Recently we told you that a new Chik-Fil-A would be moving into the space once occupied by Golden Corral on Alpine Ave., which permanently closed earlier this month.

The existing building is set to be demolished, and a new 5,000-square-foot Chik-Fil-A with drive-thru, indoor dining, area, and an outdoor patio is going in at 3461 Alpine Ave NW. The plan is to open the new Walker Chik-Fil-A  in Fall 2023. 

Chik-Fil-A to Open in Cascade Township

That's not the only new Chik-Fil-A set to open in the GR area though.

According to Grand Rapids Business Journal, a Chik-Fil-A is coming to 5528 28th St. SE, next to the Cascade Township Meijer.

The new Cascade Township Chik-Fil-A should open this winter.

How Many Chik-Fil-A Restaurants Are in Grand Rapids?

This will bring the number of Chik-Fil-A restaurants in metro Grand Rapids to six.

Currently, there are four Chik-Fil-A locations in operation:

  • 2750 E. Beltline Ave. SE in Grand Rapids
  • 545 Edgeknoll Drive SE in Grand Rapids
  • 356 Wilson Ave. NW in Walker
  • 700 54th St. SW in Wyoming

What do you think, does Grand Rapids need more Chik-Fil-A restaurants? I will say every time I drive by the E. Beltine location the drive-thru line looks INSANE.

But is there another restaurant you'd like to see open up in GR instead? A new local spot, or maybe even a chain restaurant we don't currently have in Grand Rapids?
