The wait is finally almost over for Chick-fil-A's enormous NYC restaurant.
The Southern fried chicken purveyor announced Monday that its highly anticipated first freestanding location in the city will open on October 3rd at the corner of 37th St and Sixth Ave in Midtown. It will be the biggest Chick-fil-A in the country, featuring three floors spanning a total of 5,000sqft, the company said in a press release.
The forthcoming fried chicken fortress is "the first of many" restaurants planned as part of Chick-fil-A's grand, greasy invasion of NYC, with a second spot slated to open near Rockefeller Center at 46th St and Sixth Ave. The company is also eyeing additional locations for stores on the Upper East Side and the Financial District over the next few years.
