Chicken Salad Chick is coming to Leland

Chicken Salad Chick open in Trussville!

WILMINGTON, N.C. (CAPE FEAR WEEKEND) -

A fast-casual chicken salad franchise that serves its salad by the scoop and sandwich-full is opening a location in Leland.

The popular franchise has over 200 locations in the South and another one will be opening in Old Waterford come December or January.

The owners of the Wilmington location are hoping to open a second location at 503 Olde Waterford Way, Suite 104. This location will be smaller, but will offer a drive-thru window which we are thrilled about.

Chicken Salad Chick, which started in 2008 when founder Stacy Brown started selling homemade chicken salad door-to-door in Auburn, Alabama, will expand into Brunswick County with the opening of the new location. Brown parlayed her door-to-door sales into a brick-and-mortar restaurant, and Chicken Salad Chick has since grown to include 200 locations across the U.S.

Chicken Salad Chick serves up various chicken salad flavors from its classic and Southern varieties to fruity, nutty, sweet and spicy options. It also offers pimento cheese, egg salad, soups and sides.
