Chick-fil-A set to open next week in downtown Little Rock



Little Rock, Arkansas – Next week, a new fast-food restaurant is set to open on Broadway Street in downtown Little Rock.

According to a news release, the drive-thru-only Chick-fil-A on the southeast corner of West Seventh Street and Broadway Street will be open to the public beginning at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, July 26.

This location joins more than 20 other Chick-fil-A restaurants in the central Arkansas community. This is the first downtown location of the chain.

This location and its approximately 115 full- and part-time employees will be operated by Ben Ackley, a Little Rock native.

“My goal is to make Chick-fil-A Seventh and Broadway a home away from home in the heart of Little Rock,” Ackley said in a statement. “I hope to create a welcoming environment and serve the families in our community with genuine hospitality and remarkable service.”

This location will offer carry-out and curbside service in addition to the drive-thru option.
