Chicken Salad Chick

The Chicken Salad Chick franchise is a chicken business that specializes in chicken salads. The chicken franchise was founded by Stacy Brown and her Kevin husband in Auburn, Ala., in 2008. Since Chicken Salad Chick began franchising in 2012, it has expanded to more than 200 locations across the U.S. What sets the chicken franchise apart from the competition is its healthier chicken salad options. Since the franchise doesn't fry its chicken, there is no need for fryers, which lowers costs for franchisees. The initial investment for a non-drive-thru location ranges between $742,300 to $950,300. For a location with a drive-thru, the initial investment is $762,300 – $980,300.
