MIDTOWN, Manhattan (PIX11) — A new Chick-fil-A location will open at the corner of 6th Avenue and West 37th Street during late summer, the first franchise location in New York City.

“We are beyond excited about opening our first franchise restaurant in New York.  Until now, the only place you could enjoy our food was on the campus of NYU,” Vice President of Public Relations Carrie Kurlander said.

“We are ready to fire up the grills and serve our chicken, hot waffle fries and fresh lemonade to the Herald Square neighborhood.”

Needless to say, chicken fans from all over are welcoming the new store with open arms.

Well, maybe not everyone.

“This location will allow us to serve fans who have been asking us to come to New York and to earn the opportunity to serve new customers,” Kurlander said. “It will be the first of many locations in the city.”
