Located at 3520 West University Drive, the McKinney restaurant marks the brand’s fourth in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and third opening in Texas this year, following Chicken Salad Chick’s debut in Irving and College Park last month.

The McKinney location will be owned and operated by multi-unit franchisee Luis Ibarguengoytia of Metroplex CSC LLC, as a part of a 15-unit deal to bring Chicken Salad Chick restaurants to additional cities throughout DFW, including Arlington and Mansfield. A restaurant industry veteran and multi-brand operator, Ibarguengoytia has two decades of experience directing restaurant operations and owns a variety of concepts including, Bruegger’s Bagels, Cru Wine Bar and Panda Express. Following the debut in McKinney, Ibarguengoytia plans to open new restaurants in Mansfield and Arlington later this year.

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.
