Chick-fil-A makeover complete in Silver Spring (Photos)

Well, it took longer than originally planned, but Chick-fil-A's downtown Silver Spring renovation is finally completed. The restaurant reopened on Friday, five days after the reopening date posted when the work began. Updates include new furniture. 

No drive-thru is still a deal-breaker for me, though. I'd probably be at Chick-fil-A every day if they had drive-thrus in Montgomery County. Apparently, the corporate suits at Chick-fil-A aren't aware that drive-thru customers account for 70% of business at other fast food restaurants - that's a lot of money to leave on the table.


  1. Drive-thru fast food is the reason most Americans are obese nowadays.

    I'm glad that Chick-fil-A is forcing their customers to get some exercise.

  2. I love the renovation- new furniture and lighting.

  3. Yes, I'm sure they're unaware of that statistic. That makes lots of sense. People involved in running successful corporations are often totally unaware of important facts about their industries. Great analysis.

  4. Just what we need in a dense, urban environment - an automobile-oriented fast food restaurant with a drive through. In completely unrelated news, the new Chik Fil-a in DC is causing gridlock -
