The Chisholm Creek restaurant is owned and operated by Oklahoma multi-unit franchise owner Molly McGill. With nearly 20 years of experience in restaurant management, McGill is an industry veteran and former multi-unit operator of McDonalds and has used her background to quickly make an impact on Chicken Salad Chick. Just two years after spearheading Chicken Salad Chick's entry into the state with her opening in Broken Arrow, McGill has opened four additional locations in Tulsa, Edmond, Nichols Hills and now Chisholm Creek. She's rapidly grown the brand's presence throughout the state and has plans to open three additional Chicken Salad Chick restaurants in Oklahoma over the next couple years.
"If you told me two years ago I would be the sole operator in Oklahoma and about to open my fifth Chicken Salad Chick restaurant, I'm not sure I would have believed it," said McGill. "My journey with the brand has exceeded any and all expectations I had coming in as a franchise owner and the support I've received from the communities I serve has blown me away. I'm thrilled to be opening in Chisholm Creek and excited to see what the future holds."
Chicken Salad Chick is centered in the new Chisolm Creek, which is Oklahoma City's first pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use, live-work-shop-eat-play development that also includes Top Golf, Cabela's, St. Anthony medical center, other upscale casual eateries and an 80-acre park.
