Chicken Salad Chick is on a roll as it prepares to launch its latest store in Arlington, its fourth North Texas restaurant opening this year.
The chain claims to be the nation’s only southern inspired, fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept and its expansion in the Dallas-Fort Worth will take the number of sites it has unveiled this year to 11.
A further location is slated to open in Fort Worth in 2020.
The Arlington restaurant will hold its grand opening on 10 December and will offer free chicken salad for a year to the first 100 guests.
The first guest will receive one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per week for 12 months, while the next 99 guests will receive one per month for a year.
The Dallas-Fort Worth expansion is being led by multi-unit franchise owners Luis Ibarguengoytia and Hugo del Pozzo of Metroplex CSC.
Since opening their first location in Irving earlier this year, Metroplex CSC brought Chicken Salad Chick to McKinney and following their opening in Arlington, plan to open at least 12 additional in the coming years.
“In less than a year, we will have opened our third Chicken Salad Chick location in DFW and we couldn’t be more thrilled,” said Luis Ibarguengoytia, who has two decades of experience managing restaurant operations for a variety of concepts, including Bruegger’s Bagels, Cru Wine Bar and Panda Express.
“We knew the brand would be a hit in the area and the response we received when we debuted in Irving solidified that feeling. We are excited to introduce the brand’s made-from-scratch chicken salad flavors to the residents in Arlington and can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 by founder, Stacy Brown.
Under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and the Chicken Salad Chick team, the company now has more than 140 restaurants currently open in 16 states.
