They believe whole-heartedly in the brand's mission to serve others and have really enjoyed becoming part of the communities they serve.

"Our newest location is centrally located for work, school, retail and fun. It's the ideal spot for on-the-go professionals and families looking for delicious food made with fresh ingredients every day. We can't wait to serve our flavorful varieties of chicken salad and sides to this community."
