Chick-Fil-A to Open Three Story Chicken Biscuit Emporium in Midtown This Summer

The chain finally makes good on its promise to open in NYC.


Chik-Fil-A very recently reignited the hopes of many that it would finally bring full-fledged outposts to NYC, and now, just days later, it's actually making good on that promise. According to Crain's, the fried chicken chain just signed the lease for a three-story behemoth of an outpost on 6th Avenue, on the corner of 37th Street. The first Manhattan Chick-Fil-A besides the mostly inaccessible express counter in an NYU dining hall should open by late summer. When it does, it will only be open six days a week, and like all other Chick-Fil-As, stay closed on Sundays. But it will have a total of 10 registers – more, apparently, than any other Chick-Fil-A – in order to handle the siege of chicken biscuit orders. Judging by a rendering, it looks like this Chick-Fil-A will also do catering.

Though the chain is still trying to smooth over the lingering anger over COO Dan Cathy's anti-gay remarks three years ago, it promises that its "entrance to New York City comes with a side of LGBT-inclusivity." It has also promised that this and all future NYC outposts will be hip, millenial-friendly, and sort of healthy.
