5Church, Chicken Salad Chick plan 2nd locations

Chicken Salad Chick plans to open a second Charlotte location Dec. 16, in the Bank of America Plaza uptown at 101 S. Tryon St. Owners Julie Beville and Michelle Singleton plan 10 Charlotte locations, according to the Alabama chain's press release, and founder Stacy Brown's company has sold 100 franchises, from Florida to Texas.

5Church's owners plan to open a second location in Charleston this summer, at the corner of Market and East Bay streets. While the Charlotte one's named for its location at Fifth and Church streets, this one earns its moniker by being sited in a former church. Look for "neo-Victorian" decor and Sun Tsu's "The Art of War" lettered on the ceiling -- both signature details of the original.
