We may have just unearthed the best new idea for an outing! The appetizer: walking around a gorgeously-landscaped area. The main course: eating a delicious farm-to-table feast. The dessert: picking out a plant to take home in the retail center. That’s right—you’ll find the menu to the perfect day at the upcoming Botanic in Opelika, located in the former Cock of the Walk building.
More on Botanic in Opelika
You may recognize some of the names behind Botanic in Opelika! This upcoming business will arrive in town, all thanks to the folks from Chicken Salad Chick, Crepe Myrtle Café, and Blooming Colors. In fact, one of the founders is Stacy Brown, who also founded Chicken Salad Chick, and her husband King Braswell.
Chicken Salad Chick also came from local roots too! Back in the beginning, Brown used to sell her recipes door-to-door in Auburn. Now, the restaurant has blossomed into a chain success. So, it’s nice to see that all the support it received locally is being poured back into our economy!
