Auburn, Ala. — Chicken Salad Chick, a Southern-inspired, fast-casual chicken salad restaurant concept, has quickly adapted operations to adhere to mandates across the nation suspending restaurant dine-in services by introducing online ordering, curbside pickup and local Quick Chick delivery options at all locations. For added convenience and to further limit interaction while still providing residents with quality meals, Chicken Salad Chick has introduced pop-up drive-thrus and is currently testing third party delivery, at select locations.
Quick Chick deliveries allow the brand to provide preordered and prepackaged sizes of their chicken salad flavors to more communities in the cities they serve. Restaurants choose a local meeting place, such as high schools and conveniently located parking lots to distribute the preordered Quick Chicks directly to guests in their vehicles.
Regarding the new pop-up drive-thrus, restaurants that do not have a drive-thru have been setting up a tent in the front, side or rear of the restaurant where guests can drive up, order and have the meal delivered directly to their car. Additionally, Chicken Salad Chick is testing third-party delivery options and is partnering with a select number of services including Door Dash and Postmates to make ordering takeout even easier.
“From the start, our mission at Chicken Salad Chick has been to spread joy, enrich lives and serve others, and that continues to be our goal even during a period of social distancing,” says Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. “We didn’t think twice about implementing these new dining options. We’ll continue to provide high-quality meals prepared under our strict food safety protocol as we navigate the obstacles before us and know that our loyal guests will continue to support us and the restaurant industry as a whole. We’re all in this together.”
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 in Auburn, Ala., by founder Stacy Brown. Under the leadership of CEO Scott Deviney and the Chicken Salad Chick team, the company now has more than 155 restaurants currently open in 16 states.
