Cheektowaga is one step closer to having two Chick-fil-A restaurants, the first town in the state to have more than one.
The Georgia-based eatery filed plans with the Town of Cheektowaga this week for the 5,000-square-foot location, which will be located on a 1.22-acre outparcel in front of the Wegmans grocery store at Transit and Losson Roads. The company submitted a development review application to construct a new building on the site of a former gas station with new parking, lighting, curbs and stormwater management facilities.
Chick-fil-A also submitted a special use permit to include a drive-thru with the building. The plans are subject to review and approval by the Town Board.
Chick-fil-A hopes to begin construction by early 2019.
Chick-fil-A's first Western New York location is under construction at the corner of Walden Avenue and Anderson Road in Cheektowaga. It's expected to open this winter, according to the fast food chain.
