Chick-fil-A, one of the country’s largest fast-food chains, plans to build an Eden Prairie restaurant southwest of the intersection of Flying Cloud Drive and Prairie Center Drive, where other commercial and apartment construction is already underway.
The development agreement and construction plans were approved Tuesday, April 19, by the Eden Prairie City Council. They include a late change providing for another drive-through lane based on how business changed during COVID-19.
The Atlanta-based company was ranked as America’s fourth-largest restaurant chain, by sales, in 2020.
Chick-fil-A’s original plan for the Eden Prairie restaurant had two drive-through lanes narrowing to one. The change creates two lanes for the length of the drive-through area.
Other nearby developments underway or planned are a Bank of America branch, a grocery store thought to be Amazon Fresh, and the Paravel apartment complex.
