If you’re a fan of chicken salad, you might be pumped to know a whole restaurant dedicated to the dish is set to open in Fayetteville next week.

Alabama-based chain Chicken Salad Chick is set to officially open for business at 352 E. Joyce Boulevard on Wednesday, Aug. 28, in a portion of the space formerly home to Dress Barn (next to T.J. Maxx).

Chicken Salad Chick was established in 2008 by founder Stacy Brown, who began selling her chicken salad recipes out of her home kitchen in Auburn, Alabama. Since then, the restaurant chain has grown to more than 80 restaurants across the southeast United States. The Fayetteville location will be just the second location in the Arkansas. The first company first opened in Jonesboro late last year.

As the name suggests, the menu focuses on a handful of varieties of chicken salad, from savory to fruity, nutty, or spicy recipes.

Once the restaurant is up and running, the Fayetteville location will be open Monday – Saturday from 10:30 a.m. – 8 p.m.
