Supervisor Bill Reilich Announces Chick-fil-A Open for Business in Greece

This morning, Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by Greece Town Board Members Mike Barry, Josh Jensen, Bill Murphy, and Diana Christodaro, Greece Receiver of Taxes Andrew Conlon, and local Chick-fil-A Owner Alan Taylor and many of his family members, friends, and staff for the ribbon cutting ceremony announcing Chick-Fil-A is open for business! A crowd gathered to celebrate the grand opening, including all of the people who have been camping out these past couple days in hopes of winning free Chick-fil-A meals throughout the year. A constant flow of people were coming through both the restaurant line and drive-thru lanes for their first Chick-fil-A meal in Monroe County.

This Georgia-based fast food chain is located at 2140 West Ridge Road in Greece and includes two drive-thru ordering lanes and a two-story playground for children. The 5,056 square foot restaurant offers both indoor and outdoor seating, is open 6:30am – 10:00pm Monday through Saturday, and serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner. More than 120 people have already been employed, and more could be hired depending upon demand.

Chick-fil-A prides itself on fresh food preparation, parenting-friendly menus, and environmental sustainability. Many of their items are hand-prepared daily, including hand-chopped salads made throughout the day, hand-breaded chicken, and hand-spun milkshakes. Owner and Greece resident Alan Taylor plans on giving back to the community by partnering the local franchise with area charities.

 “I was honored to join Chick-fil-A representatives for the ribbon cutting ceremony of this highly-anticipated business” said Supervisor Reilich. “I am always excited to help bring new businesses to the area, and I was very pleased when the Town of Greece received an application from Chick-fil-A. I recognize that they could have established their business anywhere in Monroe County, but chose to establish in the business-friendly Town of Greece. I am incredibly proud that they chose our Town, and wish owner and Greece resident Alan Taylor and his team great success! I am delighted to declare on behalf of the Greece Town Board and all Greece residents that April 12, 2018 is Chick-fil-A Day in the Town of Greece!”
