Chicken Salad Chick will celebrate its one-year anniversary in Owensboro on Sept. 1. The national chain is home to “America’s favorite” chicken salad recipes made fresh in-house daily.
The franchise is locally owned by Hannah Witherspoon, who attributes much of the restaurant’s success to the many dedicated customers and the Owensboro community.
“We have felt right at home in Owensboro. We have met so many friendly people and made many new friends that have welcomed us to the community with open arms,” Witherspoon said. “We are thankful for our guests that took a chance on a new and very different concept.”
The restaurant boasts 14 original flavors that range from traditional, sweet, and nutty, to savory and spicy. Their menu also features fresh-made sides, pimento cheese, egg salad, gourmet soups, and “delicious” desserts.
They most recently added a new flavor, “Jazzy Julie,” to their menu. Infused with cayenne and red pepper and incorporated with cheese and bacon, it takes the crown for the spiciest flavor yet.
Witherspoon also praised her dedicated employees who have maintained a positive, can-do attitude — even during a pandemic.
“Our amazing team is the secret behind the success of our business,” she said. “Our guests know that when they walk in, they will not only have delicious food but friendly and familiar faces.”
Witherspoon said that opening and operating during the pandemic presented many challenges such as lack of staffing and limited materials such as paper products.
“One thing we have learned in the restaurant business: you have to adapt and overcome,” she said. “Where there is a will, there is a way, and we have a great core team that gets the job done.”
Chicken Salad Chick also specializes in catering, with even more flavor options available than their traditional menu. To inquire or place a catering order, call the store at 270-713-0292 and ask to speak with a manager.
