FORT WAYNE, Ind. (ADAMS) – Nearly 17 years after it first opened its doors and nearly three months after it was closed for a complete rebuild, the original Jefferson Pointe Chick-fil-A restaurant will reopen with the chain’s newest design.
The reopening of the restaurant comes as Franchise Owner Tony Gibson celebrates his first opportunity to operate a Chick-fil-A. The new location is a return home for Gibson, who is a Fort Wayne native.
It will feature vintage heritage interior design which includes larger tables in a dining room featuring premium finishes including subway tile and large windows as well as a large gathering table, and a custom light fixture made from recycled Coca-Cola bottles. Other highlights include an updated two-story interactive indoor play area for children and free Wi-Fi.
Customers on the go will find an updated drive-thru system featuring expanded face-to-face ordering and an additional lane, enhancing the chain’s award-winning drive-thru service. The expanded features of the new restaurant will provide an even experience for customers with the hiring of nearly 100 new Team Members.
Gibson, his wife Erika, and their two children have planted deep roots into the Fort Wayne community, and look forward to serving Gibson’s hometown both inside and outside the restaurant.
A ribbon cutting ceremony will kick off the restaurant’s new chapter at 9:30 Monday morning.
