Granbury residents will soon have to say sayonara to Chick-Fil-A Granbury as it is almost time for its $2.2 million renovation project.
Beginning Jan. 18, the fast-food chain will be shut down for a total of 12 weeks with a reopening date set for April 11.
The project will include the permanent removal of the play area to compensate for the seating changes as preliminary plans show an enlarged and more complex kitchen extending to the doorway of the restrooms.
Many community members have voiced their concerns with the removal of the play area on social media as it was the only fast-food chain remaining in the town with a play center.
The renovation will also include a second drive-thru lane installed to help alleviate the drive-thru times for customers and provide more efficient service.
“This renovation is very needed, mainly for our kitchen. We currently are just stepping on each other’s toes, and we are just out of room,” owner/operator Aaron Grant told the HCN back in September. “We just want to serve our community as best as we can and uphold the values of Chick-Fil-A.”
