It's official: Chick-Fil-A coming to Cape GirardeauPosted Tuesday, February 22, 2011, at 4:16 PM
I've been working for months to confirm the rampant rumor that a free-standing Chick-Fil-A is coming to Cape Girardeau, today I learned that a building permit application for the new restaurant has been filed at city hall.
I know you are anxiously awaiting details on this yummy development.
The restaurant will be located at 3333 Gordonville Road, at the intersection of William Street and Saint Francis Drive.
The Pizza Inn restaurant currently located there will be torn down to make way for a new 4,596 square-foot Chick-Fil-A, according to plans filed at city hall.
The new restaurant will have 138 seats inside and a drive thru window. There will be 50 parking spaces on the nearly one acre site.
The city is in process of reviewing building plans, said Ken Eftink, assistant city manager.
A building permit is yet to be issued by the city, however, construction is expected to start this spring.
Prepare yourself Cape Girardeau: waffle fries are coming!
