Chicken Salad Chick FayettevilleHeads up Fayetteville, a new restaurant is coming, as Chicken Salad Chick will be holding its grand opening on Tuesday, May 3.

The fast-casual chicken salad restaurant will be at 2811 Raeford Road, in the former Five Guys location, across from Harris Teeter. Opening week will feature a series of giveaways for the first visitors (see below).

Chicken Salad Chick was founded in Auburn, Alabama and has quickly grown. The restaurant features “full-flavored, Southern-style chicken salad made from scratch and served from the heart. With more than a dozen original chicken salad flavors as well as fresh side salads, gourmet soups, signature sandwiches and delicious desserts, Chicken Salad Chick’s robust menu is a perfect fit for any guest.”

And the first Fayetteville location will be opened by a Fayetteville native, Jonah Greenup. This is the first location, with two additional locations expected from the franchisee in the future.

“I experienced Chicken Salad Chick for the first time a couple of years ago in Richmond, Virginia, and I became an instant fan of the made-from-scratch food served from the heart with unmatched hospitality,” Greenup, the franchise owner, said in a press release. “This is my hometown, and I’m thrilled to be opening a business that I know will spread joy to my neighbors and enrich the community.”

As part of the grand opening, Chicken Salad Chick will have a series of giveaways and specials, including:
