Seriously, an entire restaurant devoted to chicken salad — this is a dream restaurant for me. I ALWAYS order chicken salad at an appropriate restaurant and was so excited to learn that the first Chicken Salad Chick is open in Marietta and now in January 2015 add Alpharetta, Kennesaw, and one coming to Roswell in spring of 2015. The Roswell location will be next to Zoes Kitchen in the Target Plaza off of Hwy 92 and Hardscrabble Road.
The Marietta store opened in March and is owned by franchisees who are all related to the founder Stacy Brown. Their names are featured in three of the 15 flavors of Chicken Salad on the menu, making this a distinct chain.
Founder Stacy Brown was on a quest to find the perfect chicken salad, and through tastings by family and friends, she perfected the base and then tweaked the different varieties for everyone’s palate.
On a recent visit to Destin, FL I had a chance to try this restaurant, and I was overwhelmed with joy about the selection of chicken salad. I opted for the original: Classic Carol. My friends tried Dixie Chick (which is for the onion lover) and Fruit Fran (which has apples and grapes).
We all were pleased with our selections and promised to be adventurous next time since they have so many unique choices, like Jazzy Julie, a spicy mixture of cayenne pepper, bacon and shredded cheddar cheese.
Stacy’s original location began in Auburn, AL. This is the first store around Atlanta, and it’s OTP! We also have trusted scoop that a different franchise group has the rights to 12 more OTP stores to be built by PDP Ventures in the next two years. As soon as we get those locations, we will share the details!
The Marietta restaurant is located in Providence Square at 4101 Roswell Rd, Suite 811 and PDP has opened The Alpharetta restaurant in the Stonewalk at North Point Shopping Centre, 970 North Point Drive in Alpharetta and the Kennesaw location at 425 Earnest Barrett Parkway. Coming this spring next to Zoe’s Kitchen in Roswell in the Target Shopping Center on Hwy 92 and Hardscrabble is the newest one to open.
