“Our team is thrilled to be opening a new Chicken Salad Chick on the east side of Columbia, and specifically in Trenholm Plaza,” said Julie Beville. “Guests at our Lexington and Irmo restaurants have been clamoring for a location on this side of town, closer to Downtown and the university. We have looked at numerous opportunities over the years and had our eyes on Trenholm Plaza for a long time. We are so glad we are finally able to expand into such a great lifestyle center alongside many wonderful shops and restaurants.”

Sing Bev Hospitality also makes community partnerships a priority.
