Multi-unit franchise owners David Harris, Ken Greene, Rand Jones, Ed James, and Bart Middlebrooks of SureChick Kentucky, LLC began opening Chicken Salad Chick locations in 2015. They are bringing their second Kentucky Chick to Fern Creek alongside Operator Laney Brittingham to combine their extensive ownership experience with Brittingham's 10-year career managing Chicken Salad Chick restaurants. After moving to Louisville to open the Middletown location in 2021, she has been spreading joy, enriching lives and serving others in the market for two years now and is looking forward to expanding in Fern Creek.

"We love the day-to-day operations of the restaurant and putting smiles on the faces of the people who walk through our doors. Whether that be new guests, our regulars or team members, we want to serve others through the love of chicken salad," said Laney Brittingham. "We are so grateful for all the support we have received in Middletown and the opportunity to grow our footprint in Kentucky with Chicken Salad Chick's made-from-scratch, Southern favorites. We're eager to share our passion for service with this opening in Fern Creek, where many of our Middletown employees and guests live. It's a wonderful, family-centered community that is growing quickly."

This restaurant group enjoys giving back to important causes. With the Fern Creek opening, they will be supporting Gilda's Club Kentuckiana as part of their pre-opening Friends & Family events. The first cancer support community of its kind in the area, Gilda's Club has the unique mission of ensuring those affected by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community. This cause goes hand-in-hand with Chicken Salad Chick's mission to help raise money to find a cure for cancer through its Foundation.

Chicken Salad Chick in Fern Creek will be open Monday – Saturday from 10 a.m.8 p.m. For more information, visit Follow Chicken Salad Chick on Facebook and Instagram for the latest news and trends.
