Stacy Brown is definitely on a quest to get the perfect chicken salad. One day she had an epiphany: Everyone’s notion of the ideal chicken salad is totally different! The stay-at-home mom set to work perfecting her own recipe, recruiting her family and neighbors to taste-test, before arriving at the one.
Once Stacy had the chicken salad that made her friends and family say “mmm, yes ma’am,” she started dropping off examples of her creation in teachers’ lounges and hair salons, and then began selling door-to-door. Orders poured in; Chicken Salad Chick Locations came to be. One day Stacy received a phone call from Stan with the Lee County Health Department, who told her the house business was illegal. Together with her chicken salad still in high demand, Stacy and her husband, Kevin Brown, were motivated to start up a carry-out only, humble yet honest-to-goodness restaurant where they might spread joy, enrich lives, and serve others. The rest, as the saying goes, is history.
