[UPDATE] Chicken Salad Chick Forced to Close in Vinings, Reopening ASAP

The Chicken Salad Chick in Vinings was forced to close early Saturday after an unfortunate auto accident ended IN the restaurant.  According to a message posted to the restaurant's Facebook page, a guest had a stroke and drove into their building, causing extensive interior and structural damage, but resulting in no serious injuries. 
"We regret to inform everyone that we will be CLOSED for the foreseeable future. We had an accident tonight at the Vinings Chick but are so incredibly lucky that no one was seriously injured. Please keep the guest who had a stroke and drove into our building in your thoughts and prayers. Below is a glimpse of the destruction. Thank you for your patience and support."

The restaurant, located at 2810 Paces Ferry Road in Vinings Station, first opened March 7, 2018, and as of  December 20, 2018, was purchased along with ten other units from franchisee Origin Development Group, and is now a corporately-owned restaurant. 

The Vinings location is now the second local Chicken Salad Chick to close temporarily following the closure of the East Cobb restaurant in Sandy Plains Centre.  The Sandy Plains restaurant, which opened June 25, 2019, has been closed since September 21 due to what they referred to as a "shopping center maintenance issue."   ToNeTo Atlanta reported October 7 that the closure is actually related to an as yet unresolved "rodent infestation" affecting multiple tenants in the center.  

Customers wishing to chow down on Chicken Salad Chick during the time both restaurants are closed should visit other locations in East Cobb, Kennesaw and north Buckhead near Chastain Park, among others.  All locations also offer catering.

I feel like the East Cobb Chicken Salad Chick is probably not reopening at this point - it's been three months, the pet store next door no longer stinks of death so the rodent problem is probably solved, the windows have been papered over and there appears to be no sign of activity.
