CLIFTON PARK — Chicken sandwich chain Chick-fil-A is looking to add a location off Route 146 near Exit 9.
The town Planning Board will hear a proposal Sept. 14 to site one of the restaurants at 304 Clifton Park Center Road, currently the site of a former Pier 1 Imports retail store.
The existing building would be demolished. A new building with 5,000 square feet of restaurant space and a drive-thru would be constructed.
Another Chick-fil-A already is operating in the Capital Region but only for ticketed passengers at Albany International Airport. The next closest locations are 90 miles east in Chicopee or 140 miles west in Cicero.
The New York State Thruway Authority has said Chick-fil-A will be among the new restaurant offerings at the Thruway’s 27 service plazas as they complete a $450 million overhaul.
The fast-growing Atlanta-based company has approximately 2,700 locations and is among the largest fast-food chains in the United States.
