The big problem Chick-fil-A is causing in one major city

This city wants to turn its Chick-fil-A into a drive-thru only model


Charlotte, NC’s zoning board unanimously approved making one local Chick-fil-A drive-thru only on Thursday after customers started a petition in response to the chain’s long wait times and disruption to local traffic.

The proposal would tear down an existing Chick-fil-A and rebuild it as a drive-thru-only location. The next step is for the proposal to be brought to the City Council for a final vote.

If passed, the owner of the property is willing to contribute $70,000 to new traffic signals; the entire project is expected to take six months.
