Shane and Haley Pinder of Coastal Chicks, LLC are experienced team leaders, with Shane previously serving as a Division 1 collegiate head volleyball coach and Haley responsible for overseeing an online university’s academic group focused on student retention. The Pinder’s servant leadership styles attracted them to Chicken Salad Chick, as they closely identified with the brand’s mission of spreading joy, enriching lives and serving others. The husband-and-wife duo left behind their 20-year home in Virginia to make a life in Wilmington with their two children and are thrilled to be opening a Chick in their new city.
“We’ve lived in Wilmington for a little over a year and one thing we’ve quickly learned is that the residents love chicken salad,” said Haley Pinder. “Savory, sweet or spicy, the city loves them all and we’re thrilled to fuel that obsession with Chicken Salad Chick’s made-from-scratch flavors. Whether guests stop by for a lunch with friends or grab our Quick Chicks to use for family dinners, kids lunches or beach picnics, we know Chicken Salad Chick is going to become a quick favorite for Wilmington residents.”
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 by founder, Stacy Brown. With more than a dozen original chicken salad flavors as well as fresh side salads, gourmet soups, signature sandwiches and delicious desserts, Chicken Salad Chick's robust menu offers a variety of options suitable for any guest.
