Chick-fil-A plans restaurant along 494 strip

Chick-fil-A is continuing its Twin Cities restaurant roll out.
The Atlanta-based fast food chain has shared its tentative plans with the city of Bloomington to tear down a former Target Commercial Interiors building at Interstate 494 and Penn Ave and open a new 132-seat restaurant there that would also have a drive-through window.
Chick-fil-A met with Bloomington's Development Review Committee (DRC) Jan. 29 to discuss its plans. The company hasn't made a formal application to the city yet. The city, among other things, will likely require Chick-fil-A to conduct some sort of traffic review for the potential impact on Penn Avenue.
The two-acre site, located at 2525 West 79th St., is still owned by Minneapolis-based Target (NYSE: TGT), which operates a store that shares the same parking lot. Target is expected to sell the land to make way for the project, according to DRC meeting minutes.
Chick-fil-A told the city that its stores typically operate from 6:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and that its stores are closed on Sundays.
The Business Journal did a big story last summer about the Chick-fil-A's Twin Cities expansion plans, including its plans to open stores in Maple Grove and Coon Rapids. It also plans a store in Apple Valley.
The only two stores open so far in the Twin Cities are at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and at the University of Minnesota's student union in Minneapolis, according to the restaurant's website.
