Longtime Springfield residents, Mike and Kelly Parker of Chicks R Us, LLC are new to Chicken Salad Chick but are such big fans of the brand already they have plans to open a second Greene County location in the future. Mike has an extensive restaurant background, having previously led operations for Krispy Kreme Corporate and owned four franchised locations. Kelly's career is in finance, so the two feel well-prepared to hit the ground running when they open those Chicken Salad Chick doors to their community. They are joining three other locations currently open in MissouriChesterfield, Creve Coeur and Columbia.

"Kelly and I have a friend who would bring us Chicken Salad Chick from Tennessee, and we were hooked right away on the freshly prepared food and variety of flavors," said Mike Parker. "As we learned more about the brand's culture of service and focus on spreading joy and enriching lives, we knew opening our own hometown location would be a great fit for us and for the Springfield community. Whether they are dining in, need a quick lunch or dinnertime solution to-go or have an event that needs catering, we can't wait to be a new favorite spot for our neighbors."
