LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—Chick-Fil-A is back in business in Lafayette. The chicken giant opened its brand new restaurant Thursday morning. Construction on the new building started in August.
The restaurant's new location is on the corner of Creasy Lane and South Street, just a ways down from its old location. The old location closed on Monday.
Chick-Fil-A officials told News 18 the new restaurant is at least 800 feet larger than the previous building. It also has a larger parking lot and two-lane drive thru.
