Chick-fil-A plans to open its first restaurant in Hawaii at a site on Oahu.
The Atlanta-based chain announced the plan on its website Thursday.
“It’s official – Chick-fil-A is coming to Hawaii!” the company stated. “We are honored to join the Aloha State and look forward to serving new and existing fans delicious food with remarkable hospitality.”
Chick-fil-A was founded in 1967 and operates about 2,300 restaurants in 47 states and Washington, D.C., often through franchisees.
The company did not specify a location or timetable for opening, but did say about 80 employees will be needed for the restaurant.
Chick-fil-A representatives could not be reached immediately for more details.
