Chick-fil-a lover’s rejoice, an outpost will finally be opening in NYC this summer. The new Chik-fil-a (that spot in NYU just doesn’t count) will be in Herald Square, a few blocks from Macy’s.
Just days after we told you Chick-fil-A is planning to finally open outposts in NYC later this year, the fried chicken sandwich purveyor on Tuesday revealed the location of its first franchise restaurant here: Herald Square.
Here’s the scoop: the Chick-fil-A restaurant will be located at 1000 6th Ave (at 37th St and Sixth Ave) near Herald Square and the company anticipates a late summer opening date, according to a statement from Carrie Kurlander, VP of Public Relations at Chick-fil-A. And just like other Chick-fil-A restaurants, the new three-level, 5,000sqft location will not be open on Sundays, according to a report by Crain’s New York Business.
Reportedly, this is only the first NYC Chick-fil-a location of many to come. Despite CEO Dan Cathy’s ill-received statements about gay marriage, which he later called a mistake, expect Chick-Fil-A’s arrival to be met with plenty of cheers.
Chicken biscuits for everyone!
