The Norfolk-Railyard Chicken Salad Chick is a testament to the dynamic partnership of experienced franchisees Melissa Holt and Chris Carnes under Carmel Chick, LLC. Melissa Holt, who initiated her Chicken Salad Chick journey in 2021 with the opening of her first location in Hampton, joins forces with Chris Carnes, whose Fayetteville, North Carolina location became a reality in 2022. Both franchisees share a profound belief in Chicken Salad Chick’s mission to spread joy, enrich lives, and serve others. The Norfolk-Railyard opening embodies their commitment to extending the joy of delicious food to the Virginia community.
Melissa Holt, the franchise owner of Chicken Salad Chick Norfolk-Railyard, expresses her excitement about the expansion, stating, “It’s a privilege to spread the mission of Chicken Salad Chick here in Norfolk, and I feel truly grateful for the opportunity to bring the best chicken salad to even more people throughout Virginia. We’re excited to bring the delicious flavors that Chicken Salad Chick has become known for in Hampton to the other side of the water.”
Beyond the culinary celebration, Chicken Salad Chick dedicates itself to supporting important causes throughout the year. With the Norfolk-Railyard opening, the local team commits to championing With Intentional Kindness and Support (WINKS), a nonprofit organization with a mission to enhance the quality of life for patients and caregivers of the brain tumor community. This choice holds personal significance for the general manager of the Norfolk location, who has a familial connection to the challenges of brain cancer.
The Norfolk-Railyard Chicken Salad Chick warmly welcomes patrons from Monday to Saturday, extending its culinary embrace from 10:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. It’s not just a restaurant; it’s a culinary haven where flavors dance, and joy finds its expression.
