The family first experienced Chicken Salad Chick’s unique concept and hospitable atmosphere while on vacation in Destin, Florida 10 years ago. With over three decades of small business ownership experience, Sara and Danny instantly saw immense opportunity to grow alongside the brand in their home state of Kentucky with their children. By September 2020, the group opened their first location in Owensboro, Kentucky and, just eight months later, are ready to welcome their Evansville restaurant with plans to expand into Bowling Green, Kentucky by 2022.

«Whenever we visited Destin, our family would look forward to the moment we could share a meal at Chicken Salad Chick and take some Quick Chicks home with us to experience the brand’s made-from-scratch menu items together. Now, we’re behind the scenes serving up those memorable moments to families in the state we know and love,» said Sara Duggar. «It has been incredibly rewarding to not only build a brand we believe in but to also do so alongside our children and create a legacy for our family. We’re thrilled to continue that legacy with our Evansville opening and bring Chicken Salad Chick’s fresh flavors to another community.»
