This has recently become my favorite fast food restaurant. Great, fresh-tasting food and the nicest staff I've ever encountered at a fast food place.

They want to build in Wallingford, Connecticut where Midas Mufflers is currently located on North Colony Road (Route 5).

Actually there are Chick-fil-A locations at the Northshore Mall in Peabody and at the Burlington Mall.  The Pheasant Lane Mall in Nashua NH has one too.  But those are the only ones in New England.  There's a mess of them in the Mid-Atlantic states but they are disproportionately on-campus locations.
they closed a handfull of on campus locations and they have been in the news alot recently

On the news because of their FAITH...Great Food and classy people!! Any in Connecticut, yet?

eh i don't care for chicken or their beliefs so you wont see me eating at one anytime soon

Why do you care that much about their beliefs?

Why wouldn't you care about their beliefs? If the CEO of a company went around saying that white is a superior race and all African Americans are below Caucasians would you still buy their products and help pay their paycheck?

To be honest this place was my second favorite fast food restaurant but once I found out about the supporting of anti-gay organizations and anti-gay comments made by their ceo I refuse to go their now. They have the right to their beliefs however I'm not going to buy anything from a company that used the money it made from it's customers to support a hateful agenda.

Is it possible that we can steer this conversation back to the restaurants themselves? Thanks...

I read that one may be built in Hamden, CT on land that was previously a Chrysler dealership.

It would be nice if they came to Bristol, CT. The old Checker's would be a good spot.

Demolition of the old Midas Muffler Shop in Wallingford began last week so construction can begin on Chick-Fil-A.

Their food is great, but the one near me is so crowded I rarely go there.
I have actually seen the line of cars at their drive-thru lap itself!

No way I can get in and out and back to work in time from lunch.

We have 2 Chick-fil-a that are less than a 1/2 mile from each other in Bensalem, PA, only seperated by US Route 1.

The first is located inside Neshaminy Mall.  this location has been opened sice at least the 1980's.

The second location is on Horizion Blvd.  It is a modern day stand alone store, and opened at the same time the Horizion Center itself opened.  the Horizion Center is built on the site of Eastern State Hospital.

Nothing official yet as nothing has been filed with the town, but there's a rumor that they're going to put one on Queen Street in Southington, Connecticut in a new development planned for next to 7-Eleven.

They're are also talking about putting one on Universal Drive in North Haven, Connecticut where the Rave movie theater used to be. Cinemark built a new movie theater on the property that just opened and they demolished the old one.

Great news!

They should try to convert the soon-to-close Arby's, it would probably happen sooner than late 2016

CFA tends to favor new builds in new markets. I think the Arby's franchise owner balked at the corporate refresh mandate, which hastened his "retirement." It appears to have scared away potential buyers as well, as they closed without a new franchisee in place.

Chick-fil-A was in the food court at Century III Mall from it's opening until about eight or nine years ago,
when it moved into a failed Krispy Kreme location down on Route 51 in front of the Southland Shopping Center.  For years this was the only CFA in the greater Pittsburgh area.

An article on the Meriden-Record Journal's website confirms the Southington, CT Chick Fil-A will open January 8th, 2018. The article was about the progress of the new development that also includes an Aldi, a Chipotle, and ugh another Urgent Care Center.
