WICHITA — Wichita Chick-fil-A fanatics, you asked and you shall receive.
The Atlanta-based fast food chain is in final negotiations to bring a freestanding Chick-fil-A to the northwest corner of Central and Rock where a Presto gas station currently is.
The deal basically is all but signed.
The chain has space in the Rhatigan Student Center at Wichita State University, but Wichitans have long requested that it bring at least one if not more of the restaurants somewhere off campus.
Never miss a local story.
Commercial broker and Chick-fil-A fanatic Cory Harkleroad started a one-man campaign to bring more of the restaurants to Wichita and has a Facebook page to promote the idea. The page has more than 8,000 friends.
No one with Chick-fil-A could immediately be reached for comment, but it looks like the chain plans more than one restaurant in addition to the WSU location.
The deal at Central and Rock isn't contingent on other locations.
We'll keep you posted.
