Chicken Salad Chick late last week announced plans to open the fast-casual chicken salad concept in Vinings.
The new location, in The Station at Vinings shopping center, joins Chicken Salad Chick outposts planned for Cumming and Evans Georgia.
Origin Development Group, an Atlanta-based restaurant development fund founded by Lauren Fernandez and Darren DeVore, is behind the new restaurants.
Slated to open by April 2018, the new Chicken Salad Chick stores follow the opening of Origin’s Buckhead location, and mark ten Chicken Salad Chick restaurants owned and operated by the fund in Georgia.
“With our seven locations already in the Atlanta area, Athens and Augusta, we have been working toward the goal of further expansion for a while now,” DeVore said in a press release announcing the new stores.
“The outpouring of enthusiasm we have seen for these new locations is a tribute to why we eagerly continue to serve such a loyal fan base with deliciously fresh food and genuine Southern hospitality.”
Chicken Salad Chick offers a “Southern twist” to from-scratch fare with over a dozen chicken salad flavors, each with a real-life namesake and backstory.
Also on the menu featuring are soups, salads and side dishes, including a grape salad topped with brown sugar and crushed pecans.
The Evans outpost will open first on January 23, followed by Vinings and Cumming.
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown, and now includes 81 corporate and franchise stores.
