Chick-fil-A plans new store

Published:   |   Updated: March 28, 2014 at 08:40 AM

There’s good news for anyone frustrated with the traffic jam around Chick-fil-A in South Tampa. The chicken sandwich chain plans another location nearby, this time at 3678 W. Gandy Boulevard, near the corner with South Dale Mabry Highway.

That site had several low-budget motels taken down as part of a redevelopment project, and developers have now started filing paperwork with the City of Tampa to move forward on a new restaurant.

Chick-fil-A already lists 26 locations in the wider Tampa area, company officials say they will begin construction sometime in the middle of this summer, with an opening date later in the year.
