Chick-Fil-A, the fast food chain known for its chicken sandwiches, continues to expand in New Jersey with the opening of a new location in Barrington this week.
The new store is located at 301 White Horse Pike, just off I-295 and will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday. According to NJ.com, this will be the franchise’s only location on the White Horse Pike.
The opening is just one of many for the Atlanta-based restaurant chain; according to their website, they have opened or will open new locations in Edison, Linden, North Brunswick and, coming later this year, Lawrenceville. The Lawrenceville store will be on Route 1, but does not have a firm opening date just later this year. Once the Lawrenceville store opens, Chick-Fil-A will have 52 stores in New Jersey.
The Barrington Store will celebrate its grand opening by feeding 100 “local heroes” with free food for one year; it will be for people who have an impact in the community. The channel also announced that it will donate $ 25,000 to Feeding America to help hungry people in the Barrington area.
According to 6 ABC Philadelphia, the new Barrington location will be open for drive-thru and local pickup, with third-party delivery scheduled to begin shortly after opening.
The company’s website says the original recipe for their signature sandwich was developed in 1964 and includes a chicken patty with two pickles on a toasted butter bun. Chick-Fil-A now has 2,600 locations nationwide.
