We write about a lot of important commercial developments at Midwest Real Estate News, big manufacturing plants that will add hundreds of jobs to regions or massive mixed-use projects with the potential to transform entire city neighborhoods.
But nothing, it seems, stirs the excitement among our readers like announcements of new Chick-fil-a restaurants.
So here goes:Lexington-based NAI Isaac has helped bring a new limited-service Chick-fil-a restaurant to downtown Lexington. The new location is open on the fifth floor of that city’s Chase Tower — 201 E. Main St. for those readers close enough to swing by.
You have to be fast, though, to take advantage of this Chick-fil-a. It’s open only from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. on weekdays, with food delivered to it from Chick-fil-a’s full-service location in the nearby Fayette Mall.
If past history is any indication, our page views will jump after this post. There’s something about putting the words “Chick-fil-a” in a blog post that seems to stir up the interest. Don’t get me wrong: I do like the restaurant’s chicken sandwiches. But are they really that much better than any other fast-food chicken sandwich? And it is heresy to even pose such a question?
And why do Chick-fil-a openings inspire such excitement?
