues to reopen, Chicken Salad Chick is closely following state guidelines and will open the Katy Cinco Ranch restaurant at limited capacity with social distancing measures in place. Additionally, all employees will be wearing masks and gloves, as well as practicing proper handwashing and food safety protocol. The new eatery also features a drive-thru.
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was founded in 2008 by Stacy Brown. The menu includes than a dozen original chicken salad flavors as well as fresh side salads, soups, desserts and other items. The company now has more than 155 restaurants currently open in 16 states and is continuing its rapid expansion with both franchise and company locations.
