[EXCLUSIVE] Chicken Salad Chick Sets Sights on Scenic Highway in Snellville

Snellville will later this year welcome a new Chicken Salad Chick restaurant.  The former Wendy's (1918 Scenic Highway), will provide a drive-thru for the chicken salad eatery, a feature that will undoubtedly become even more in demand as potentially permanent shifts in consumer habits take shape in the months and years to come.  For its part, Wendy's closed the unit to reopen at about a mile south at 2229 Scenic Highway, a smaller, more efficient unit that sports the company's latest branding and imaging.  The new Wendy's is expected to open in the next 60 days or so.   
Chicken Salad Chick, based in Auburn, Alabama, has steadily been expanding its presence in the greater metro Atlanta area, having recently added a new location in Loganville.  ToNeTo Atlanta reported in July  that Chicken Salad Chick plans to open their latest Atlanta area location August 18 in Johns Creek/Suwanee.  

ToNeTo Atlanta recently spoke to Chicken Salad Chick Vice President of Marketing Tom Carr who said that Snellville, Tucker and the Mall of Georgia corridor are all areas of interest for the company.  Readers of this site have been especially vocal over the years of their wishes for the chain to open in Tucker.  

30 percent of Chicken Salad Chick's roughly 160 units nationwide feature a drive-thru according to Carr, and while the availability of that feature does not necessarily dictate whether or not they open in a specific area, getting one, as in Snellville, is a definite plus.  

Scenic Highway is already full of quick-serve restaurants, but more have opened in recent years, including Cook-Out, Zaxby's, Culver's, Freddy's, Taco Bell, Arby's and Krispy Kreme, among others.  Across from the upcoming Chicken Salad Chick, McDonald's opened in place of a demolished former Fuddruckers, while Del Taco re-entered the Atlanta market by converting a former Fazoli's.  

The Chicken Salad Chick in Snellville could open before the end of the year and would be one of more than 30 the company has opened or plans to open in 2020.  In metro Atlanta the company operates eleven, with Johns Creek to be number twelve.

I thought the response over the pickup back during the quarantine would show CSC that Tucker really wants this!

Call me psychic, but it appears some folks would want a CSC in Tucker. May I suggest you contact CSC directly. As much as I enjoy Eli's work, I don't think he has the power to make this happen. I wrote them about opening in Smyrna/Vinings and they told me it was going to happen and sure enough it did. Doesn't mean they will open one in Tucker, but if there is enough interest, it could shift their focus to Tucker.

Chicken Salad Chick would do very well in Tucker, and there are lots of great locations to choose from, including the new Hugh Howell Marketplace shopping center or in or around Northlake Mall.

I love Chicken Salad Chick and use to frequent when they only had the one location near Opelika/Auburn, AL so I am glad they have expanded their market a great deal.

My favorite one is Nutty Nana (which isn't available at all locations).

I agree with others, I think the Tucker/Northlake area would be ideal for a Chicken Salad Chick. Also think the Perimeter Mall area would be a good choice.

I live in Snellville, this is cool and all but I'm really hoping to have a Five Guys in this neighborhood, so long overdue. But I'll take all the choices I can have.
