September 29, 2017 // Franchising.com // AUBURN, Ala. - Chicken Salad Chick, the nation's only southern inspired, fast casual restaurant concept, announced today it will be expanding in Louisiana with its first location in Denham Springs. The new restaurant will open October 4 at 27306 Crossing Circle, Suite 270, marking the state's fifth location. The Denham Springs restaurant is owned and operated by multi-unit franchisee Beau Nicolosi, who pioneered Chicken Salad Chick's expansion into Louisiana by opening the brand's first location in Lafayette last year.
During grand opening week, guests will enjoy southern hospitality through giveaway and specials at the new Chicken Salad Chick restaurant:
Beau Nicolosi discovered the Chicken Salad Chick concept three years ago while on vacation in Destin, Fla. and immediately realized the potential of the unique brand. A lifetime resident of Lafayette, Beau Nicolosi partnered with his father, Pete Nicolosi, to bring the restaurant into the state of Louisiana.
"Chicken Salad Chick's high-quality food piqued my interest from the start, but once I opened my first restaurant, I realized the concept is about more than food, it's about creating an experience," said Beau Nicolosi, Chicken Salad Chick franchisee. "Relationships are made, memories are formed and it's all surrounded by the home-cooked, southern feel that is Chicken Salad Chick. I am proud to bring this unique culinary experience to more guests throughout Louisiana."
The Chicken Salad Chick concept, born in Auburn, Ala., was established in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. When Stacy discovered that the local county health department would not allow her to continue making and selling her delicious recipes out of her home kitchen, she overcame that obstacle by launching her first restaurant with the business expertise of her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant, which quickly grew; the company now has more than 70 restaurants across the Southeast.
