In Dauphin County, a drive-thru-only Chick-fil-A is in the works, as are plans for another.
“We’re looking forward to being a part of these communities. Chick-fil-A said in a statement that it hoped to give new customers “great meals in an environment of real friendliness.”
The Lower Paxton Township Board of Supervisors has approved preliminary land development plans for a drive-thru only restaurant at 5101 Jonestown Road, according to township spokeswoman Lee Anne Urban.
Three drive through lanes, outdoor dining with walk up window and 34 parking spaces are all included in the 2,900 square foot style restaurant that Chick fil A plans to establish in the place of Arby’s. Diners and those picking up their delivery orders would both use the walkup window if everything goes according to plan.
At 3951 Union Deposit Road in Susquehanna Township, a 4,758 square foot restaurant with a drive-thru has been proposed by Chick-fil-A for a 62-seat restaurant with a drive-thru. Approximately three miles away from the Swatara Township, Pennsylvania Chick-fil-A, which was established in 2016.
According to Susquehanna Township Assistant Manager Betsy Logan, the township’s planning commission will meet on June 27 to go through the restaurant’s final land development plans. According to her, the commission just received a proposal from the restaurant’s developers regarding their plans.
A Chick-fil-A restaurant with three drive-thru lanes was announced for the Lower Allen Commons in Lower Allen Township earlier this year. The property is near the Capital City Mall, off Routes 11/15n, and houses the area’s first Trader Joe’s supermarket shop.
Founded in 1967 by Truett Cathy, Chick-fil-A consistently rates as one of the finest fast food businesses for customer service. For its chicken sandwiches and other items like waffle cut fries, nuggets and milkshakes, the establishments draw huge lineups of customers.
Eat Mor Chikin is the company motto, which is a reference to the Holstein cow symbol. Restaurants celebrate “Cow Appreciation Day” in July to show their appreciation for cows. Following the owner’s Christian convictions, the eateries are closed on Sundays.
