The Southern restaurant chain known for its boneless chicken breast sandwiches served with a pickle slice and waffle fries is coming to Lansing very soon.

The next two restaurants will be at the Somerset Collection in Troy and in Lansing, where Chick-fil-A is building a stand alone operation.  Both stores are expected to open in the fall.

On Tuesday, the company plans to hold a ceremonious ground breaking ceremony at 5617 W. Saginaw Highway in Lansing.  There, a 4,971 square foot restaurant will offer dining room seating, a patio and drive through lanes.

In addition to more restaurants in Lansing and metro Detroit, the company said it is seeking to open in Kalamazoo and Grand Rapids, and aims to open three or four restaurants in Michigan a year.  Here's more information from the Lansing State Journal.
