Chick-fil-A, the popular fried-chicken fast food restaurant, is set to open its first ever free-standing New York City franchise at 1000 Sixth Avenue in Midtown.

The new three-story outpost at the corner of 37th Street will span 5,000 square feet and boast 10 registers, more than at any other Chick-fil-A location. Though the eatery has never had a free-standing location in New York City before, it does operate a small outpost in a New York University facility. The next closest location is in Paramus, N.J., according to Crain’s.

“We are beyond excited about opening our first freestanding restaurant in New York,” said Carrie Kurlander, Chick-fil-A’s vice president of public relations. “This location will allow us to serve fans who have been asking us to come to New York and to earn the opportunity to serve new customers.”

Chick-fil-A has attracted media attention in the past for some of its unusual policies, such as being closed on Sundays, and for CEO Dan Cathy’s outspoken views against same-sex marriage. Cathy has since said that he will choose not to mix his personal feelings on social issues with business. The new location will, like all other locations, be closed on Sundays.

The buiding is owned by the Cohen family, which was represented by Jack Terzi of JTRE Holdings. Chick-fil-a was represented by Jeremy Ezra of RKF. [Crain’s] — Tess Hofmann
