Founder “Stacy’s Chicken Salad Chick” Grand Opening in Rome

The new Chicken Salad Chick opening in Rome on 8/27 is officially “Stacy’s Chicken Salad Chick”  and will be known as “the founder’s restaurant,” and will be unlike any other Chicken Salad Chick location.

The new restaurant, which will also feature a drive-thru, will open at 800 Martha Berry Boulevard. Brown is originally from Rome and went to Darlington High School and many of her chicken salads are named after Rome residents.

Today, the privately held chain has grown to 109 locations in 12 states, with more than 20 in Georgia. According to Tomorrow’s News Today, collectively only about a third of the company’s restaurants feature a drive-thru and less than 10% are freestanding, making the Rome restaurant special.   Among the 2,863 square foot restaurant’s unique features are a 40′ by 40′ outdoor courtyard with seating, a fireplace, throw pillows and other elements foreign in basically all other quick-serve restaurants.


There will be many other plantings around the property including creeping fig and jasmine that will help to create the sense of being in a botanical garden.


Did you know that…
“Sassy Scotty” is named for Stacy’s best friend since kindergarten, “Cranberry Kelli” is named for Stacy’s sister-in-law, and “Nutty Nanna” is named for Stacy’s mother Cheryl Melton, all of whom are current Rome residents.  The “Fruity Fran” was named for Stacy’s aunt who recently passed but who also lived in Rome.

Stacy’s late husband and restaurant co-founder Kevin who passed away in late 2015 after fighting stage 4 colon cancer.  His passing gave direction to the “Chicken Salad Chick Foundation,” which has made multiple sizable donations to various cancer centers as well as the American Cancer Society.

Brown will continue to live in Auburn, but Rome is close enough for her to visit often!
