"Chicken Salad Chick is a restaurant unlike any other and in a sea of burger joints and fast food restaurants, the brand's innovative menu items and flavorful creations are sure to be a hit in Fayetteville. I'm thrilled to finally be joining the two things I love most, Fayetteville and The Chick, and can't wait to open my doors!"
