Chick-fil-A plans Apple Valley location

Chick-fil-A could be coming to Apple Valley’s Cedar Avenue corridor.

The Georgia-based restaurant chain that specializes in breaded chicken sandwiches has submitted a plan to the city for a drive-through restaurant at Cedar Avenue and 153rd Street.

Last week the city’s Planning Commission reviewed the restaurant’s proposal for a 4,585-square-foot building at the southeast corner of the Cedar and 153rd intersection. The proposed restaurant includes seating for about 100 people, a drive-through and a 38-space parking lot.

Pending city approval of the development plans, Chick-fil-A is looking to begin construction as early as next spring.

Chick-fil-A has about 1,700 restaurants in the United States, with Minnesota locations at the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, the University of Minnesota campus in Minneapolis and Minnesota State University-Mankato.

In the Twin Cities, Chick-fil-A is also looking to build restaurants in Coon Rapids and Maple Grove.
