The beloved chicken chain is opening their largest restaurant location yet in the Financial District. The location will feature five floors and a cozy rooftop terrace. To accommodate all of NYC's hungry masses, the restaurant will include two kitchens and even a few private meeting rooms.
The 12,000-square-foot restaurant will also be the narrowest location the company has ever built. Size restrictions forced the company to build up instead of out. But they picked this important piece of property for good reason.
The new location will be just a few blocks from the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, and just footsteps from the subway. It's the perfect place for tourists and visitors to take a break and fill their tanks while out and about. Plus, the location's rooftop and large glass windows will allow visitors to enjoy a unique, unblocked view of the Freedom Tower from anywhere in the building.
Currently, the largest Chick-fil-A stands in Herald Square and is one of the chain's most popular locations. Their new restaurant is scheduled to open sometime in early 2018.
