Southern fast-casual restaurant concept to open first on-campus location at Auburn University
Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s newest fast-casual restaurant concept, has opened their newest location on the campus of Auburn University.
The restaurant is located in a new addition to Foy Hall and is a full restaurant with a dining room and patio. The on-campus menu will differ slightly, offering fewer varieties of chicken salad but more convenient options for on-the-go guests. Hours of operation for the restaurant are Monday-Friday, 10am to 5pm.
“The University and its students have expressed a desire for expanded options in their campus dining, and Chicken Salad Chick will certainly bring a new variety to campus,” said President Kevin Brown. “We are so grateful for the loyalty of Auburn students and faculty, and look forward to offering them this convenient campus location.”
Born In Alabama – The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in Auburn, AL 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. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant which quickly grew to enormous demand and additional locations. Chicken Salad Chick has sold 100 franchises to be developed across the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North & South Carolina, Tennessee and Texas, and has plans to expand nationally in the coming years.
“As an Auburn graduate, I am thrilled to bring the Chicken Salad Chick experience to campus,” stated Founder Stacy. “This community has played such a tremendous part in helping grow our story and brand, and we could not be more exited to better serve Auburn University in this way!”
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. There are currently 30 Chicken Salad Chick locations throughout the Southeast. Corporate offices are located at 724 North Dean Road in Auburn, Alabama.
