It's been a few years since Chick-fil-A first opened a Western New York location in Cheektowaga on Walden Ave. The second location was also in Cheektowaga, at Transit and Losson. Now, it appears the first southtowns Chick-fil-A will be on the way,.

According to WIVB, Chick-fil-A submitted a sketch plan to the Hamburg Town Board on Wednesday evening for a drive-thru location at 3464 McKinley Parkway in Hamburg. The site was formerly a Toys R' Us and now a Raymour & Flanigan. The next step is to introduce a site plan.

The hope is to be approved in time to open by the fall of 2022. This would be the first Chick-fil-A in the southtown region of Western New York.

A full submission by the restaurant chain is expected in March but once approved the ball will be rolling to get it open by the fall of next year.

I remember taking road trips with friend and we would always stop at the Chick-fil-A in Erie, PA because there were none here. Now, in just a few short years, we will likely have three of them!
