Chick-Fil-A Remodel

Saturday, February 9, 2019
Chick-Fil-A will close the store on February 9th 2019 to remodel the restaurant to provide better service to our raving fans. The remodel will be a seven week strategic investment plan with a "Grand Re-Opening" by the end of March 2019.
Prior to the Christmas holiday the operator was notified about the upcoming plans to remodel the 15 year old restaurant. The restaurant has served the Elizabethtown community very well over the years, but all good things can be improved upon, and the remodel will provide much needed changes and updates to support our guests. 
"We're all very excited for this upcoming remodel to our restaurant. We are very blessed by our unbelievable customers and we want to create a space to honor them and to ease the experience of dining at Chick-Fil-A" said Chris  Flanagan, Operator - Elizabethtown Chick-Fil-A. 
While the restaurant is closed, please feel free to contact the HR Director, Barbara Lally at 270-300-4896 with any questions. We will do our best to notify the community with any changes on the remodel as well as posting updates on our FB page, Chick-fil-A Elizabethtown. 
Truett Cathy: In His Own Words: 
Quoted by Truett Cathy during his more than 80 years of business and life. 
On Priorities 
"I'd like to be remembered as one who kept my priorities in the right order. We live in a changing world, but we need to be reminded that the important things have not changed. I have always encouraged my restaurant operators and team members to give back to the local community. We should be about more than just selling chicken, we should be a part of our customers' lives and the communities in which we serve." 
(Eat Mor Chiken: Inspire More People) 
We will miss seeing our regular customers while the remodel is underway, but just like with families, the reunion will be a wonderful celebration when the doors re-open in March!
