Yet another Chick-fil-A could be on its way to Tulsa – If the locals allow it
The Brookside Neighborhood Association will host an open dialogue on December 13 at 6:00 PM to address the potential arrival of a Chick-fil-A in the vicinity. This informational gathering will take place at Southminster Presbyterian Church.
Community members and business owners are cordially invited to engage in a discussion about the proposed fast-food establishment, as mandated by a city regulatory requirement to gather all perspectives.
Plans for a restaurant/multi-use location have been filed, accompanied by conceptual designs depicting the building and drive-thru. If approved, Chick-fil-A would become the third chicken chain to set up shop in the area. The meeting is open to the public and welcomes public remarks.
While some individuals have expressed concerns about the construction and traffic on Peoria Avenue, Brookside Neighborhood Association President Cindy Woodward affirmed that once the construction is finalized and the new center lane is added, it will alleviate traffic congestion.
According to this website, there are a total of 29 Chick-fil-A restaurants operating in Oklahoma state. With a number of Chick-fil-A establishments in the local vicinity, there is a valid reason for concern from locals regarding whether this will actually benefit the area or not.
Chick-fil-A was founded in 1946 by S. Truett Cathy in Hapeville, Georgia. The restaurant started out as a small, family-owned diner called the Dwarf Grill and didn’t become Chick-fil-A until 1967. The restaurant’s signature menu item – the chicken sandwich – was introduced in 1964.
