Henry County diners will soon have two more locations to enjoy Chick-fil-A in 2022. The company is making progress on plans to open two new stores in Locust Grove and Union Grove. Moving Henry Forward previously reported on the new stores in 2020.

Chick-fil-A Locust Grove

The Locust Grove location will be off Bandy Parkway west of I-75. Bandy Parkway runs between Bill Gardner Parkway and Strong Rock. In addition, the new store will be adjacent to LaQuinta Inn and Waffle House. Medical office buildings are also on the road.

The city council approved architectural renderings for the project during their September 7 meeting. The site layout features a dual-lane drive-thru — a standard feature at new Chick-fil-A’s. This facilitates more cars through the line.

The building design is similar to the new Eagles Landing Chick-fil-A. The location closed earlier this year for a complete tear-down and rebuild. It reopened in July.

Construction should begin soon on the project. The company typically builds new sites in six to eight months.

Union Grove

Elsewhere in Henry County, the company started construction on the Union Grove Chick-fil-A. The new store will be off highway 155 near East Lake Parkway. Specifically, the site is between Wendy’s and Advance Auto.

Chick-fil-A Lake Dow shared on Facebook that owner / operator Mark Fleming was selected to also operate the Union Grove location. A groundbreaking was recently held for the project.

The Union Grove location will feature a similar design to Locust Grove. It will also have the dual-lane drive-thru that wraps around the building. The restaurant plans to open in February 2022.
