Chick-fil-A at Avalon set to open; creates 100 jobs for N. Fulton


The people of Alpharetta will have one more spot to get chicken on Thursday.

That’s when the newest Chick-fil-A in metro Atlanta will open.

Opening at 6:30 a.m. on Thursday, this Chick-fil-A is part of the Boulevard East expansion for Avalon, Alpharetta’s mixed-use development where folks can live, work, eat and play. It is expected to create 100 new jobs.

The location at Avalon will be operated by John Crays. He has also overseen Chick-fil-A’s in Stone Mountain and Decatur.

“My team members and I can’t wait to join and serve our Alpharetta community and those who pass through this Avalon corridor every day,” Crays said in a statement. “Our goal is to provide a remarkable experience for every customer, every time, by serving food our guests can truly feel good about eating, extending sincere hospitality and being a good neighbor.”

Avalon’s Chick-fil-A is a 5,000-square-foot restaurant with an all-brick exterior. The interior will feature a large gathering table made from reclaimed wood and subway tiles, and light fixtures made from recycled Coca-Cola bottles. The dining room will seat 140 people.
