Remember just a few years ago when Western New York was going crazy over the first Chick-fil-A location?  They've got another one in the works.

What is Chick-fil-A?

For those who have never tried Chick-fil-A, it's a fast food restaurant that focuses on chicken products.  They have a very famous chicken sandwich that is simply a breaded piece of chicken on a bun with a special (Chick-fil-A) sauce and some pickles.  But they're also known for their nuggets and their waffle fries.

How many Chick-fil-A locations are already in Western New York?

Right now, there are only 3 locations in Western New York.  The first to come was the one in Cheektowaga just up the street from the Walden Galleria on Walden Ave.  The second was the one at Transit and Losson in Depew.  The most recent is the one that opened at the corner of McKinley and Milestrip in Blasdell.  There are some in Canada and Rochester, but in Western New York, there are only 3, for now.

Where will the new location be?

According to Buffalo Business First, there is another restaurant in the works for Niagara Falls.  This one will be in the Esporta Plaza right next to the I-190 at the corner of Factory Outlet Boulevard.  Considering it would be right off the 190, it's a perfect spot for hungry shoppers and Canadians who are passing through the area.

The plans include a new building with a drive-thru and 51 parking spaces.

“We would take down the GameStop, where the lease is nearing its end so that building is contemplated to come down, and will make room for the new build Chick-fil-A roughly on the same footprint.” - Eric Recoon, vice president of development and leasing at Benderson Development

The plans are now with the Niagara County Planning Board.
