May 20, 2019

Chicken Salad Chick — a southern-inspired, fast-casual chicken salad restaurant concept — has announced it is expanding in Texas with its newest restaurant in Katy.

Marking the brand’s fifth opening in Texas this year and fourth in the Houston market, the Katy restaurant emphasizes Chicken Salad Chick’s aggressive development efforts in the state, with plans to open additional restaurants in College Station and Kingwood later this year.

Located at 21788 Katy Freeway, the new restaurant will celebrate its grand opening on Wednesday, May 29, and will be offering free chicken salad for a year to the first 150 guests. The Katy location will feature a variety of dining options including a drive-thru, takeout and catering to accommodate guests’ busy lifestyles.

During grand opening week, guests will experience Chicken Salad Chick southern hospitality with giveaways and specials that include:

Wednesday, May 29 - Free Chicken Salad for a Year - The first 10 guests will receive one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per week for an entire year; the next 140 guests receive a free large Quick Chick of chicken salad per month. Any guest not part of the first 150 line can enter to win free chicken salad for a year.

Thursday, May 30 - The first 50 guests at 10:30a.m. and the first 50 guests at 6p.m. to purchase a Chick Special will get an opportunity to “Meet the Chicks” over the next 12 months and will receive 1 free scoop of a different flavor per month.

Friday, May 31 - The first 100 guests to purchase a Chick Trio will receive a free 32 ounce Chick Tumbler. All guests can enjoy double points on purchases.

Saturday, June 1 - The first 50 guests to buy two large Quick Chicks will receive a free Chick Cooler. All guests can enjoy double points on purchases.

The Katy restaurant is owned and operated by multi-unit franchise owners Ronald and Kathleen Ram of Houston CSC, LLC. With more than 15 years of experience in the industry, the Rams have a successful track record for managing foodservice franchises. They currently own 10 Pizza Patrons across Texas and have plans to open five additional Chicken Salad Chick restaurants over the next few years.

“Kathleen and I tried Chicken Salad Chick for the first time in Auburn and instantly became huge fans of the brand,” said Ronald. “With delicious homemade chicken salad flavors, a welcome atmosphere and passionate team, we knew this unique concept would be a perfect fit in our hometown of Katy. We are thrilled to be introducing Chicken Salad Chick to our family and friends and know they’ll love it just as much as we do.”

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 desserts, Chicken Salad Chick’s menu offers a variety of options suitable for any guest. In 2015, Eagle Merchant Partners purchased a majority stake in Chicken Salad Chick, and under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and team, the company now has 119 restaurants currently open in 13 states.

Chicken Salad Chick in Katy will be open 10:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Saturday. For more information, visit www.chickensaladchick.com/katy or call (281) 771-0614. For more information on giveaways and specials, visit www.facebook.com/chickensaladchickkaty.
