Chick-fil-A To Open In Queens Center Mall This Fall


April 29, 2016 By Michael Florio

Another popular chain is coming to the Queens Center Mall.

Chick-fil-A, a fast food chain specializing in chicken sandwiches, will open in the food court in the Queens Center Mall (90-15 Queens Blvd.) this fall.

“It has been a longtime goal of ours to serve communities in New York, and we can at this time confirm the location is projected to open fall 2016,” a company spokesperson said. “We look forward to serving all of our customers delicious food in an environment of genuine hospitality.”

Chick-fil-A’s menu consists of a variety of chicken sandwiches, wraps and strips, as well as sides such as salads, French fries, chicken soup and Greek yogurt parfaits. They also serve milk shakes.

The Chick-fil-A will take over the spaces previously occupied by Taco Bell and Nathan’s, according to John Scaturro, Senior Manager of Marketing with Queens Center Mall.

“They are taking both spaces and making one large location,” he said.

This will be the first Chick-fil-A in Queens. The chain currently has three locations in New York, all in Manhattan, according to the company’s website.

“A lot of people on the East Coast have been waiting for them to open here,” Scaturro said. “We are excited that they are opening here.”

This opening continues a trend of nationally known restaurants coming to the mall. Shake Shack opened there in December and in March the Cheesecake Factory announced they will be opening a location there as well.
