Columbia, South Carolina (PRWEB) October 22, 2013
Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s newest, fast-casual restaurant concept, is scheduled to open its new franchise location in Columbia, SC today (Tuesday), October 22, 2013. The new restaurant will be located in the Lexington Pavilion at 5135 Sunset Blvd. Suite A, Lexington, SC 29072.
“We are so excited to add this new location to the growing Chicken Salad Chick community throughout the Southeast,” said Kevin Brown, president of Chicken Salad Chick. “It has been such a blessing to have franchisees join in sharing the Chicken Salad Chick experience with their own communities.”
Current owners Julie Beville and Michelle Singleton of SingBev Hospitality, LLC wanted to bring a restaurant to Columbia following on the heels of their successful franchise launch in Greenville, SC in August 2013.
“Opening another location in South Carolina is very exciting for us, as this is the 2nd of 20+ locations we’ll be bringing to the Carolinas,” said owners Julie and Michelle. “"The excitement from our fans in the area is wonderful and we're so happy to open our doors to them today!"
Born In Alabama -- The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in Auburn, Ala., in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. Stacy quickly learned that selling a homemade recipe from her kitchen is against the law, and after being shut down by the health department, she decided to solicit the business expertise of her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant which quickly grew to enormous demand and additional locations. The unique concept offers customers a “custom-fit” chicken salad experience, with 15 original flavors to choose from, as well as gourmet soups, flavorful side salads and freshly-baked desserts. Chicken Salad Chick has sold 63 franchises to be developed across the states of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, North Carolina and South Carolina, and has plans to expand nationally in the coming years.
“Kevin and I have been overwhelmed with the desire for people find a home for Chicken Salad Chick in their own communities,” said Chicken Salad Chick Founder Stacy Brown. “It is so encouraging that our own customers want to share our concept and passion with those in their area.”
