GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The official groundbreaking date for one of the first free-standing Chick-fil-A’s in the state has been set.

Construction is underway at site at 1545 Edgeknoll Drive, near the  M-6 and Kalamazoo Avenue.  The ceremonial groundbreaking is slated for Thursday, August 25, at 2:00 p.m, according to a release from CP Communications. This location is the second free-standing Chick-fil-A under construction in the state.

The groundbreaking will be a private event consisting of local community leaders and Chick-fil-A representatives.

The restaurant is expected to open in the first quarter of 2017. The restaurant is expected to create 80-90 new jobs in the area.

The project was green-lit by the Gaines Township Board of Commissioners in May.

    It probably won’t last there because Chick-fil-A promotes positivity, friendliness, being polite when dealing with customers..West Mi people are too rude and ignorant to that concept. After all Mi has been tagged the #1 state for bullying. Fact not fiction.
