"Welcome to Henderson" is the official, written stamp of approval for Chick-fil-A issued by the City of Henderson Community Development Department. Scheduled for a June 11 Planning Commission meeting final vote, Chick-fil-A has already complied with a round of changes by the City and in some cases exceeded their requests.
Located within the Eastgate Plaza commercial center, the fast casual, chicken sandwich maestros will create a 4,544-square-foot restaurant with an expected-to-be very busy drive-thru. Never in any doubt of being approved, they will operate in an appropriately zoned area, far from any residential developments.
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.
Design aficionados will note the "Grecian Ivory" finish with "Studio Taupe" used as an accent stucco color. Stone veneer will featured around the entrances and the drive-thru will be completed in a "Coronado Stone Pro-Ledge Crossroad style."
Once approved, the company will demolish the existing, on-site, abandoned Nevada First Bank building and begin work on the 46,598-square-foot lot.
Still at issue, whether the first Chick-fil-A in Nevada will be open 24 hours. The company cites a round-the-clock Buffalo Wild Wings at the nearby Galleria at Sunset as a neighborhood precedent.
Also to be revealed, if this location will offer items from Chick-fil-A's very own secret menu. Random Chick-fil-A's in the Southwest are mythically known to offer a blueberry cheesecake milkshake, chicken quesadillas and a fried chicken club sandwich if a guest finds the right, knowledgeable server, in the right unannounced restaurant.
