The new location will be at 1501 Premium Outlets Boulevard.

Local franchise owner Jason Barnes invited residents to join in the opening festivities by participating in a community celebration on Wednesday.

The event, featuring Chick-fil-A’s First 100 Road Trip, embodies a 15-year Chick-fil-A tradition of community engagement where almost $39 million in free Chick-fil-A meals has been awarded through year end 2018.

The nearly 5,000-square-foot restaurant is designed to enhance all aspects of a guest’s experience from the drive-thru to the counter as well as in-restaurant dining.

The dining room alone seats 138 with a vintage-inspired interior. It includes a large gathering table made from reclaimed wood, light fixtures from recycled Coca-Cola bottles and peach baskets and a 50-foot-tall flag pole.
