After months and months of speculation, rumors, and the like, we have officially confirmed that the home of “The Original Chicken Sandwich” is coming to Bremen. Chick-fil-A has plans to build at the location of the Marathon gas station on US 27 near I-20 next to Jack’s Family Restaurant. The station has shut down, and demolition has already begun. We confirmed with Mike Thompson, Operations Manager for the City of Bremen, that this is the site for the new restaurant and that they have a pre-construction meeting with Chick-fil-A set for January 25. Mr. Thompson also stated that the fuel tanks are expected to be dug up in the next couple of weeks in preparation for construction.
There had been some speculation reported about Huddle House looking at the same property. However, according to Mr. Thompson, their representatives have not reached out to the city about a location or construction.
Stay tuned to The City Menus as more details become available.
