Second Chick-fil-A restaurant to open on Transit Road


CHEEKTOWAGA – Cheektowaga is getting a second Chick-fil-A restaurant and it will be built in front of the Wegmans plaza at Transit and Losson Roads Supervisor Diane Benczkowski’s office announced Friday.

Cheektowaga would be the first municipality in New York State to have two Chick-fil-A locations.

“This is a very exciting announcement for Cheektowaga and the surrounding community,” Ms. Benczkowski said.  “Cheektowaga is a prime location for businesses looking to expand or move into the Buffalo-Niagara region because of our central location.  We are the second largest town in Western New York and every single day we have a large number of people passing through our town.  This announcement is yet another example of how attractive our community is for new businesses.”


The vacant 1.3 acres parcel at the northwest corner of the intersection is owned by Wegmans Food Markets Inc according to Erie County real estate records.  Details regarding a developer or site plans were not immediately released.

The first announced restaurant is currently under construction at the corner of Walden Avenue and Anderson Road.

A source with knowledge of the project says Chick-fil-A corporate overnighted development plans for the proposed restaurant Friday.
