Chicken Salad Chick Multi-Unit Operator Opening Knoxville Location
The newest location in Josh Patton’s Chicken Salad Chick portfolio will be in Knoxville, Tennessee when he opens the doors of his latest location next week.
Patton has been a franchisee with the brand since opening his first unit back in 2014 in Chattanooga. Since then, he’s opened additional locations in Chattanooga and Knoxville, with plans to open another three restaurants in those markets.
The Tennessee native recalls becoming a fan of the Chicken Salad Chick brand at the original Auburn location back in 2008. He was a college senior and frequent visitor, sometimes even making two trips to Chicken Salad Chick in one day.
“When I first walked into the original Chicken Salad Chick restaurant 10 years ago, I knew I stumbled into something special,” said Patton. “Founder Stacy Brown used to joke with me about eating there so often, but I couldn’t get enough of the high-quality food and southern charm. My passion for the brand led me to open my own locations and I’m grateful for the opportunity to introduce the concept to residents in Knoxville.”
Chicken Salad Chick serves Southern-style chicken salad made from scratch. It offers more than a dozen original chicken salad flavors as well as fresh side salads, gourmet soups, sandwiches, and desserts. The brand has more than 85 restaurants in 9 states and is continuing its expansion with both franchise and company locations.
