A public hearing Tuesday night before the Cheektowaga Town Board reviewed the special use permit for an accessory drive-thru window at the area's first Chick-Fil-A on Walden Avenue.
The fast-food chain "put a ton" of landscaping and greenery into the site at 1753 Walden Ave., a representative from Bohler Engineering told the board.
"Chick-Fil-A takes pride in its building both inside and out," Tim Freitag of Bohler Engineering said. "It has a very hefty landscaping budget."
In addition, Freitag said the company corrected the portion of the building facing Walden, adding grid work and glass to break up the brick and mortar.
There will be 52 parking spaces at the new restaurant, with space for 24 cars "stacked" in the drive-thru line, said Freitag.
The company adhered to the town code by locating the drive-thru 220 feet from the intersection and 660 feet from the interstate.
