Chick-fil-A slated to open in Kyle next week

051810chickA new Chick-fil-A will open in Kyle at 5289 Kyle Center Drive.


Chik-fil-A will open its first stand-alone restaurant in Kyle with the grand opening slated to take place on May 27 at its new location on 5289 Kyle Center Drive. Anthony Baragas, a Kyle resident and a 10-year veteran of Chick-fil-A, has been chosen as the franchisee to operate the new location. The opening brings 65 new jobs to the area.

“Truett Cathy started Chick-fil-A more than 42 years ago with the aim of providing the best in freshly prepared food and customer service,” said Baragas.  “The goal remains the same for my team as we open our new Kyle restaurant.”

The new  4,287 square-foot Kyle location features a drive-thru and a children’s indoor playing areas with an interactive section for toddlers. The new restaurant will be open Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., serving breakfast until 10:30 a.m.

Chick-fil-A will celebrate the grand opening, as it did in San Marcos, by awarding a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A® Meals (52 certificates) to each of the first 100 adults in line, age 18 and older with identification, at the new Kyle restaurant. The line officially opens at 6 a.m. on May 26, with the free meal cards being awarded  May 27, sometime between 6 a.m. and 6:10 a.m. The restaurant will open for business immediately thereafter.

If there are more than 100 people by 6 a.m. on May 26, all 100 spots will be determined by a raffle. It should be noted that the line forms quickly for these events, with Chick-fil-A devotees camping in the parking lot the night before the free give-away. There is often music, dancing, games and prizes for the campers. Visit for more information and complete rules.

Chick-fil-A plans to open 78 new locations around the country with more than 15 percent of them scheduled to open in Texas.

Truett Cathy developed the original Chick-fil-A boneless breast of chicken sandwich in his 24-hour Dwarf House diner near Atlanta in the early 1960s. He opened his first Chick-fil-A restaurant in Atlanta’s Greenbriar Mall in 1967. Since then, the chain has grown to include more than 1,485 locations in 38 states and Washington DC. In December 2009, Chick-fil-A, Inc. reached $3 billion in sales, marking its 42nd consecutive year of sales growth.
