Henderson won't have all the clucking fun next year, as the rumors are finally confirmed: Chick-fil-A is coming to the corner of Rancho and Sahara. It will sit within easy walking distance from the Palace Station casino and hotel.
Scheduled for a 2016 arrival, the drive-thru chicken sandwich slinger will be accessed via Rancho Dr., not Sahara. It will fill out a purpose-built, 4,611-square-foot structure, about a hundred square feet larger than both the company's other forthcoming local branches.
While current renderings point to a less atheistically pleasing design concept than the chain's Henderson counterparts, the site will also feature a play area and outdoor patio seating, all shaded under awnings, with room for 32.
The front facade will add "aluminum and perforated metal panels," with painted metal strips for "a three-dimensional layered look." Brown and grey earth tones will accent a painted white frontage.
The location will be open 24-hours a day, every day except Sunday per the Chick-fil-A corporate policy. The company expects to serve 1,100 customers a day, with over 60% using a double drive-thru lane system to speed up the process. Inside, there will be enough seating for 130 guests when the project debuts sometime next year..
