Burger King at 3707 State Street was dethroned last July and fast-food chain Chick-fil-A opened at that address today. Chick-fil-A is the nation’s second largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain with more than $3.58 billion in sales in 2010. The eatery has 1,540 locations in 39 states. On September 6th, 2011 The Restaurant Guy broke the news about their pending arrival. Hours are Monday – Saturday 6:30 a.m. – 10 p.m.
As has been widely reported, Chik-fil-A’s opening was partially delayed by political opposition to anti-gay rights views attributed to the chain’s corporate ownership. That controversy was the subject of another protest outside of City Hall this past Wednesday.
