New jobs are on the way for the city of Harlingen. A second stand-alone Chick-fil-A is set to open its doors today. People are already in line to get in. The new restaurant is expected to create nearly one hundred jobs. Chick-fil-a representatives stopped by our News Center 23 bureau in McAllen to tell us what’s to come.
Adriana Desiderio, PR says, “Since there’s that one kind of nearby, it’ll alleviate some of the intense traffic that that one creates, because it’s very busy. And so then now people on that side of town will have a Chick-fil-A to go to and it won’t be as hectic as the other one. And this one has an amazing parking lot.”
As part of their celebration, Chick-fil-A is inviting the community to donate new and gently-used children’s books at the location. The new Chick-fil-A will open doors at 1814 South Sunshine Strip in Harlingen.
