Some great news for the denizens of New York City… or at least some of the less woke ones. Chic-fil-A, the makers of some of the tastiest chicken sandwiches this side of Heaven, will be opening up a new outlet on W. 43rd and Eighth Ave. in the Big Apple. It’s part of a refurbishment project for an existing building and they will share the space with a few other businesses. You can almost smell the chicken (and the inevitable protests) already.

Chick-fil-A will be making its appearance in Times Square later this spring. The chain, known for its “Eat mor chikin” billboards and cow mascots, has leased a space that is part of The Hive on the southwest corner of West 43rd Street at 675 Eighth Ave.
The Hive is a three-building renovation underway that includes 303 W. 42nd St. which is next to and wraps around the rear of the Duane Reade on the northwest corner of Eighth Avenue.
The chicken outlet will be opposite the Westin Times Square across Eighth Avenue.
You just know this is going to turn into a clustercluck, if you’ll pardon the phrase. But I would suggest that this is a phenomenon that only applies to new franchise locations. Allow me to explain.
