“Who’s ready to welcome a hometown favorite to Avalon,” the shopping center posted to Facebook with a picture of the Chick-fil-A logo.

“Soon, you’ll be able to share with friends,” the caption for a picture of Chick-fil-A waffle fries on Avalon’s Instagram channel mentions. “Can you guess what’s coming to Avalon?”

The Atlanta-based quick-service chicken chain joins a lineup of chef-driven concepts including Antico, Bantam + Biddy, Bantu, Bocado Burger, Caffe Gio, Colletta, Oak Steakhouse, and The El Felix.

Other restaurant chains at Avalon include Goldberg’s Deli, Kona Grill, Marlow’s Tavern, Pinkberry, and Ted’s Montana Grill.

Avalon boasts more than 500,000-square-feet of retail, a 12-screen all premium theater, a full-service hotel planned for Phase II, Class A office, single-family residences and luxury rental homes.

Avalon was not immediately available for comment.

That was a gimme, Alpharetta allowed only one QSR at Avalon. But, it had to be closed on Sunday. HMM??

Seems a little odd to me. Is there gonna be a two-lane drive thru in middle of avalon? Traffic at that place is already pretty bad. But nometheless I think it will be successful.

Exactly. If I ever have to eat there, I only get a cup of ice because everything else is horrible. They really need to have an “organic raw broccoli, cauliflower and kale” restaurant there instead. Think of how healthy they would be!!! I’d bet they’d have lines all the way around the corner waiting to get in there! When I go to shop places, if they don’t have any healthy options (the ones I say are healthy) then I go to the mall manager and tell them “nope, you won’t get my money! You’ll be out of business in a… Read more »

I like that idea of an all organic restaurant. I would love to walk into a restaurant and actually feel safe to eat.

Sorry, I love Chick-fil-A BUT DO NOT think it’s a good fit for this development. Can you imagine buying an $850k home and having a QSR in your backyard??? Ridiculous, drive a mile down the road near NorthPoint. I think unique restaurants with healthier options would be a better fit.

I believe this certainly cheapens the Avalon brand and is a horrible idea. Please give the chains away.

This is the best thing that can happen for the overpriced Avalon! CFA has high standards and their food is much better and cheaper than half of those over-priced fancy restaurants that are already there. I would not consider the Goldbergs, Fuzzywigs, Boca Burger or the Pizza joint as top of the line restaurants. Some of these places are also chains. Pull the stuck up cork out of your rear-end and welcome a quality restaurant to Avalon. At least I know I will get a decent meal for a decent price. Bring it on!
