Grand Openings: Chicken Salad Chick

Since launching in 2008, Chicken Salad Chick has grown from a small takeout restaurant to a leading franchise brand with nearly 100 locations across the Southeast. As Chicken Salad Chick continues to expand, Fish is tasked with generating awareness of locations and driving consumer traffic to restaurants during grand opening week.
