Rumors are running rampant that Chick-fil-A, the fast food restaurant that brings joy to those who love their sandwiches and hate to those who despise their political leanings, is coming to Downtown Summerlin. The Twitter feed LuvChickFilA blew up an old map of the shopping center opening tomorrow south of Red Rock Resort and found a location for Chick-fil-A, right there in black and white.
A couple things to consider. This map also says McDonald’s will be located next door, and that mammoth chain is not in the works for the shopping center. It also lists Gameworks, which opened in July at Town Square. Now the map was created within the past year since it includes ROC Resto Lounge, which is indeed opening in space J3.
The Chick-fil-A Website has no openings in the Las Vegas area through December. The closest location is in St. George, Utah, nearly 120 miles away. In September, a rep with the restaurant chain said Nevada is certainly under consideration. Nevada. Not just Las Vegas.
For now, you can get your Chick-fil-A fix at Central Summerlin, the religious center at 2015 S. Hualapai Way, during its Sunday, Oct. 19, Blocktober event. "The first 100 people in each main service will get FREE FOOD!!!"
UPDATE: Sad news for Chick-fil-A fans. Carrie Kurlander, the vice president, public relations for Chick-fil-A Inc. responded to Eater Vegas' inquiry about Chick-fil-A opening at Downtown Summerlin: "We are always evaluating potential new locations in the hopes of serving existing and new customers great food with remarkable service. We would very much like to serve the communities of Las Vegas, and while we are actively seeking the first few sites in Nevada, we have no locations to confirm just yet."
