Local fans have grown accustomed to the mega-chain’s reluctance to provide timely updates of its future plans, but Chick-fil-A will officially begin serving sandwiches and waffle fries on Thursday, January 30, at the front entrance of the Planet Hollywood Resort.
Creating the sixth local outpost since 2017, the company’s website reports the opening date, while holding back information on operating hours. Early job postings advised candidates they will be working from 10 a.m. to 2 a.m., but not on Sundays.
Taking over the former home of Pink’s Hot Dogs and anticipating big business at its first move to the Strip, an innovative outdoor layout and design will help speed up the walk-up ordering process.
Further along Las Vegas Boulevard and now featuring an unmissable new sign, a built-from-scratch Chick-fil-A will eventually join a Starbucks at the corner of the boulevard and George Crockett Road. The location is convenient for divers arriving from California, or on the way to and from McCarran International Airport. The footprint is also a short mile from the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets.
Paperwork filed back in 2018 allocated an estimated $1.1 million in construction costs for the build. The location has never been publicly acknowledged by the parent company.
Also still slowly in the works, a drive-thru at the 3883 Flamingo retail center, a convenient short walk to the east of the Palms resort, and a westside move to replace a former Claim Jumper at the corner of Charleston Boulevard and Fort Apache.
