Chick-fil-A Submits Plans To Open Restaurant In W-B Twp.

January 28, 2019

WILKES-BARRE TWP.— Chick-fil-A has submitted architectural drawings in Wilkes-Barre Twp. zoning office with plans to open a restaurant with a drive-thru where Lucky’s Sporthouse is closing at 110 Schechter Drive.

Wilkes-Barre Twp. zoning officer Tom Zedolik said he has not issued a permit yet, however.

Chick-fil-A has two quick-service locations in Luzerne County in the King’s on the Square building in downtown Wilkes-Barre and in the Banks Student Life Center at Misericordia University and another location at the University of Scranton’s campus in Lackawanna County. 

The plan is to convert Lucky’s Sporthouse’s building to a Chick-fil-A, a fast food restaurant chain which specializes in chicken sandwiches and nuggets. It is on track to become the third largest fast food chain behind McDonald’s and Wendy’s. 

Chick-fil-A’s values are influenced by the religious beliefs of its late founder S. Truett Cathy, a devout Southern Baptist. The restaurants are closed for business on Sundays as well as on Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

Lucky’s Sporthouse announced it will close following the end of business on Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 3 after more than 10 years in business.

A sign posted inside the business says the franchise owners are “making way for another exciting restaurant concept.”
