The Cartersville restaurant is owned and operated by multi-unit franchise owners, Bob and Penny Wiggins of Wiggins Investment. The husband-and-wife team first encountered the brand in 2010 on a trip to Destin, Florida, where they met founder Stacy Brown and immediately felt a connection to Chicken Salad Chick’s culture of spreading joy, enriching lives and serving others. Recognizing the potential behind the unique concept and with over two decades of restaurant experience to draw from, the Wiggins decided to open their first Chicken Salad Chick restaurant in Gainesville, Georgia in 2017. Just three years later, they’re bringing the newest Chick in their portfolio to their hometown of Cartersville.

“Coming from a large family of seven children with a 14th grandchild on the way, my husband and I felt a strong connection to Chicken Salad Chick’s values and knew it was a natural fit for us,” said Penny Wiggins. “For the past three years we’ve had the pleasure of serving the residents in Gainesville and have been eager to bring the brand’s made-from-scratch menu items to our hometown of Cartersville. We’ve created so many memories here and we’re proud we get to introduce Chicken Salad Chick to our friends and family, as we know they are going to fall in love with the brand just as much as we have.” 

The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 by founder, Stacy Brown. 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 offers a variety of options suitable for any guest. Under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and the Chicken Salad Chick team, the company now has more than 150 restaurants currently open in 16 states and remains a standout brand within the fast casual segment.

Chicken Salad Chick in Cartersville will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30a.m. – 8p.m. For more information, visit Follow Chicken Salad Chick on FacebookTwitter and Instagram for the latest news and trends.
