NEW YORK -- The southern fast food chain Chick-fil-A may be expanding here in New York City.
According to Buzzfeed, Chick-fil-A plans to open multiple locations in the city in addition to a new Herald Square location, also a location near Rockefeller Center and possibly on the Upper East Side and in the Financial District in the coming years.
From the Southeast, Christine Generale is familiar with Chick-fil-A food and also its popularity.
"Very popular, and a lot of people like that they do have the one guaranteed day off," Generale said,
A few years ago, the company's then-chief operating officer stirred up controversy when speaking out against legalizing same-sex marriage. The company has since said it would stay away from politics.
"New Yorkers have a short attention span, everyday something new and shiny is capturing our imaginations so we kind of forget what happened several years ago," PR specialist Peter Shankman said.
There is already a Chick-fil-A location at NYU. PIX11 News reached out to Chick-fil-A for comment on the reported new restaurants and have not heard back.
