TORONTO — Chick-fil-A has announced plans for continued expansion in Ontario. New locations are slated to open in Kitchener, Ont. and the Toronto communities of Scarborough and Queen Street West later this year.
The company, first entered Ontario in 2019, opening its first franchisee-owned restaurant outside of the U.S. Now, Chick-fil-A plans to open an additional 20 locations in Canada by 2025.
“We’re thrilled to continue growing in Canada by opening restaurants in Kitchener and Toronto. During these times, we’re grateful for the positive response we continue to receive from our Canadian customers and we are honoured to serve our new communities great-tasting food made with high-quality ingredients,” says Anita Costello, executive vice-president of International at Chick-fil-A Inc. “Like our first two locations, each restaurant will be locally owned and operated. The success of our business is built on local owner/operators who truly care about their restaurant and the community they serve.”
For every new restaurant opening in Canada, Chick-fil-A, Inc. will donate $25,000 to a local food bank located near the new location. Chick-fil-A restaurants will also help alleviate hunger and reduce food waste through Chick-fil-A’s Shared Table program. This initiative redirects surplus food from restaurants to local soup kitchens, shelters and non-profits in need.
