It looks like Chick-fil-A is opening its first international store in Yorkville

Chick-fil-A is coming. And it’s closer than you think.

The Atlanta-based restaurant chain, best known for its mouthwatering fried chicken sandwiches, biscuits, and waffle fries, looks to be coming to Yorkville this summer.

The eatery is also quite well-known for stirring controversy, based on its history of funding anti-LGBT groups, some of which oppose same-sex marriage and ex-gay conversion therapy.

Still, the fast-food chain boasts a loyal following and already operates more than 2,300 outlets in the USA.

A post on Chick-fil-A’s website reads that the first Toronto location will be at 1 Bloor Street East, and multiple site maps show the eatery located right beside newly-opened McEwan’s grocery store.

In addition to the upcoming location seemingly being set, it looks like the fast-food spot’s opening date will take place this summer.

Last night, fans of the chicken hub attended a sneak-preview of the Toronto location and shared their excitement on social media about the grub that will be coming to the city “this summer.”

Chick-fil-A responded, commenting on their excitement to become neighbours (note the Canadian spelling,) and not disputing the expected date of arrival.

Almost a year ago, the eatery announced it would be opening its first set of doors in Toronto in 2019.

Since then, the city has been waiting patiently for their fried chicken fix.

The premier Toronto location will be the first stand-alone outlet outside of the United States… if you don’t count the counter at the Calgary International Airport that opened in 2014, which has since shuttered.
