The Steele Creek restaurant is owned and operated by first-time Chicken Salad Chick franchise owners Peter and Susan Volk of Ashglen Inc. The Husband-and-wife duo were first introduced to the brand back in 2015 after Susan stumbled upon the Chattanooga restaurant with her mother. She instantly fell in love with the brand's unique concept and recognized the unlimited potential for success. The couple began researching franchising opportunities that same day, and once they relocated to Charlotte decided to take the leap. Today the Volk's plan to utilize their 20+ years in sales and marketing to help better serve their community and tap into Chicken Salad Chick's plethora of growth.

"When I walked into the Chick almost five years ago now, I had no idea I would be walking out as a prospective owner. I was pleasantly surprised by the brand's community-centric values, warm hospitality, and of course delicious food," said Susan Volk. "Once we started our research into franchising with the company, we got to understand the core values of the company and its unwavering support to its franchise owners. A few years later and here we are, opening our first location right in our backyard of Charlotte. We're thrilled to finally introduce our friends and family to the wonderful flavors of Chicken Salad Chick and it's one-of-a-kind dining experience."

Chicken Salad Chick in Steele Creek will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. For more information, visit Follow Chicken Salad Chick on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the latest news and trends.
