The very first time I had the pleasure of eating a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich, I thought to myself, wow, this is absolutely delicious!

My wife and I live in Okemos and we go to the Chick-fil-A restaurant on Grand River at least once every other week and order take out.

Not only is Chick-fil-A's food so tasty and mouth watering delicious, their service is outstanding as well.

Here's some good news for residents in Flint Township, Chick-fil-A is coming your way very soon.

Here's what has to say:

Chick-fil-A was recently approved for their site plans to open a standalone restaurant on 3140 Miller Road, between Austins Parkway and South Ballenger Highway, for sometime next year.

Currently, Sonic stands in the exact same location as to where the new Chick-fil-A restaurant will take over sometime next year.

Flint Township has worked over time trying to get this approved, and now we can tell you, it's a done deal.

Tracey Tucker, who happens to be the Economic Enhancement Director for Flint Township has really worked hard on this new venture. adds:

“We’re excited,” said Tucker, who has worked in her role for 15 years. “We’re very grateful that they have chosen our community. I think they are going to be great community partners and that’s their philosophy that their franchisees are involved in the community.”

With that in mind, let me just tell you that Chick-fil-A was most recently named America's favorite restaurant for the eighth straight year, according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index. (

Flint Township residents will be really excited to see a new Chick-fil-A in their area in the coming future.

Currently, Michigan has close to 20 Chick-fil-A's open for all Michiganders to enjoy!
