Fast-Casual Restaurant Concept Focuses on Sweet and Savory Flavors to Entice Guests
Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s only southern inspired, fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, launched its fall menu yesterday featuring brand new menu items, such as the Cranberry Apple Salad and Chicken Tortilla Soup, and guest favorites returning for another year including the Holiday Pimento Cheeseball and Pumpkin Cheesecake. Additionally, restaurants will be featuring a special promotional trio appropriately named Stacy’s Perfect Plate. Stacy’s Perfect Plate features one scoop each of Cranberry Kelli chicken salad and Pimento Cheese alongside Chicken Salad Chick’s signature Broccoli Salad.
“I chose the sweet and savory flavor combination in Stacy’s Perfect Plate because each bite complements the next, and they are a perfect fall trio,” said Stacy Brown, Chicken Salad Chick founder. “All of our new fall menu items are too delicious to be missed, and we are especially excited for the return of our Pumpkin Cheesecake, which had our guests raving last year.”
The fall menu items are designed to appeal to guests who crave fresh, seasonal items like apples, cranberry and pumpkin during the fall season. The Cranberry Apple Salad features mixed greens, dried sweetened cranberries, Fuji apples, feta cheese, chow mein noodles and poppy seed dressing; the holiday Pimento Cheeseball showcases Chicken Salad Chick’s homemade pimento cheese coated in crushed pecans and crispy bacon; and the Chicken Tortilla Soup features roasted corn, diced tomatoes, Monterey Jack cheese, jalapeno peppers, tortilla strips and sour cream.
The Holiday Pimento Cheeseball and Pumpkin Cheesecake also make excellent additions for all types of events. Whether tailgating for a football game or hosting a Thanksgiving luncheon at work, the cheeseball and cheesecake are delicious options that fit the flavor of the season.

The Chicken Salad Chick concept, born in Auburn, Alabama, was established in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. When Stacy discovered that the local county health department would not allow her to continue making and selling her delicious recipes out of her home kitchen, she overcame that obstacle by launching her first restaurant with the business expertise of her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant, which quickly grew; the company now has 41 restaurants across the Southeast.
Chicken Salad Chick puts an edgy twist on a Southern classic, offering guests 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. Today, the brand has 41 locations across the Southeast, and has currently sold 141 franchises to be developed across the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North and South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas. The brand was recently named as the top chicken salad in the country to try in the March/April issue of Cooking with Paula Deen, as well as one of FastCasual.com’s top Movers and Shakers and as one of NRN’s 2015 Breakout Brands. Corporate offices are located at 724 North Dean Road in Auburn, Alabama. See www.chickensaladchick.com for additional information.
