Chick-fil-A in Fairfield: With final plans approved, anticipated opening date set

Fairfield City Council unanimously approved Monday the final building plans for a new Chick-fil-A.

The revised concept plan and final development plan is for a 4,800-square-foot restaurant that would sit on a 1.5-acre lot in front of Meijer off South Gilmore Road at Casual and Kolb drives. It’s anticipated the restaurant will open in the fall of 2019.

The development will be part of a larger proposed retail center.

Last month, Allan Wiley, an engineer with Akron-based GBC Design, spoke on behalf of Chick-fil-A and said restaurant officials have been “looking at this property for a little while now.”

The land is a part of the Meijer-Gilmore Planned Unit Development.

Meijer was built on 30 acres in 1995 and left the 2.5 acres parcel as dedicated green space. That green space was used as a screen to hide the building and the parking lot.
