Eater Vegas broke the news that Chick-fil-A was finally headed to Las Vegas and can now exclusively reveal where the second of their 10 possible chicken locales will land.
In a surprise takeover, Chick-fil-A will move into the Henderson location of Nacho Daddy at 9925 S. Eastern Ave., the first branch of the Tony Hsieh-backed casual restaurant chain and a former Zappos employee favorite when the company was still based in the neighborhood.
Located on the northeast corner of the Southfork Pointe Commercial Center, the drive-through Chick-fil-A will host a 4,544-square-foot restaurant on 1.3 acres. Rather than work with the existing building, they will be tearing the entire 7,500-square-foot Nacho Daddy to the ground.
Like their first proposed location, just south of the Galleria at Sunset, it is expected to be open 24 hours, every day except Sunday. The size is comparable to the Eastgate Plaza site and they've also penciled in plans to include an indoor play area and outdoor seating.
No timetable for the closure or demolition has yet been revealed as the project begins its journey through the City of Henderson approval process. You can sample your first taste of the Chick-fil-A experience in late 2016.
