Chick-fil-A opens new sites in Monrovia, West Covina, with new Pasadena site in the pipeline

Chick-fil-A is making a new push in the San Gabriel Valley with a cluster of new eateries, with two already up and running and one in the works.

One Chick-fil-A opened April 20 at 820 W. Huntington Drive, in Monrovia under operator Lamar Turner.

And another was set to open on April 13 at 200 S. Vincent Ave, West Covina, near the I-10 Freeway and Barranca Street, under the leadership of operator Daniel Hernandez, a spokesperson for the company said.

The Atlanta-based fast food franchise, known for its chicken sandwiches and nuggets, and a menu that also includes milkshakes, an array of beverage options, a breakfast menu, among other offerings, has been riding a kind of high, topping the American Customer Satisfaction Index Restaurant Study for the eighth consecutive year last year.

Locally, yet another restaurant is under construction in Pasadena, at 790 N. Lake Ave., the site of what was once a Carl’s Jr.

A representative said the company was not yet ready to announce the opening date.

That site has been in the works for years, as it received the required city approvals.

The site will accommodate more than 70 customers between its patio and dining room at any given time, plus more than two dozen cars in a two-lane drive-thru.

Early on, the indoor seating was considered a new addition. Initially, it was proposed as a drive-thru only location until there was significant push back from the community.

The new restaurant will join an already existing Chick-fil-A  on East Colorado Boulevard, near Pasadena City College. That restaurant opened in 2014.
