Kilgore, the grand opening of your Chick-fil-A is at the beginning of June
The fast food world’s most sought after chicken sandwich and chicken nuggets are FINALLY coming to Kilgore.
Currently, if the people of Kilgore crave a fried chicken sandwich and their favorite happens to be Chick-fil-A, that means taking a trip to Longview to satisfy that craving. From Kilgore to the nearest Chick-fil-A is a good twenty minute drive from either a location on 4th Street and Loop 281, or Loop 281 and Gilmer Road, or the Longview Mall. This reader will no longer be needed when Kilgore’s own Chick-fil-A opens soon.
Over the past few months, we’ve seen Chick-fil-A expand beyond its three stand-alone locations in Tyler and two in Longview, in addition to the mall locations and downtown pop-up locations of Tyler, the UT Tyler and TJC campuses and a location in Marshall. Chick-fil-A has opened new locations in Jacksonville and most recently off I-20 in Lindale. The new Kilgore location is scheduled to open on Wednesday, June 9 at 6:30 a.m. and is located on N. Kilgore Street at Texas Highway 42.
The new location is right next to one of Kilgore’s famous oil rigs, so you can’t miss it. Another sign that you can’t miss will be the queue in the driveway. Although this line may seem intimidating, it moves quite quickly, I know from experience. Give me a 12-chip meal, potato chips for the fries and a large unsweetened tea with four Chick-fil-A sauces and I’m good to go. Yes, that might sound like a lot, but have you ever dipped their chips in this sauce? Otherwise, you are missing out.
The Kilgore location seeks to fill several open positions for employment too.
