Chicken Salad Chick opened its first Louisville restaurant yesterday.
The “southern inspired, fast casual” chain opened at 12009 Shelbyville Road in Middletown, replacing what used to be a Raising Cane’s. The restaurant will be the sixth Chicken Salad Chick franchise in Kentucky, although the Alabama-based chain has over 200 locations across the South and Midwest.
This Chicken Salad Chick location, which has a dining room and a drive-through, serves chicken salad, of course, plus other types of salads, soups, sides, and desserts.
The restaurant is hosting a number of promotional events from now through Saturday: today, the first 50 customers to buy a “Chick Trio” (a scoop or sandwich of chicken or egg salad, plus two other scoops, sides, or cups of soup) will receive a branded tumbler. Tomorrow, the first 100 customers to buy a Chick meal will receive a free branded koozie and buttercream cookie. On Saturday, the first 50 guests to buy two Large Quick Chicks will get a free pimento cheese ball.
In a press release, owner Laney Bittingham said, “Following my eight years of managing Chicken Salad Chick locations throughout Georgia and Florida, and serving as a district manager for the brand, I am thrilled to step into a new ownership role as part of the Chick team bringing this made-from-scratch, southern favorite to Middletown. We are so excited to continue growing our footprint in Kentucky and provide Chicken Salad Chick’s made-from-scratch, southern favorite to the Middletown community.”
