Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s only fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, recently opened its new location in Wellington. Closely following the owners’ Gainesville opening this past May, the Wellington location marks the 30th Chicken Salad Chick restaurant in the state. Located at 12792 W. Forest Hill Blvd., the restaurant celebrated its grand opening Wednesday, Sept. 29 by offering free chicken salad for a year to the first 100 guests.
Kevin Royal of KBR Corporation opened his first Chicken Salad Chick in Gainesville in May and is now spreading his love of chicken salad down the Florida coast to Wellington, alongside his brother and franchise partner Bryan Royal. During their first visit to a Chicken Salad Chick, the duo was instantly drawn to the simple concept and welcoming experience, and they knew South Florida would be the perfect place to expand the brand.
“Dining at Chicken Salad Chick is like dining at the home of a gracious friend, and we are so excited to bring that comfort and warmth to the Wellington community,” Kevin Royal said. “My family and I believe Floridians will love our made-from-scratch, full-flavored, Southern-style chicken salad, and we look forward to growing the brand in the South Florida region.”
With more than a dozen original chicken salad flavors as well as fresh side salads, gourmet soups, signature sandwiches and delicious desserts, Chicken Salad Chick’s robust menu is a perfect fit for any guest. Founded in Auburn, Alabama, by Stacy and Kevin Brown in 2008, Chicken Salad Chick has grown to more than 200 restaurants in 17 states.
