A day many of you have been waiting for... a groundbreaking for the Rochester area's first Chick-fil-A restaurant.
The owner, Alan Taylor, tells News10NBC that the opening will lead to 100 new jobs. Taylor also says Chick-fil-A gives back to the community, and he will partner with local charities.
The franchisee says although it's a national chain, the restaurants have a personal touch.
"What a lot of people don't realize is that a lot of our items are hand prepared daily, hand chopped salads that we do throughout the day, hand breaded chicken, hand spun milkshakes and you know, lemons are squeezed throughout the day for our lemonade so there is a lot of attention to what we do," Taylor says.
The new 5,056-square-foot restaurant will offer indoor seating for 120 with additional patio seating for 20 as well as a two-story playground for children.
Taylor says he hopes to open the Greece location on West Ridge Road in April, weather permitting, after the first Upstate New York Chick-fil-A opens in Cicero in February.
