Chick-fil-A Signal Hill to Expand, Temporarily Close for Construction
Manassas’s favorite chicken sandwich will be a little trickier to get – for now – at least. Chick-fil-A Signal Hill on Liberia Avenue has announced a major expansion requiring a temporary closure.
Originally opened in 2004, Chick-fil-A Signal Hill has become the City’s top meals taxpayer, doing more sales than any other restaurant in Manassas. They often handle upwards of 2,000 cars a day through their single-lane drive-thru. Customer demand has grown to the point where the existing building, primarily its drive-thru and kitchen, can no longer handle its volume of daily visitors.
“Our business has grown substantially along with the City to the point where we’ve outgrown the building’s original layout,” says owner George Snyder. “This expansion will significantly improve our customer and team member experience and allow us to explore new lines of business.”
Chick-fil-A will temporarily suspend operations later in May for the expansion to include an additional drive-thru lane, canopies for drive-thru staff, interior remodeling, and larger kitchen, which will enable Chick-fil-A to offer catering services as well. The restaurant is working with City staff to fast-track their renovations and hopes to reopen in August.
“We can’t wait to complete the work, bring back our Chick-fil-A team, and start serving the wonderful Manassas community again!” says Snyder.
