Chick-fil-A is looking to build a second restaurant in Walnut Creek.
The company recently submitted plans to the City of Walnut Creek for a restaurant in the Citrus Plaza shopping center on Oak Grove Rd., near Ygnacio Valley Rd.
The proposed 5,240-square-foot restaurant would replace the existing 8,276-square-foot Bank of America building.
The restaurant will offer dine-in and take-out services only. No drive-thru window is proposed at this location.
The project also includes modifications to the site layout, new landscaping and building signage.
The plans still have to be approved by the city, which could take several months.
Several months? That isn’t Concord. Also that lot will be much better than wedging it into the Willows and their traffic.
Concord always makes it painful for new businesses to move here. That’s a big part of why there are so many abandoned buildings in town/
I wish Concord would make it as hard on the transits and bums to come to the city.
An look how well Concord evaluated traffic problems starbucks would cause at Treat n Clayton Rd.
There were a number of spot on predictions here on Claycord.
.. imho …without a drive through I don’t think they will see the sales numbers they need … there was a McD’s proposd a few years ago across the street and the local neighborhood was quite vocal against it – McD’s pulled out.,,, Denica’s didn’t make it either, Carl’s before that
How about putting Chick-fil-A at Concord’s Kmart Clayton Rd. that has been closed for years or what’s left at the Staples, CVS shopping center at Clayton Rd. and Treat
Nobody in their right mind would want to open a business in Concord.
Those lucky Chick-fil-A neighbors!
Just think how lovely it will be to open your front door
The aroma of frying chicken, each day you’ll smell it more!
And a charming hint of waffle fries wafting in the skies
When you think it’s through, good luck to you…
Look out here comes 5 Guys!
5 guys is disgusting crap..
Yes… but it rhymes!
Isn’t Starbird already right there?
yes… and they aren’t doing well either
Starbird is in a completely different shopping center…and they do s good chicken strip….
Starbird is across the street in the same shopping center as Whole Foods. Ridiculous parking lot to enter and exit. Plucked chicken is okay but don’t try to find parking there either during lunch time. Not have a drive thru would be the same as Panda Express. Just catering to the week day lunch folks.
I’ve been going to the one near me every week, and while it’s good, I have to admit I’m getting tired of it. There’s literally only 4 things on the menu… chicken sandwich, chicken nuggets, chicken strips, and chicken salad.
I do appreciate they give you the option to have potato chips instead of fries with the meal. Was getting tired of their fries.
It good, but like In and Out Burger, not a lot of variety. After a while, it’s like… meh
I agree with Winston, Concord is impossible to do business with.
So Chick-Fil -A is building new restaurants in W C and Concord. Let see which one opens first. I’m putting my on money W C.
ugh. I miss Nob Hil/.Raleys
We need quality, healthy food restaurants not more fast junk food in our obese society
More fast food junk taking up space.
Yeah … because we are not sick enough or fat enough … why not just build junkfood drones and deliver this toxic crapola direct to all. Then we would not even have to leave the feeding dwelling.
“Let food be thy medicine”
Well, how about an Olive Garden? 🤣
I mean if anything can survive in Citrus it’s chik fil a but that place is a dead zone. Maybe the Ygnacio Valley students can keep it afloat. But if Starbucks couldn’t work on treat this doesnt look good.
Both banks closed. The grocery closed. I thought they were going to build apartments
Starbucks is so overrated, honestly I don’t get it how people are so addicted to that stuff.
Pete’s is so weak and never hot, you cannot call it coffee. Starbucks is headed in that direction with all the woke workers who do not know a thing about Coffee and are unwilling to fix it, all you get is back talk.
We are sheep to the marketing wolves. Incapable of forming our own opinions. Yet still adamant that it was an autonomous decision. “I don’t like Starbucks bc of marketing. I get a flat white there so I don’t even get the froo froo stuff. It’s just really good.”
Forgot to mention when Starbucks first started out nobody liked it they were about to file for bankruptcy and then the owner decided to double the prices and magically everybody started liking it figured it must be good stuff it was that expensive.
And the rest is stupid history of that garbage
The neighbors would not want Ygnacio Valley High students coming down that way, as YVHS which sits just over the Concord border is the designated high school for most of Concord’s Monument Blvd. area, which is why those in that part of Walnut Creek should be grateful that MDUSD made the decision to build Northgate right at this time 50 years ago, as Northgate was built to relieve MAJOR OVERCROWDING at YVHS in the early 1970s, whxih some believe was a mistake, as instead of building Northgate, they could have just done a boundary shift and send some students over to Pleasant Hill High in south Pleasant Hill which was forced to shut down in 1980 because of low enrollment, as they could have just done a boundary shift.
However I am sure that most or not all families in that part of Walnut Creek would want YVHS as their designated high school today with the major sociological changes that have transpired in its current boundaries (especially the Monumebt Blvd. area) since the 1960s and 1970s.
Got news for you ….Northgate is just as bad now in different ways.
Hola amigos.. ¿Están hablando de nosotros?
There is another school located on Mitchell that the students leave the campus to buy lunch. It looks like almost the entire student body has to leave the school to get lunch every day. I bet most would walk to chik fil a for lunch.
As fast food goes, CFA is a cut above.
They keep it simple and do everything consistently.
Check their menu:
I’m sorry..is this location not in Walnut Creek?
Here’s the correct answer “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO”.
Never will I eat that slop. Woke as can be.
