Chick Fil A’s West Mckinney Gate Opening Ceremony
We are excited to announce the opening of our new West McKinney Chick-fil-A restaurant. The opening ceremony will be on December 14, 2011 with a ribbon cutting at 11:00 a.m. and a community lunch starting at 11:30 a.m. The ceremony will be hosted by our local radio and TV personalities and dignitaries. Food will be available from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and the community lunch will continue until 2:30 p.m. The best way to get to the ceremony is by car, but there will be several convenient parking lots around the restaurant. In the interest of safety, we encourage everyone to take a ride-share or taxi. We will also be having meet and greets before and after the ceremony. So if you are coming from further away and need a ride, please let us know as soon as possible so we can have someone available for you.
The address for the new West Mckinney Chick Fil A is:
3300 W. Mckinney Ave, Mckinney, TX 75070
We look forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces and many more new faces on the 14th. Thank you for your continued support!

The company says that it plans to open 50 percent of its restaurants in the next five years. Already it has developed a distinctive new identity, including a logo that is simple and modern. It says that a major part of its new branding stems from the fact that in-store operations have been implemented at all levels of the business, to make them more efficient.
The restaurant’s design has also been given a fresh look, and the building and walls have been painted. There are specially-designed lights which give a glow to the entrance from the outside. On top of that, because it is a privately owned company, Chick-fil-A has complete control over its operations. The company decides on special features, such as service standards that encourage a quick turnaround of customers’ orders, and how employees will be trained. Furthermore, the company is able to maintain a consistent quality throughout its locations.

The company has already opened a restaurant in Sugar Land, Texas and plans to open several more in Houston. The company says that it will use the same model there as it has used in other major cities, such as Dallas and Washington DC. It has also been successful in opening new restaurants in states across the nation.
Chick-fil-A is known for the high customer service and the quality of food it serves. The company owners have frequently commented that the restaurants are blessed to be able to serve customers with a positive, friendly attitude.
The chain also appears to employ a very low number of franchisees, partially responsible for this strong level of customer service. Many franchisees appear to share their conscience, passion and enthusiasm for the business with employees and customers through their approach to work.
The company encourages customers to eat at a restaurant location, rather than purchasing products from the drive thru. It states, “”Because we believe people who work in restaurants deserve the full menu experience, our goal is to have 80% of our sales in restaurants and 20% through carry-out.”” The company also credits this policy with being able to keep employee turnover low.
