Remembering Chicken Salad Chick Co-Founder Kevin Brown

Restaurateur Kevin Brown passed away on November 21 after a two-year battle with cancer. He co-founded Chicken Salad Chick with Stacy Melton Brown.

Kevin also launched the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation after his diagnosis in September 2014. The foundation provides funding to the American Cancer Society to help eliminate cancer as a major health problem, supports local cancer centers, and provides food for hungry people through the support of local food banks and their various programs. Since its inception, the foundation has raised over $250,000.

A native of Eufaula, Ala., Kevin Brown was born on April 6, 1975. He attended The Lakeside School in Eufaula before attending the University of Alabama. He spent 15 years in the sales and sales management industry before co-founding Chicken Salad Chick with Stacy. Brown leaves behind a wife and four children.

In lieu of flowers, the Brown family asks that you instead contribute to the Chicken Salad Chick Foundation.
