Chicken Salad Chick made its Ohio and Columbus-area debut in 2019 when local franchise owner Jen Crichfield blazed the trail in the Westerville-Polaris area. A company-owned location opened the following year in Hamilton Quarter, and now the brand is expanding once again in the market. This is the seventh Chick overall for Ohio, with additional restaurants in Anderson Township, Mason, Western Hills-Cincinnati and Oakley-Cincinnati.  

"It’s been just four short years since our made-from-scratch chicken salad favorites were introduced to Ohio, and we are thrilled to be growing once again in Columbus,” said Scott Deviney, CEO of Chicken Salad Chick. “Grandview Crossing is a conveniently located development that fits perfectly with our desire to provide fresh, healthy fare and gracious hospitality to guests dining in our restaurant or on the go. We can’t wait to open our doors and welcome in our new neighbors like old friends.”    

Chicken Salad Chick enjoys giving back to important causes throughout the year, raising funds to help cure cancer and supporting local food charities in its restaurant communities. With the Grandview Crossing opening, the Chick will be supporting Neighborhood Services, Inc. (NSI) Food Pantry as part of its pre-opening Friends & Family events. The NSI Food Pantry responds to the ill effects of poverty in Central Ohio by providing food and material assistance to persons in need.
