Lansing, Mich. — Chick-fil-A will break ground Tuesday on the first store in a series of new openings in Michigan.
Chick-fil-A will open 15 to 20 new stores within the next five years. The first freestanding building, located at 5617 W. Saginaw Highway in Lansing, will be completed this fall. The 4,971-square-foot restaurant will feature interior seating for 132 people, patio seating and two drive-thru lanes.
The second store is expected to open at Troy’s Somerset Collection by the end of the year. The remainder of the stores in the expansion will be opened at a rate of approximately three to four stores per year.
The franchise is considering locations in Kalamazoo, metro Detroit, Grand Rapids and Lansing. Chick-fil-A currently operates two stores in the state of Michigan at Detroit Metropolitan Airport and on the Oakland University campus in Rochester.
