In one week, Manhattan’s newest Chick-fil-A restaurant will open three blocks south of Columbus Circle at 918 8th Avenue, between West 55th and West 54th Streets. At more than 5,000 square feet, the restaurant offers a dynamic dining experience with seating for 94 guests, including booths and community tables. Like Chick-fil-A’s other NYC locations, 918 8th Avenue will feature innovative ordering technology to facilitate speed and efficiency, and an open restaurant design featuring high ceilings and expansive windows to capture daylight.
Robert Malone had grown tired of seeing negative news coverage of the young boys in his community outside of Washington, D.C. constantly involved in violence. When he asked himself what he could do to make a change in this pattern, a spark was ignited inside of him. He knew so many upstanding men in his community, men with good hearts and good intentions, and he decided to mobilize them to inspire these kids and lead them to a better future.
Each year, the Chick-fil-A Foundation honors and celebrates 22 outstanding community organizations across the country through the True Inspiration Awards. These organizations are working hard to inspire and motivate our future leaders and make a lasting difference in their communities.
