Chick-fil-A’s Tennessee expansion continues with a groundbreaking event soon at the site of its new East Ridge restaurant, the second of six locations the chain expects to open in Tennessee this year. It will be near the Bass Pro Shop.
Chick-fil-A representatives will join community leaders at the site of the chain’s East Ridge location at 639 Camp Jordan Parkway at Jordan Crossing in Chattanooga. The event will include details about the new location, the new owner and operator, Heath Kyle and future hiring opportunities.
Projected to open later this spring, the new 4,999-square-foot East Ridge restaurant will offer indoor seating for 120 with additional patio seating for 12 as well as a two-story playground for children. The interior will feature the chain’s heritage restaurant interior design that showcases handmade, authentic materials for a vintage-inspired interior, including a large gathering table made from reclaimed wood, subway tiles, and a light fixture made from recycled Coca-Cola bottles.
Two drive-thru ordering lanes will enhance the chain’s award-winning drive-thru service. When it opens, the location is expected to create upwards of 85 new jobs.
