Chick-fil-A, Inc. Key Developments

Chick-fil-A Will Never Go Public

Chick-fil-A, Inc. has no plans to launch a IPO. Truett Cathy, current President and Chief Executive Officer of Chick-fil-A does not wish to go public and for now, Chick-fil-A remains a family-owned business.

Chick-fil-A Plans to Open Two Restaurants for 2016

Chick-fil-A announced that, it will open a new restaurant in early 2016 near 120th Street and West Dodge Road. The chain also has plans for another location, at Sorensen Park Plaza, scheduled to open in late 2016. The 4,730-square-foot West Dodge store is expected to open by mid-February. The restaurant, under construction just in front of Costco, will feature a play area, double drive-thru and an eight-person gathering table made from reclaimed wood. Up to 100 people will be hired to staff the new restaurant.

Chick-Fil-A Announces the Opening an Outpost in New York City

Chick-fil-A is opening an outpost in New York City on October 3, 2015, marking a high-profile milestone in its push to become a bigger national player. The Atlanta-based chain known for its fried chicken sandwiches with pickles has been stepping up its expansion and is opening nearly 100 new locations a year. The chain now has more than 1,900 stores in 42 states, although its heaviest presence is in the South. Among the areas the company doesn't have as many stores are New England and the Northwest. Its stores are closed on Sundays, and the New York City location will not be an exception. Over the next two years, the company plans to open several more locations in New York City. The company already has a location on the campus of New York University, but the menu is limited. Even when Chick-fil-A opens in new markets, the company says transplants from its regional strongholds tend to help generate excitement for its offerings. That is the case for Amanda Haas, a 25-year-old administrative assistant in New York City who grew up in Texas.
