The Coral Springs restaurant is owned and operated by first-time Chicken Salad Chick franchise owners Claibourne and Nicholas Rogers of The Rogers Group, LLC. Claibourne was first introduced to the brand in 2015 while serving as an account director at Chicken Salad Chick's public relations agency, Fish Consulting. From assisting with grand opening strategies to boosting consumer awareness of the brand's offerings, she was an integral part of the Chicken Salad Chick team and when presented with the opportunity to open the brand's first restaurant in South Florida, the Rogers couldn't resist. The husband-and-wife-team are thrilled to be opening in Coral Springs and have plans to open an additional location in Boca Raton in the next couple years.
"When I started working with Chicken Salad Chick, I immediately fell in love with the founder's story, the corporate team and the brand's values. The only downside was that there wasn't a location near me! So any time I would visit the Auburn headquarters for meetings, I would fill my carry on bag with as much chicken salad as I could fit and share with my coworkers, family and friends. They quickly became hooked and I knew then that Chicken Salad Chick would be the perfect addition to Coral Springs' growing restaurant scene," said Claibourne Rogers. "My husband and I are thrilled to be starting our journey as Chicken Salad Chick franchise owners and are excited to introduce South Florida to the flavorful chicken salads we've come to love."
Chicken Salad Chick in Coral Springs will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30a.m.–8p.m. For more information, visit www.chickensaladchick.com. Follow Chicken Salad Chick on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest news and trends.
