(Chicken Salad Chick)

Chicken Salad Chick, a fast-casual chicken salad restaurant, plans to open its sixth location in Arkansas and its third in Little Rock next week.

The location at 17400 Chenal Parkway will feature a drive-thru and patio seating. It's set to open Nov. 15. The first 100 guests will receive one large Quick Chick of chicken salad per month for a year.

Emily Gray and business partner Hudson Sandefur of Little Rocking Chick LLC are the franchising duo behind the expansion. The two met when Gray was working as a corporate trainer for the brand and Sandefur was opening several Chick locations across Mississippi and Tennessee.

Gray and Sandefur opened their first location in Arkansas in June 2020 and now have restaurants in Little Rock, North Little Rock, Conway, Benton, Fayetteville and Jonesboro. The partners told Arkansas Business that they're also looking to bring Chicken Salad Chick to Hot Springs and Texarkana.

The restaurant chain, based in Auburn, Alabama, saw U.S. sales rise 45.6% last year to $255 million.
