Located at 1005 Bandy Pkwy, Chick-fil-A Locust Grove will be open for dine-in and carryout from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and guests can take advantage of the drive-thru until 10 p.m.

The Chick-fil-A Locust Grove restaurant joins 165 other Chick-fil-A restaurants serving the greater Atlanta area, according to Monday’s announcement.

In Locust Grove, Lovett will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 135 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests, and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.

“Born in Atlanta, Lovett began his journey with Chick-fil-A during his junior year of college, where he gained restaurant experience, learned more about Chick-fil-A’s corporate purpose and ultimately decided to pursue a career with the company following graduation,” according to a press release. During Lovett’s four years in Chick-fil-A’s Leadership Development Program, he traveled the country to support new restaurant openings, including the first Truett’s Chick-fil-A locations in Newnan and Rome, Georgia. Lovett was selected to be an Operator in 2018 and served as the Operator of Chick-fil-A Oswego outside of Chicago from 2019 to early 2022 — earning several awards including Midwest Rookie of the Year.

“Being from the Atlanta area and having been involved with this community for over 20 years, it is a true blessing to be coming back to Georgia as the Operator of Chick-fil-A Locust Grove,” Lovett said. “I look forward to making Chick-fil-A Locust Grove a place where families, friends, businesses, and travelers can come, be cared for, and served well, along with helping our community flourish.”

In honor of the opening, Chick-fil-A, Inc. will donate $25,000 to Feeding America on behalf of the new restaurant. These funds will be distributed to partners in the greater Atlanta area to aid in the fight against hunger.

Chick-fil-A Locust Grove is also recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Locust Grove area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A for a year.
