PHOENIX — Downtown Phoenix will soon be home to one of the country’s most popular fast-food chains, Chick-fil-A.
The Georgia-based chicken restaurant has signed a lease and is preparing to build a new location on 7th Avenue, just south of Roosevelt Street, next to Starbucks.
The land is owned by a couple of different partners, but headed by Mark Davis and his development company 48 Development Co. The group originally purchased the land in 2018 for $3 million, according to Maricopa County records.
The land was already pre-approved for drive-thru operations and several drive-thru businesses showed interest in it, Davis told the Business Journal, but Chick-fil-A stood out from the flock.
