A Chick-fil-A restaurant could be heading to Apple Valley.
On Wednesday night, the Apple Valley Planning Commission will learn more about Chick-fil-A’s proposal to build a drive-thru restaurant at the intersection of Cedar Avenue and 153rd Street.
Currently, there are three locations of the Georgia-based restaurant chain—best known for its breaded chicken sandwiches—in Minnesota: at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and in student unions at the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities and Minnesota State University-Mankato.
Construction of two other locations, in Maple Grove and Coon Rapids, has been approved.
The Chick-fil-A proposed for Apple Valley would be located at the southeast corner of the Cedar Avenue-153 Street intersection, in an outlot planned as part of the Cub Foods renovation.
According to Apple Valley Planning Commission documents, the 4,585 square-foot building would seat 106 customers and would have an outdoor seating area and a drive-thru lane.
Chick-fil-A has proposed a two-menu-board drive thru, but Apple Valley’s building code allows for one board, according to Planning Commission documents.
The Planning Commission will not take any action on the proposal on Wednesday night, as Chick-fil-A officials are seeking input on their plan.
Among the other items on the agenda for Wednesday’s commission meeting are:
• Considering zoning amendments, preliminary plat and site plan/building permit authorizations for the proposed Parkside Village development.
• Considering the proposed reconstruction of the Kwik Trip store at 7510 145th St. W.
