Who wants a spicy chicken sandwich? Chick-fil-A goes vertical, expected to open by end of year.

The countdown is on for those famous chicken nuggets and spicy chicken sandwiches (my favorite)!


Construction on the long-awaited Chick-fil-A is underway at The Stable, Stephenville’s newest development project, on Washington Street.

"The vertical construction of the new Chick-fil-A, along with the new signage and other infrastructure, serves as a visual reminder of the impact The Stable in Stephenville will have on our community,” Jeff Sandford, executive director of the Stephenville Economic Development Authority, told Beneath the Surface News. “SEDA is excited to continue working with The Stable’s developer, Las Aguilas, to bring expanded dining experiences to our citizens and visitors alike.”

Chick-fil-A is one of the fastest-growing fast food chains in the country with 2,774 restaurants in 47 states. It’s known for its friendly staff, great food and staying closed on Sundays.


Sandford said Chick-fil-A is expected to open by the end of the year.


McAlister’s Deli is also slated to open at The Stable with construction beginning next year.
