How do you take your chicken salad?
Whether you like it with pineapples and nuts or bacon and cheddar, chances are you’ll find it made your way at a new restaurant opening in Lexington next month.
Chicken Salad Chick will open in the Lexington Pavilion at 5135 Sunset Blvd. in Lexington on Oct. 22.
The Auburn, Ala.-based restaurant serves 15 different varieties – from mild to spicy, fancy to fruity – by the pound or on a sandwich or bed of lettuce. The lunch and early dinner restaurant serves several other sandwiches, soups and a variety of sides. It also offers catering.
The fast-casual restaurant is making its move into South Carolina, having opened a store in Greenville about a month ago. The chain also plans a location in Charleston, according to its website.
Overall, franchisees Julie Beville and Michelle Singleton of SingBev Hospitality plan to bring 20 of the restaurants to the state. The chain has nine restaurants and is expanding in several states from Florida to Tennessee.
“We are so excited to add this new location to the growing Chicken Salad Chick community throughout the Southeast,” Kevin Brown, president of the restaurant chain, said in a statement. “This convenient location, along with our other stores opening in the next few months, represent a very exciting time in the young life of our company.”
