Retailer Chicken Salad Chick to Move Headquarters to Atlanta

Southern-inspired, fast-casual chicken salad restaurant concept Chicken Salad Chick has announced plans to relocate its headquarters from Auburn, AL to Atlanta. The move is slated to take place during the first quarter of 2021.

The retailer’s new headquarters will be located in Vinings at the Overlook II building across from its Vinings restaurant. The headquarters will house the leadership team of approximately 40 new and current employees. Chicken Salad Chick expects 17 Auburn-based corporate employees to transition to the new headquarters in metro-Atlanta. The remaining 20 positions will be filled by local talent. Chicken Salad Chick was founded in Auburn by Stacy Brown and her late husband Kevin Brown in 2008.

“Atlanta has always fostered a nurturing business environment for companies to kickstart their growth,” said Scott Deviney, President and CEO at Chicken Salad Chick. “This relocation positions Chicken Salad Chick to scale at an accelerated rate and meet aggressive growth goals, while allowing us to broaden our vision for the future. We’ve seen increased interest from Atlanta’s diverse and talented workforce, and the city’s airport allows us swift access to prospective vendors and a growing pool of interested franchisees.”
