AUBURN, Ala., March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Chicken Salad Chick, the nation's only southern inspired, fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, announced today it will be expanding in Oklahoma with its newest location in Tulsa.

Spearheading Chicken Salad Chick's expansion in Oklahoma is multi-unit franchise-owner Molly Robinson. Previously a multi-unit operator of McDonalds, Robinson is an industry veteran with more than 18 years of experience in restaurant management. Impressed by Chicken Salad Chick's core values and devoted support team, she decided to leave quick service and open the brand's first Oklahoma restaurant in Broken Arrow. Following the opening of her Tulsa restaurant, Robinson expects to open in Edmond and Oklahoma City later this year, along with plans for additional Oklahoma locations over the next few years.
"Introducing Chicken Salad Chick in Oklahoma has been such a rewarding experience," said Robinson. "I've had the opportunity to witness new customers try our made-from-scratch recipes for the first time and welcome back regulars who have made Chicken Salad Chick their go-to family lunch spot. The joy that our food and genuine hospitality brings to any guest who dines at Chicken Salad Chick was my motivation to expand. I'm proud to be opening a restaurant in The Shops at Warren Place and am excited to bring our unique experience to the Tulsa community."
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 by founder, Stacy Brown.
