Establishing the Chicken Salad Chick Franchise Across Northern Colorado

David and Jessica Zumbrun brought Chicken Salad Chick from Auburn, Alabama to Greeley because they wanted to share the food, hospitality and culture from the southern United States restaurant with Northern Colorado. The couple vacationed in Auburn in 2019, discovered Chicken Salad Chick and fell in love with it.

That same day, they contacted the company about the potential of bringing “The Chick” to Colorado. The process took four years, but their dedication allowed them to open the doors to Northern Colorado’s very first Chicken Salad Chick, right here in Greeley.

The Zumbruns' passion only grew over that time, and this summer, they are opening two new locations in Johnstown and Windsor. Both restaurants will feature a dining room and drive-thru, familiar designs to anyone who has visited The Chick in Greeley.

One of the deciding factors for the new restaurant locations was space for the drive-thru. David has worked diligently over the past few years to identify and acquire locations that suited The Chick brand. 

As franchisees of Chicken Salad Chick, David and Jessica own all three locations in Northern Colorado. The Zumbruns are proud of their team, many of whom have been onboard from the very start. 

When Stacy Brown founded Chicken Salad Chick, the stay-at-home mom relied on her family and neighbors for taste-testing and support; David and Jessica have replicated her process by making their community the center of their business model.

David and Jessica are also proud to support the local community by offering Spirit Nights at the restaurant. Spirit Nights provide organizations an opportunity to have a portion of the sales donated back to the organization. 

The Grand Opening celebrations for both of their new locations are scheduled for August, with the first 100 customers receiving free Chicken Salad Chick for a year. 

David and Jessica are proud to support the local community.
