Chick-fil-A Plans To Expand in Michigan With 15-20 Units

by Katie Lee

Lansing, Mich. — Chick-fil-A’s long-awaited Michigan expansion will officially get under way on April 19, 2016, with a groundbreaking event at the site of its new Lansing restaurant — the first of 15 to 20 locations the chain expects to open in the state within the next 5 years.

Projected to open this fall, the new 4,971-square-foot restaurant will mark the chain’s first stand-alone Michigan store, to be located at 5617 W. Saginaw Hwy.

Along with the Lansing location, Chick-fil-A is expected to open a restaurant inside Troy’s Somerset Collection by year end. Over the next 5 years, Chick-fil-A plans to open three to four new Michigan restaurants annually and is considering locations in Kalamazoo, metropolitan Detroit, Grand Rapids and Lansing. Chick-fil-A currently has licensed locations at Detroit Metropolitan Airport and on the campus of Oakland University.

Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A, Inc. is a family owned and privately held restaurant company founded in 1964 by S. Truett Cathy. Chick-fil-A has more than 2,015 restaurants in 43 states and Washington, D.C. For more information, visit
