Chick-fil-A at 37th and 6th has re-opened for business. We opened on Jan. 5 at 6:30 a.m. following the completion of our voluntary shut-down to perform maintenance and facilities updates. We appreciate our customers’ patience and look forward to serving them soon.

On December 30th, the decision was made to voluntarily close Chick-fil-A at 37th and 6th after a city health inspection cited the restaurant for six violations. We are taking these violations seriously and felt the decision to close was the right one, ensuring we could focus solely on correcting the issues reported including: fruit flies in the restaurant, maintaining cold food temperatures, improper storage of an empty container and wiping cloths not being sanitized properly.
Closing the restaurant voluntarily has allowed us the time to make facility and procedural changes that will better meet the needs of serving our guests while operating in a very busy urban environment. These changes have included retraining the leadership team and employees, fruit fly mitigation and thorough cleanings of the restaurant, independent inspections by an outside consultant, and equipment and facilities upgrades. All of this activity and the commitment of our team will ensure the cleanest and safest environment going forward – something that we are committed to chain-wide.
We do have a little more work to complete so we have made the decision to remain closed until we feel confident we are exceeding standards in all areas. Thank you for your support and patience.
