Chick-Fil-A to Open Doors in Sunset Hills
The fast food chicken joint got the OK from the Sunset Hills Board of Aldermen on Tuesday. It will be the eighth location for the chain in St. Louis.
Chick-Fil-A's chicken sandwiches are coming to Sunset Hills next year.
The fast food chain received unanimous approval from the city's Board of Aldermen to demolish and occupy a portion of the former Regions Bank building at 10722 Sunset Hills Plz., joining a Panda Express, Great Clips and Mattress Firm.
A Chick-Fil-A representative said the new restaurant should be open in 2013.
The new space will have seating for 132 customers, an indoor play area, and two lanes to accomodate a large drive-thru audience. The store would be open 6:30 a.m. - 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and closed on Sundays.
Because the property is located in the Sunset Hills Plaza, customers won't have direct traffic access to Lindbergh Boulevard or Rott Road.
The city's planning and zoning commission unanimously recommended a conditional use request for the restaurant earlier this month.
