It's official: Chick-fil-A is coming to upstate New York! After searching for the perfect locations for years and hearing how eager our fans are to have us as part of their communities, we're excited to announce that we will open our first restaurants in the Buffalo, Plattsburgh, Rochester and Syracuse areas in 2018-19.  
While we don't yet have more details to share, we are committed to continuing our upstate growth in the coming years. For now, here's a bit about us:
•Our menu items are made with fresh, simple ingredients right in our kitchens.
  • We use only whole, boneless breast of chicken, with no fillers or artificial preservatives. By the end of 2019, every Chick-fil-A restaurant will serve chicken raised with no antibiotics ever.
  • Our chicken is hand-breaded every day in each restaurant's kitchen.
  • We freshly squeeze lemons for our lemonade.
  • We hand-chop and prepare all of our salads fresh daily.
  • Our creamy milkshakes are hand-spun. 
•Chick-fil-A franchise owner/operators live and work in the community in which their restaurants serve and are highly involved in the day-to-day operations, as most only oversee one location.
•Creating a strong and valuable workplace experience for team members is important to Chick-fil-A franchise owner/operators, offering opportunities for leadership development, promotions that lead to management roles, competitive wages and respect for work-life balance.
•Chick-fil-A provides leadership and scholarship opportunities for restaurant team members. In fact, Chick-fil-A has awarded $36 million in scholarships over the years and almost $9 million in 2016 alone.
Chick-fil-A's franchise owner/operators engage with and support local communities through Spirit Night fundraisers, charitable donations and other involvement with causes that matter to their community and guests.
