Chicken Salad Chick Named a Top 50 Franchise for Women by Franchise Business Review

Independent Survey Shows Female Franchise Owners Are Highly Satisfied with Chicken Salad Chick’s Performance

May 12, 2023 // // ATLANTA - Chicken Salad Chick was identified by Franchise Business Review as being one of only 50 franchises to qualify as a 2023 Top Franchise for Women.

Chicken Salad Chick was founded by Stacy Brown, a mother to three children. Her mission is to spread joy, enrich lives, and serve others, and that is what the brand has embodied since her founding, now under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney. 

In their first year as franchisees, this team was named the recipient of the Chicken Salad Chick’s Franchisee of the Year Award. Fast forward to 2022, and they become the first franchisee to win the award twice in brand history. Julie and the ownership group is entering a high-growth period while the existing stores continue to achieve strong performance – breaking best-day records more than five times in 2022. As a powerhouse woman entrepreneur, Julie Beville has become a standout ambassador representing Chicken Salad Chick by leaning into brand values.

Chicken Salad Chick was among  franchise brands, representing over female franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research on the Top Franchises for Women. Chicken Salad Chick franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including leadership, training & support, financial opportunity, and work/life balance.

“Franchising is a terrific option for women seeking business ownership on a full- or part-time basis,” said Michelle Rowan, president and COO of Franchise Business Review.“There are thousands of different franchise opportunities available, so before making the decision to invest in a particular franchise, it’s important to research feedback from current female franchise owners on how well the franchise meets their expectations in terms of support, work/life balance, financial opportunity, culture, and other key areas of business ownership. When you look at the brands on this year’s list of the Top Franchises for Women, 87% of women said they enjoy owning and operating the business, making them all excellent options for women looking to make the transition to business ownership.”

Notably, Chicken Salad Chick’s survey data showed that 98% of franchisees rated long-term growth opportunity of the business as moderate, strong, or very strong – 4% higher than the food segment average. Additionally, over 90% said they would recommend the franchise to others.

“At Chicken Salad Chick, we pride ourselves on being an inclusive brand and that is all thanks to our founder,” said Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. “Stacy Brown set the standard and we have worked hard to uphold it throughout the years. We incorporate many family values in guiding our business model to make sure all of our franchisees are able to spend quality time with their family and feel supported. We are honored to be named Top Franchises for Women and hope to inspire others in the industry.”
