The popular chicken fast food restaurant, Chick-fil-A, will soon be coming to Cedarville University’s campus. As part of the 10-year campus master plan, the establishment is being built to give students more food options and to help relieve the pressure of the busiest times on the cafeteria and Stingers as the school’s enrollment grows bigger.
The Chick-fil-A is expected to open in July 2020, in a still undisclosed location, and will be open to the public and to students alike.
“We are excited to partner with Chick-fil-A, an organization that shares Cedarville’s vision to glorify God through faithful stewardship,” said Thomas White, president of Cedarville University, when he announced the plan to students, faculty, and staff in the University’s first chapel of the academic year. “Chick-fil-A is a favorite among our constituents, and we anticipate it will be a popular dining option for students and the community alike. The new venue is part of our strategic efforts to foster a vibrant community.”
In the planned partnership between Cedarville and Chick-fil-A, the two will develop the building space, kitchen and serving areas to accommodate operational needs while creating an environment that builds community and engagement for students.
Chick-fil-A will be the first popular eatery available on Cedarville’s campus.
