“As a long-time fan and frequent customer of Chicken Salad Chick, it has always been a dream of mine to own a location. After visiting friends and family in Oxford, we knew it was the perfect market for Chicken Salad Chick with its Southern small-town charm and pleasant atmosphere,” said Robin Clayton, “Our family is eager to get started spreading the ‘chick’ love with the Ole Miss community.”

Chicken Salad Chick puts an edgy twist on a Southern classic, offering guests a “custom fit” chicken salad experience, with 12 original flavors to choose from, as well as soups, side salads and freshly-baked desserts.
The Clayton’s are no strangers to the Chicken Salad Chick concept. The husband-and-wife franchisee team, who now reside in Oxford, discovered the brand seven years ago, when Robin’s sister started working at the Chicken Salad Chick corporate office. After becoming familiar with the brand’s franchising opportunities, Robin and Will decided to partner with their families to form YESSAM, LLC and bring the first restaurant into the state of Mississippi.
The Chicken Salad Chick concept was established in 2008 in the kitchen of founder, Stacy Brown. When Stacy discovered that the local county health department would not allow her to continue making and selling her delicious recipes out of her home kitchen, she overcame that obstacle by launching her first restaurant with her future husband and fellow founder, Kevin Brown. Together, they opened a small takeout restaurant, which quickly grew; the company now has more than 65 restaurants across the Southeast.
