Forty-five years after the first Chick-fil-A® restaurant opened in an Atlanta mall, pioneering mall food courts and introducing its signature boneless-breast-of-chicken sandwich, the chain celebrated Nebraska’s first two stand-alone locations opening in metro Omaha on Nov. 1st.
The Chick-fil-A locations are in Papillion at 8710 S. 71st Plaza and in Bellevue at 2016 Cornhusker Road. The chain awarded a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A® Meals (52 certificates) to each of the first 100 adults in line, ages 18 and older with identification – a total of more than $26,000 in free food, on Nov. 1st. Both franchised Operators: Kyle Schisler, Papillion, and Tom Deall, Bellevue, created a Fall Festival themed day of activities for campers at each of their locations complete with games, music, prizes for costumes and tent-to-tent trick-or-treating.
The two new Chick-fil-A restaurants will bring more than 150 new jobs and feature the chain’s latest interior and kitchen design along with dual drive-thru ordering lanes to expand its award-winning drive-thru service. The restaurants will open Monday through Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., serving a full breakfast menu until 10:30 a.m.
