Chick-fil-A opens its 10th Las Vegas area location at the 215 and Las Vegas Boulevard with a roster of new COVID-19 protocols to prevent the spread of the disease.
The location, first revealed back in 2016, sits 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.
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. This location also features mobile ordering through the Chick-fil-A app and DoorDash.
This location also worked with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to create a traffic management plan so diners encounter a smooth flow in and out of the restaurant.
Instead of a camp out where the first 100 in line landed free food, the restaurant is providing free Chick-fil-A meals for a year to “100 local heroes making an impact throughout the Las Vegas community.”
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, 7010 Las Vegas Blvd. S., 702-384-0080. Open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.
