Started by a stay at home mom and a computer salesmen, Chicken Salad Chick is the nation’s newest, fast-casual restaurant concept and is offered by Auburn, AL based Simply Southern Restaurant Group. The concept offers customers a “custom-fit” chicken salad experience, with 15 original flavors to choose from, as well as gourmet soups, flavorful side salads and freshly-baked desserts. Simply Southern Restaurant Group has added four new associates to support the concept’s growing number of restaurant franchisees across the Southeast.
“We are pleased to add these strong professionals to our ranks,” said Simply Southern Restaurant Group President and CEO Kelley P. Mossburg. “Our top priority is to ensure all of our restaurants provide our customers with the same experience as they would have here in Auburn and Opelika, and these associates will help us ensure we do so.”
Lowry Croxdale, a fast-casual restaurant industry veteran, has been named director of operations with responsibilities for day to day operations for both company-owned and franchised stores. Kelly Schenck is the company’s new corporate franchise developer and will oversee vendor and franchisee relations and restaurant décor and build out. Cynthia Witt-Hopkins is a peak performance strategist who will be leading the training and talent development of Chicken Salad Chick staff. With more than 30 years of private industry experience Claudia Issiac will oversee office operations, policies, procedures and capital resources.
