Chicken Salad Chick expanding in Houston with Kingwood on the radar

Chicken Salad Chick, the nation's only southern inspired, fast casual chicken salad restaurant concept, announced it will be expanding in Texas with its newest location in College Park. The new restaurant marks the first of five locations coming to the greater Houston area this year, including upcoming openings in Vintage Park, Kingwood and Katy. Located off Highway 242 in The Woodlands at 3026 College Park, the new restaurant will celebrate its grand opening on February 5th and is offering free chicken salad for a year to the first 150 guests.

The College Park Chicken Salad Chick is owned and operated by multi-unit franchisees Jake Alleman and Cody Gielenof Cojak Enterprises, LLC and marks the duo's third Chicken Salad Chick restaurant, with a location opened in Spring late last year and an additional location open in Mandeville, Louisiana. Following the opening in College Park, Cojak has plans to bring additional locations to Houston and Kingwood later this year. Restaurant industry veterans and experienced operators, Cojak also owns nine Another Broken Egg Cafe locations.


"Chicken Salad Chick checks all the boxes," said Cody Gielen. "The concept is unique, offers made-from-scratch menu items, provides an exceptional dining experience and treats guests like family. When you find a concept this remarkable, you don't invest in just one restaurant, you invest in multiple. We are excited to continue growing Chicken Salad Chick's footprint across Texas and are thrilled to introduce College Park to this one-of-a-kind eatery."

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. In 2015, Eagle Merchant Partners purchased a majority stake in Chicken Salad Chick, and under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and team, the company now has more than 100 restaurants currently open in 13 states and remains a standout brand within the fast casual segment.
