Chick Fil A Opening in San Jose, CA
Vanity | 07/03/2012 | Vendome

Posted on 08/03/2012 6:11:05 PM PDT by Vendome

I just met the owner of the newest Chick Fil A. His name is Will and couldn't be a nicer guy.

He is planning a hard opening on August 23rd and looking forward to being a part of our community and playing a role in local charities.

Let's all come out to support Will at his great restaurant weekend on August 23rd. In fact, let's all come out to eat together all weekend when he opens.

Chick Fil A is located on North 1st street on the same parking lot as Five Guys.

Chick-Fil-A AND Five Guys in the same location. My DH would want to build a house in the middle of that parking lot, LOL!

I've been looking forward to the opening, even before the homosexual faux marriage thing blew up.

What does "hard opening" mean? On the website it still shows an August 16 opening.

My wife just told me about this one. I knew they were planning to open one in Mt. View (if the town council gives it approval), but I didn't know about this one on the border of San Jose and Milpitas.
I will definitely be dropping by, it is close to my work.
Last week their website said they were opening it on the 16th. Did they push it to the 24th?

Where on North 1st? On Yahoo Maps, the only Five Guys that I'm seeing is on Curtner just off Monterey.

If it's right on N. 1st, that's just a quick 68 trip up there for me. :=)

What does "hard opening" mean? On the website it still shows an August 16 opening.

New restaurants typically have a "soft opening" that's limited to friends, family, etc before opening to the general public. Doing that lets them work out any problems they encounter in a more controlled (and friendlier) environment.

The "hard opening" happens when they formally open to the public. Note: I did find their location up on Headquarters Drive. While that's about six or so miles farther than my 68 bus goes, I'll find a way to get there nonetheless. :=)

I'm just hoping that the Googler leftists don't have undue pull with the Mt. View council...

I am still waiting for his response. I don’t understand why i haven’t heard from him yet.

I will call him but he said an email would suffice. I emailed him twice.

If I don’ t reach him tomorrow I will PM his contact info to all who expressed interest in supporting Chick Fil A.

Congrats! Now if we in Central Texas can get one of your In-N-Out Burgers here, we will all be happy.

Actually, the City of Round Rock just approved a zoning change to allow an In-N-Out Burger to be built along I-35..or as they would say in SoCal...The 35.
