About Chicken Salad Chick
The Bloomington restaurant is owned and operated by Yonas Hagos of DLH Chicken Salad EP, who first joined the Chicken Salad Chick family in 2020 with the opening of the East Peoria location. Hagos has made a remarkable journey from the Sudan refugee camp of his childhood to fulfilling a lifelong dream of business ownership. Prior to his franchising career, he enlisted in the military following 9/11. Hagos completed tours in Germany, Kuwait, and Iraq, earning a Purple Heart for his brave service. Today, he is focused on his passion for service in the hospitality industry. In addition to the Chick, he owns multiple locations of Dunkin’, Arby’s and Smoothie King throughout central Illinois.
