First revealed back in 2016, when the idea of a Chick-fil-A restaurant headed to Las Vegas Boulevard was still considered a novelty, the chicken kings are almost ready to debut a 10th local outpost, featuring a couple of tweaks for a COVID-19 world.
Located at the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and George Crockett Road, close to I-215, McCarran International Airport, and a mile from the Las Vegas South Premium Outlets, the restaurant sits on the same parcel as a recently launched Starbucks.
Currently hiring and officially announcing a July arrival, the 4,607-square-foot location recently doubled the size of its drive-thru lanes and removed the planned indoor playground, a growing trend expected to spread through the fast-casual dining world,
Locally, Chick-fil-A outposts that have temporarily closed indoor dining spaces and re-assigned staff members outdoors, personally taking drive-thru orders to expedite the process.
Originally hoping to attract drivers on the way to and from the airport, the new focus will be on California motorists who now comprise the majority of weekend visitors to the Strip.
Opening hours are chosen by individual operators for each location, and have not been posted for this expansion.
Yet another location remains in the works, replacing the demolished Claim Jumper at the corner of Charleston Boulevard and Fort Apache Road on the westside. A projected completion date has not been posted.
Chick-fil-A also has a location on Las Vegas Boulevard on the Strip in front of the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood Resort.
