Plant City Gets Its First Chick-fil-A
It’s about time, right? Plant City locals will now be able to visit a local Chick-fil-A.
The grand opening of a new Chick-fil-A location marks the first location to open in Plant City. Previously, if someone in Plant City craved a Chick-fil-A sandwich, they either needed to visit a Brandon location or a Lakeland store.
Plant City locals may have seen mobile Chick-fil-A locations for some time, but there weren’t yet any stores.
The new location is 1101 Goldfinch Dr. near Thonotosassa Rd., just off of I-4. Their hours will be 6:30 a.m. until 10 p.m. They are open Monday through Saturday, as with all Chick-fil-A locations.
The site used to be home for iconic Buddy Freddy’s, which had been around since the 1950’s. Buddy Freddy’s was known as a country-style buffet. The building was demolished back in May.
