Fast casual concept to open on December 16 and offer free chicken salad for a year
Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s only Southern inspired, fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, announced today it will be expanding in Louisiana with its newest restaurant in Bossier City. Following the opening in Ruston in October, the Bossier City location marks the tenth restaurant in the state and second location in the greater Shreveport area. The Bossier City restaurant, which is located at 3107 Airline Drive, will celebrate its grand opening on December 16 and will offer free chicken salad for a year to the first 100 guests. Those awarded will be properly distanced and will receive a designated return time upon arrival to spread out the number of guests at the restaurant throughout the day.
Chicken Salad Chick is closely following Louisiana’s state and local guidelines for COVID-19 procedures and will open the Bossier City restaurant with social distancing measures in place. All employees will be wearing masks and gloves, as well as practicing proper handwashing and food safety protocol, and all guests will be required to wear masks until seated for dining. There will be plexiglass at the service counter in between team members and guests, and for added convenience, the Bossier City restaurant will have a pick-up window for guests who choose online ordering and call ahead ordering only.
During grand opening week, guests will experience the Southern hospitality that Chicken Salad Chick is known for, with giveaways and specials that include:
- Wednesday, December 16 – Free Chicken Salad for a Year – The first 100 guests will receive one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per month for an entire year, with one of those lucky guests randomly selected to win one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per week.* Guests can arrive starting at 7am for grand opening day only. Any guest not part of the first 100 in line can make an in-store purchase and enter for a chance to win free chicken salad for a year.**
- Thursday, December 17 – The first 100 guests to purchase a Chick Special will receive a free Chick Special redeemable on the next visit.
- Friday, December 18 – The first 100 guests to purchase a Chick Trio will receive a free Chick tumbler.

The Bossier City restaurant is owned and operated by multi-unit franchise owners Ray Pynes and Lacy Galligan of Sami R. Investments. The brother-and-sister team have more than ten years of restaurant experience, operating an Another Broken Egg Cafe in Shreveport before joining the Chicken Salad Chick family. Pynes and Galligan were first introduced to the brand in 2016 and were instant fans of the made-from-scratch menu items and impeccable service. They opened their first Chicken Salad Chick location in Shreveport three years ago and following the Bossier City opening, have plans to open additional restaurants in Longview and Texarkana, Texas in the future.
“For the past three years, my brother and I have had the absolute pleasure of serving the Shreveport community. Walking into work each day has been such a blessing, as you can clearly see how special Chicken Salad Chick is to the residents here,” said Lacy Galligan. “Opening our new restaurant in Bossier City during the holiday season couldn’t be more perfect timing. Chicken Salad Chick is all about enriching lives and serving others and that’s exactly the type of comradery we feel this time of year. We can’t wait to open our doors!”
