Chick-fil-A Opening Location Close to the Sloop at 122 S. Michigan Avenue

We're sticking with the Chicken theme this week and posting about another popular fowl place moving close to the neighborhood (via Chicago Tribune):
Chick-fil-A plans to open two restaurants on Michigan Avenue next month and another six in the Chicago area next year, in an expansion that comes as many restaurants permanently close because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Atlanta-based chain in August will open in the former Purple Pig space at 500 N. Michigan Ave. and in a storefront at 122 S. Michigan across the street from the Art Institute of Chicago, the company said Wednesday.The two restaurants will create more than 140 full- and part-time jobs, according to the company.

Next year the company plans six more openings in the area, including three more in the city, according to a news release.
While 122 S. Michigan isn't technically in the Sloop - it's damn close and many of us walk right by this building all the time.

As a reminder, Chick-fil-A is also supposed to be opening up the city's first drive thru location at 1113 S. Jefferson.  We posted about that in January 2019 so no clue if and when this is happening.
