Chick-fil-A Opening Wheaton Restaurant

For those of you who have traveled or lived in the southern states and crave a delicious, juicy, Chick-fil-A sandwich, you’ll love this news! Chick-fil-A is opening its first Chicagoland location here in DuPage County, or more specifically, in Wheaton, just east of the Danada shopping area.

The restaurant, currently under-construction is located at the northeast corner of Butterfield Road (Rt. 56) and Danada Square East Loop Road. The Chick-fil-A occupies the land where until recently a building housing Grady’s American Grill once stood. The Grady’s building had been home to many restaurants in the past ten years, all of which seemed to struggle. That building has since been razed to make room for Chick-fil-A.

Chick-fil-A is famous for their tender, juicy, pressure-cooked breaded chicken. The chain of restaurants have done increasingly well and expansion has finally extended into a few northern states. Until now, you would have had to venture to Bloomington, IL or Racine, WI to get a taste of the southern-style chicken staple.

Additional restaurants are set to open in Aurora and Orland Park this year. The Wheaton location is expected to open by October 2010.
