It’s official, all the hurdles have been cleared, permits have been issued and Chick-fil-A will soon have its first restaurants in the Capital Region (at least where TSA security screenings aren’t required).
The town of Clifton Park says construction could begin at any time on the new restaurant, which will be located at 304 Clifton Park Center Road, the site of the former Pier 1 Imports store.
Only one Chick-fil-A currently exists in the Capital Region and that’s at Albany International Airport. To eat there, you better be traveling since its located behind the security checkpoint.
The newest location is located right off exit 9 of the Northway adjacent to the Clifton Park Center Mall. Chick-fil-A owner plan on a dual opening with the Clifton Park location expected to start serving in early spring, likely April or May. At the same time, another Chic-fil-A is scheduled to open its doors at 502 North Greenbush Road in North Greenbush.
Both towns say they expect a significant increase in traffic in the new locations, but hope that opening both on the same day will alleviate some of that.
