Chicken Salad Chick to Open 1st Restaurant in Oklahoma and 17th in Florida

Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s only southern inspired, fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, recently announced the openings of its newest franchised locations in Pensacola, Florida and Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

Located at 5050 Bayou Boulevard, the Pensacola restaurant opened on September 19th and marked the brand’s third location along the Florida Gulf Coast and 17th location in the state. Owned by veteran franchisees Tommy and Stephanie Lauderdale, the new restaurant features a variety of dining options including a drive-thru, takeout and catering.

“We’ve been eager to open a Chicken Salad Chick in Pensacola and are excited to welcome more residents into our Chick family,” said Stephanie.

Additionally, Chicken Salad Chick celebrated the opening of its first restaurant in Oklahoma. Located in the Tulsa area at 1320 East Hillside Drive in Broken Arrow, the new restaurant opened on September 20th and is owned and operated by first-time Chicken Salad Chick franchisee Molly Robinson. Previously a multi-unit operator of McDonalds, Robinson is an industry veteran with more than 18 years of experience in restaurant management.

“Expanding into a new state is a testament to our aggressive development efforts and widespread brand appeal,” said Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. “Oklahoma’s thriving business community continues to evolve to not only meet the needs for local businesses, but the needs and desires of the surrounding consumers as well. We are thrilled to be opening in Broken Arrow and are excited to welcome new franchise owner Molly Robinson to our team.”
