Chicken Salad Chick's new restaurant in Matthews is owned and operated by multi-unit franchise owners Jennifer and Mark Dennis of 3 Dennis Chicks, LLC. Well-versed in franchising, the husband-and-wife duo also own a premier early education and child care concept, Primrose School at Austin Village, and are thrilled to be diversifying their portfolio into the fast-casual foodservice industry.
"My husband and I have called Charlotte home for more than two decades and over the years, we've watched the culinary scene grow tremendously. After tasting Chicken Salad Chick for the first time last year, we knew the restaurant would be the perfect addition to our city's dining options," said Jennifer Dennis. "Chicken Salad Chick's menu options not only provide the perfect taste of the South served with genuine Southern hospitality and charm, but also a variety of lighter offerings that you can't always get at fast causal concepts. We are proud to be opening in Matthews and look forward to serving our community for years to come."
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.
