Chick-Fil-A Officially Set to Open on Thursday, January 21st at 1106 S. Clinton

We've written about the popular chicken chain Chick-fil-a opening in the Sloop and it sounds like they're about ready for their debut:

I’m reaching out with some exciting news regarding the new Chick-fil-A restaurant in in South Loop: Chick-fil-A South Loop, located at 1106 S Clinton St., will officially open for business on Thursday, Jan. 21.   

Kareem Edwards, the local franchise owner of Chick-fil-A South Loop, is looking forward to welcoming and serving the community and providing job opportunities to approximately 100 full- and part-time Team Members in the South Loop area. “I am thrilled to have the opportunity to fill the hearts, souls and stomachs of Team Members and Guests in the South Loop area by offering an environment where each person feels welcome and celebrated,” said Edwards.

Chick-fil-A South Loop will open for drive-thru service and mobile curbside pickup from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Third-party delivery will also be offered shortly after opening. I’ve included a detailed press release on Chick-fil-A South Loop and the other Chicago area openings below.

While maybe not the most exciting addition to the Sloop, they do have pretty good chicken and any business moving forward in this environment is reason for applause.  

This area of the neighborhood - west of the river - continues to become more and more oriented around national retailers.  Not a bad thing, just interesting to see.  That said it's not an easy go for these retailers on many fronts.  Just look to our post yesterday about Michael's closing up shop.

Anyway - congrats to Kareem Edwards and team and welcome to the Sloop!
