This Chain Will Help You Through Your Chick-fil-A Chicken Salad Withdrawal
Late last month, Chick-fil-A restaurants across the country sold their last chicken salad sandwiches.
According to TODAY, the decision to drop the menu item on Sept. 30 wasn’t easy, but the chain wanted to make room for new items in the future.
“We know that many of our customers loved our Chicken Salad, but we have also heard from guests that they are looking for new tastes and fresh flavors on the menu in our restaurants,” a company spokesperson wrote in an email to TODAY.
For those of you who are bummed that your chicken salad is a thing of the past, another restaurant chain, Chicken Salad Chick, has stepped up to fill the void.
The restaurants will let you try a free scoop of chicken salad if you visit a participating location by Oct. 14.
While most restaurants that sell chicken salad offer only a single version, Chicken Salad Chick restaurants have more than a dozen options, so you can find the perfect one for you.
Chicken Salad Chick opened its first location in 2008 and now has 51 restaurants. Most of its restaurants are in the southeast U.S., but they stretch as far west as the Dallas area and as far north as Greensboro, North Carolina.
