Chick-fil-A coming to Champaign

Chick-fil-A Fast Food Restaurant (MGN)

The popular chicken restaurant, Chick-fil-A, could be coming to Champaign and the town is buzzing.

It would take the spot of the former Ruby Tuesday on Prospect Avenue that closed back in 2016.

Right now, the closet Chick-fil-A is about 50 miles away in Bloomington.

There used to be one on campus, but it closed several years ago.

The chain submitted a permit application with the city for a single-story building with a drive-thru, according to the Champaign County assessor’s website.

The permit is still being reviewed which can take some time.

If approved, the plans for construction and design will be released.
