Chick-fil-A has been voted America's favorite fast-food restaurant for three years in a row. Now, Canadians will get the opportunity to 'Eat Mor Chikin'!
The beloved 'Home of the Original Chicken Sandwich' - Chick-fil-A - is expanding beyond the United States, opening it's first international location in Toronto, Canada.
President and COO Tim Tassopoulos announced a new restaurant will open in Toronto in 2019, calling it “one of the best and most vibrant cities in North America.”
“We are looking forward to putting down real roots and becoming a part of this dynamic and diverse city,” Tassopoulos said in an open letter.
Tassopoulos added that Chick-fil-A had spent "years researching cities around the world" before settling on Toronto.

After that first location is opened, Chick-fil-A plans to open about 15 additional restaurants in the area over a span of five years. Wow! That's a ton of Chick-fil-A's!
“The [greater Toronto area] is important to Chick-fil-A in terms of our growth because we know that it’s a community that is thriving economically, that does have strong culture that’s there,” Tassopoulos said. “We feel like there’s a great opportunity, and we think we’ll be able to really engage in the community in Toronto.”
