New stores are coming soon, but you'll have to wait a little longer
Despite rumors circulating that the opening of a handful of new Chick-fil-A locations in Minnesota have been bumped up to this week, reps from the company confirmed via email they are actually on track to open to the public this fall.

Here's more on the what might have stirred the pot and which 'burbs are getting stores, if you're into that sort of thing.

See Also:
A publicist from the fast-food chain says that the first two of the four new Twin Cities locations will be in Coon Rapids and Maple Grove and are projected to open October 10. Stores in Apple Valley and Bloomington are projected for late October and November, respectively.

What sparked the confusion was the announcement that Chick-fil-A would be hosting some local community events to help promote the opening of the new stores. The first presentation is tonight in Apple Valley at Johnny Cake Ridge Park.  

These four stores are the first of ten that the chain is planning to eventually open in our local market over the span of the next three to five years. Though most of those locations will be in the Twin Cities metro area, the company says they are looking to go to Duluth, St. Cloud, and Rochester too.

A great company, a great employer, a great civic partner, and a great product.

Tried out their chicken years ago while on vacation, and didn't feel so good after.  Should have expected that after receiving a limp patty.  Just say no!

There is something so right about conservative apologists coming to the defense of shitty food and shittier jobs. Keep up the good work fellas!

I will NEVER let them have a dime of my money, and I will harass anyone I can into not spending their money with this company.

Good for fast food, if possible. Also, have amazing customer service. I have had nothing but superb experiences there. With that said, I personally don't care about the politics surrounding the food I eat....as I support personal freedom and enterprise.  Some people, apparently don't know what America is about, and that is differing views. I don't agree with theirs, and that's 100% fine.

I have heard that Chick-Fil-A celebrates opening new locations by giving free "chicken" for a year to the first 100 people in line at a store opening.  I would love to see some legally married gay couples get that prize.

You'd think now that gay people can get married here that they would have been dissuaded...

@DavidFoureyes There is something so right about liberal elites attacking the opinion of someone that doesn't share their own.

"Shitty Food."  Hah, you have obviously never had a sandwich from Chick- fil-A.  Keep up the commenting on things you don't know about fella!

@DavidFoureyes This coming from the the Liberal apologist who comes to the defense of people who make shitty life decisions and expect tax payers to pay for it all.

@Sheryl Cotton Harassing people who do not buy into your beliefs is not the Liberal way. Liberals believe in free thought and open-mindedness. Liberals believe that everyone should be able to express their free thought even if it goes against the status quo. Liberals believe that no one should be punished for their right to free speech. You are a bad Liberal. Also, if you do harass people who patronize Chik-fil-A, you are committing a crime. 

But the real crime is your face. Is your face on purpose? The dye job with black roots really makes you look like a trailer trash whore. Is your boyfriend named De'Andre' ? Do you buy your groceries with an EBT card?

Just Sayin'

@k2yeb If you don't agree with their views, they will call you a bigot, a racist, and a homophobe. They will also call you an asshole, a motherfucker, a dickwad, and a cocksucker. They will also call you a low-life, loser, and a Republican sympathizer. They will also accuse you of listening to Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Fox News. If you refute those claims, they will resort to their Go-To mantra: "RACIST!!!!"

Then they will run away.

@Нина Суворова Name a viable competitor that competes with them?

@Нина Суворова The location at the U of M is doing quite well. And considering that it is located on a campus of a very Liberal university, that should say something.

@Allie Haning You might want to find something healthy and positive to care about rather than....

@Allie Haning And I am sure that Chick -fil- A will cancel their future MN openings just because you are mad and told them to "Fuck Off".

@Erik Tiberius Lervold And I am sure that Chick-fil-A and their investors are now shaking in their boots because you are so not going there.

@k2yeb @DavidFoureyes Do you get irony? Last time I checked "liberal elite" was still a misnomer created by idiots to categorize people that value, well, not being stupid.

If not, I'm flattered to be included I guess...despite being rather common and not terribly liberal.

@kennyX You constantly use racial slurs yet now you are pretending you aren't in anyway racist?  lol what a pathetic stupid coward you are.

@kennyX The only way the UofM could be a "liberal" university would be if it was in Mecca. Christ...it's not even the 3rd most progressive university in this state. Holy shit you're an idiot.

@k2yeb Liberals hate America. They would much rather live in Greece. Because Greece is a socialist nation and everyone who lives there has such a better life than Americans.

@MicheleBachmann I "constantly use racial slurs"? Name one time. You are just like Obama: You are a liar and a race baiter. 

j.reiter

No kennyX he means that all universities should strive to be the most progressive in the State. Bwahhhh.. talk about intolerant!

Also, yes SCSU and MN State Duluth are way more Communist than the UofM.

@DavidFoureyes Wow. You mean that there are colleges in MN that shove "cultural pluralism", diversity, and self-loathing white guilt down their student's throats more than the U of M does? That's quite surprising.
