Chick-fil-A is opening another Toronto location. And this time, it’s headed uptown.

The Atlanta-based restaurant chain, best known for its mouthwatering fried chicken sandwiches, biscuits, and waffle fries, opened its first Toronto location late this summer.

The debut of the Bloor-Yonge eatery stirred controversy and was met by massive protests, due to 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, plus the 1 Bloor Street East spot, which frequently draws lineups out the door.

And now, the restaurant is hiring for a new opening at Yorkdale Mall, slated for next year.

“Chick-fil-A is excited to serve a new community in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), opening a second franchisee-owned location at Yorkdale Shopping Centre Dine on 3 food court in 2020,” a spokesperson told Daily Hive.

“Our restaurant location in Yorkdale will bring to life the authentic Chick-fil-A experience. This includes treating all guests with care by offering great food and quick service in a welcoming environment.”

Postings for a Hospitality Team Member, Front of House Team Member, and Kitchen Team Member all went up on Job Posting site in recent days.

Job requirements include a hospitality-focused mindset, relating to others with sincere care and loyalty, leading with wisdom and humility in decision-making, and demonstrating curiosity and a growth mindset.

“Since opening the first franchisee-owned Canadian location at 709 Yonge Street in September, we’re thrilled to have served tens of thousands of Torontonians and are excited to see that guests continue to line up for our signature menu items,” said the spokesperson.

According to the postings, the eatery will be closed on Sundays.
