Chick-fil-A announced on Wednesday that the American fast food chain will open its first franchisee-owned restaurant outside of the U.S. in Toronto in 2019.
The company says it plans to open 15 stores over the next five years in the GTA, creating 50 to 75 new jobs per location.
Chick-fil-A is famously known for its hand-breaded chicken sandwiches, which are pressure-cooked and served on a toasty, buttered bun with two pickles. The company plans to use Canadian sourced 100 per cent whole breast meat chicken in all its Canadian locations.
Other popular Chick-fil-A items include biscuits made fresh throughout the morning, salads made from fresh vegetables, and fruit that is hand-chopped throughout the day. Chick-fil-A’s popular lemonade is made from three simple ingredients: lemon juice, sugar, and water.
