CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. (WIVB) — Chick-fil-A mania extends far beyond Cheektowaga. The restaurant chain has become the third largest in the U.S., according to Nation’s Restaurant News.
The restaurant’s system-wide sales reached $10 billion last year, with a growth rate topping 16 percent.
The only larger U.S. restaurant chains are Starbucks at number two and McDonald’s at number one.
Chick-fil-A has been open on Walden Ave. since November. Another location is planned for Transit Rd.
