Chick-fil-A's largest store will only be 15 feet wide

Chick-fil-A's largest store will only be 15 feet wide”

A franchise sign is seen above a Chick-fil-A freestanding restaurant after its grand opening in Midtown, New York October 3, 2015. Chick-fil-A officials said the new location at 144 Fulton Street - next to the Fulton Center Station in Lower Manhattan - will be almost twice the size of any existing restaurant in its portfolio, at a whopping 12,000 square feet. (This staircase "will make a big difference", the company explains, because it lets customers "know there is dining upstairs.") Not only is it the world's largest Chick-fil-A, it's also, at just 15 feet wide, the narrowest.

As you might recall, when Chick-fil-A came to New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio called for a boycott because he doesn't believe in religious freedom. Even so, Cates promises it's making "the dining experience as comfortable as possible" for patrons. The 12,000-square-foot space will feature large windows, a skylight and three dining rooms that can seat 140 guests, including a roof deck with "unimpeded views of Freedom Tower", Nathaniel Cates, design manager for Chick-fil-A, said in the release. There will also be a "monumental" staircase connecting the first four levels - two of which will be dedicated to food prep, the rest to seating - meant to draw guests to the dining areas on the upper floors.

Because the store is less than half a mile from Ground Zero and the 9/11 Memorial, the design team wanted to find a way to respectfully pay homage to the location's significance.

The record-breaking Chick-fil-A, located at 144 Fulton Street, is set to open in 2018. With that idea in mind, they included elements built into the front facade that "give a subtle impression of the Twin Towers".
