AVONDALE — Chick-fil-A is bringing its chicken sandwiches and waffle fries to Avondale.
The fast food chain is opening an outpost in the New China Buffet spot at Addison Street and Elston Avenue, according to Ald. Carlos Ramirez-Rosa’s 35th Ward office.
The Avondale restaurant is expected to open in the spring, a Chick-fil-A spokesperson said.
Crews were seen demolishing New China Buffet this week to make way for the fast food joint.
Chick-fil-A is building the restaurant within existing zoning parameters, meaning the company doesn’t need aldermanic approval, according to Ramirez-Rosa’s office.
The chain was issued a city building permit at the end of October for $850,000, city records show.
Once open, the Avondale Chick-fil-A will be the company’s 10th location in Chicago, according to the company’s website.
