CNY Chick-fil-A Set to Open on 2/22/2018

Construction proceeds on the Chick-fil-A restaurant at 7932 Brewerton Road in Cicero (Rick Moriarty |

For those anticipating the opening of the Chick-Fil-A in Cicero (the first in CNY), the target grand opening date has been announced as February 22, 2018.  Construction is currently being finalized at the restaurant at 7932 Brewerton Road (in front of Home Depot).

When a Chick-fil-A opens a new restaurant, typically the first 100 customers get a free meal every week for a year. Szatowski plans a different spin on that – the first 100 people who register to perform a day of service in the community with him and his family will earn the free meal every week for a year.  Registration will likely take place the day before the restaurant opens, but specifics will be announced as the opening approaches.

UPDATE: At 6 a.m. Feb. 21, the first 100 people in line at the restaurant who live in zip codes from around Central New York will be chosen for the free meals. Those chosen also are required to participate in a day of community service to qualify for the free meals.
