Glendale has a new drive-thru Chick-fil-A opening this week.
The Atlanta-based fast-food chain located at 5201 N. Port Washington Road off Interstate Highway 43, will open Friday, Oct. 14, for drive-thru only from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Guests can order food in-person or on the Chick-fil-A app.
The restaurant is bringing approximately 120 full- and part-time jobs to Glendale, according to a news release from the company. This location joins more than 10 other Chick-fil-A restaurants in the Milwaukee area.
The restaurant will have an off-duty police patrol on opening day to mitigate traffic. In anticipation of the opening, Chick-fil-A has created a traffic plan where right lane traffic heading south on Port Washington Road will be for Chick-fil-A customers only.
Before opening this year, Chick-fil-A attempted to come to Glendale in 2019 but was met with a negative recommendation from the plan commission over traffic concerns.
The restaurant is offering two seasonal fall items, the Autumn Spice Milkshake and the Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwich. These items are available nationwide through Nov. 12, while supplies last.
Ahead of the opening, Chick-fil-A partnered with Feeding America to make a $25,000 donation to a local food bank to fight against hunger.
