BOSTON (CBS) – Boston will officially have its first Chick-fil-A in a few weeks.
“We are pleased to confirm that we will be opening a Chick-fil-A restaurant in Boston at 569 Boylston St. this winter,” the company said in a statement to WBZ-TV. “We look forward to getting involved in the community and serving all of our diners delicious food in a genuinely hospitable environment.”
Back Bay Location was planned for more than two years.
An earlier attempt by Chick-fil-A to open in Boston was abandoned because of a controversy over the company’s donation to political organizations that oppose same-sex marriage. In 2012, the late Boston Mayor Tom Menino sent a letter to Chick-fil-A, stating that the company had “no place for discrimination” in the city.
Massachusetts already has Chick-fil-A restaurants in Attleboro, Brockton, Burlington, Hyannis, Chicopee, Dedham, Framingham, Hanover, Marlboro, Methuen, Peabody, Plymouth, Seekonk, Westboro, Woburn and Worcester.
