Retail Day Speaker: Auburn-based Chicken Salad Chick tells her story

Stacy Brown, founder of Auburn-based Chicken Salad Chick, will be the keynote speaker for the Annual Alabama Retail Day luncheon and awards program set for Tuesday, Oct. 16, in Vestavia Hills.

The stay-at-home-mom, along with her late husband, Kevin, turned a recipe into a restaurant in 2008 and then spread the brand to nine states with more than 90 locations, including 19 in Alabama. In 2014, the Browns established the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation to fight cancer and feed the hungry.

Retail Day recognizes successful retailers who make noteworthy contributions to their communities, significantly enhance the welfare of their associates and positively influence the Alabama economy. The guests of honor are the 2018 Alabama Retailers of the Year and Alabama Centennial Retailers. This year, Alabama Retail Comp will also recognize a Centennial Insurance Agency.

Award winners receive invitations to the event. Any Alabama Retail Association member is encouraged to attend. Seating is limited.
