Chick-Fil-A reopens after three-month renovation


After a three-month-long wait, Granbury and Hood County residents can once again order their beloved Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwiches after the fast-food restaurant reopened for business Thursday, April 11.

The Chick-Fil-A of Granbury underwent a $2.2 million renovation project beginning Jan. 18, which resulted in the building being torn down to the shell.

Following the 12-week renovation, the store’s newest features will now include an expanded kitchen, a larger drive-thru cockpit, and a three-lane drive-thru with one lane reserved for mobile orders.

“We’re excited to continue to give our community more convenient options for pickup orders,” Chick-Fil-A Granbury wrote in a reel on its Facebook page. “Pre-ordered meals from the Chick-Fil-A app can be delivered to guests in our mobile drive-thru lane, in the dining room, or curbside. Download the app today to earn points toward future purchases.”

To compensate for the kitchen expansion, the renovation also included the removal of the children’s play area — a decision many residents were unhappy about as Chick-Fil-A was the only fast-food chain remaining in town with a play center.

“This renovation is very needed, mainly for our kitchen,” Owner/Operator Aaron Grant previously told the Hood County News. “We currently are just stepping on each other’s toes, and we are just out of room. We just want to serve our community as best as we can and uphold the values of Chick-Fil-A.”

The Chick-Fil-A of Granbury is now open at its same location, 1011 E. U.S. Highway 377. Hours of operation are 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sundays.
