By late 2016 or early 2017, Nevada will have its very first Chick-fil-A. The fast food restaurant officially announced that Chick-fil-A will open at the Eastgate Plaza commercial center in Henderson just south of the Galleria at Sunset.

And that’s not all. Over the next five years, Chick-fil-A plans eight to 10 additional locations in the Las Vegas area.

While Chick-fil-A didn’t offer much more information on that first location in Henderson Eater Vegas can share the the chicken sandwich maestros will create a 4,544-square-foot restaurant with an expected-to-be very busy drive-thru.

Inside, 1,354 square feet has been allocated to the dining area, offering 120 seats and a playground, plus there will be 340 square feet of shaded, outdoor patio space. Smart upgrades proposed by the City include enhanced landscaping, adding more small trees and installing eight bicycle racks.

Chick-fil-A wants you to know that "menu items are made with fresh, simple ingredients right in our kitchens." The chain uses real lemons squeezed for the lemonade and shakes made from scratch. Even the chicken uses breast meat with no fillers or additives, each hand-breaded every day. By 2018, Chick-fil-A plans to serve only chicken raised without antibiotics. And those salads are chopped from scratch every day.

This franchise will most likely have kid’s or family nights.
