There was no shortage of chicken salad to go around at Destin's Chicken Salad Chick, which is located at 36150 Emerald Coast Parkway, Suite 111.

With 15 flavors of chicken salad to choose from, ranging from traditional to the unique, Destin's Chicken Salad Chick has a flavor for every palate.

"People in the south really have an appreciation for chicken salad, mostly because we've eaten it our whole lives," franchise owner Mark Singletary told The Log.

Located at 36150 Emerald Coast Parkway, Suite 111 in the City Market Shopping Center, Chicken Salad Chick opened its doors to hungry chicken salad lovers July 30. The Destin location is the second franchise in Florida.

Singletary will operate the fast-casual restaurant concept alongside his daughter Lauryn and her husband Cope Smith, who have been fans of the Chicken Salad Chick since eating at the original location in Auburn, Ala.

"This is a great opportunity for me and my partners to be part of the Destin community," Singletary said.

Much like an ice cream parlor where you can sample flavors, Singletary said customers can tempt their taste buds by sampling each flavor of chicken salad to find their favorite.

As a native Texan, and longtime Louisiana resident, Singletary is no stranger to bold flavors, and the Jalapeno Holly "scratched that itch" for him.
