Since the launch, Robinson has opened a location in Tulsa, is preparing to open in Edmond and has plans to expand to Oklahoma City early next year.
“It’s been a little over a year since I officially became a Chicken Salad Chick franchise owner and I’m about to open my third restaurant in Oklahoma, which is truly incredible,” said Molly Robinson. “Each new opening sparks a new group of chicken salad fanatics and they’ve been eager to share their positive experiences and genuine love for the brand with friends and family across the state. I’m thrilled to be opening in Edmond and can’t wait to show the community what Chicken Salad Chick is all about.”
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 by founder, Stacy Brown. 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 offers a variety of options suitable for any guest. In 2015, Eagle Merchant Partners purchased a majority stake in Chicken Salad Chick, and under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and team, the company now has more than 135 restaurants currently open in 16 states and remains a standout brand within the fast casual segment.
