Chick-fil-A is definitely expanding in Rogers, the popular restaurant chain confirmed. Whispers reported April 10 that the restaurant was scheduled to go into a spot adjacent to the Chuy’s and Pei Wei restaurants on Pauline Whitaker Parkway in the Pinnacle Hills area.
A Chick-fil-A spokeswoman said groundbreaking at the site will be this fall and the restaurant is scheduled to open for business in the spring of 2018. The location will employ at least 80.
The Pinnacle Hills location will be Chick-fil-A’s third in Rogers and eighth in northwest Arkansas. The restaurant chain had also planned an expansion to Springdale but a preliminary location fell through.
Morrow said the chain still has the goal of opening a Springdale location by the summer of 2018.
