Let the page views rise: Chick-fil-a is coming to downtown Lexington

Pretty good sandwich -- but is the Chick-fil-a experience over-hyped?

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?

    As to page views, would the delivery option have anything to do with this? Real estate agents have no time to eat and are at their desks constantly if not at a showing or at a property. We have no time to take or break or wait for the lunch line to clear at any nearby restaurant. Delivery of food would make it possible to eat during the day. Anyway, that is my guess.
