Chicken Salad Chick, the nation’s newest, fast-casual restaurant concept, is scheduled to open Florida’s second Chicken Salad Chick franchise July 30 in Destin in the City Market Shopping Center at 36150 Emerald Coast Parkway, Unit 111.

The Destin owner, Mark Singletary and Lauryn and Cope Smith, have been loyal fans of the brand and wanted to bring it to Destin following on the heels of successful franchise launches in Valdosta, Ga., and Tallahassee in early 2013.

 “This is a wonderful opportunity to get in on the ground floor and be part of what will undoubtedly be tremendous growth of the Chicken Salad Chick concept,” said Singletary. “Getting to live and work in Destin is a dream come true and I am so happy with the construction progress so far. I know that our new friends and neighbors are going to fall in love with Chicken Salad Chick in just a few short weeks.”
