Chick-fil-A Could Be Headed To Tullahoma

A design engineering firm has made an application to have site plans for a Chick-fil-A to be presented to the Tullahoma Planning Commission at its May 7 meeting.  A spokesperson with the restaurant chain says company officials are excited about locating in Tullahoma. The commission will not take any action at that time. According to City Administrator Jody Baltz, who is serving as interim planning director the commission will review the plans to be considered at its May 21 regular meeting. An engineer with GBC Design Inc, based in Akron, Ohio, recently presented the site plans to the Tullahoma Development Committee. Chick-fil-A’s plans call for a 4,686-square-foot facility to be located on .63 acres at the current Baskin-Robbins 31 Flavors Ice Cream & Yogurt on North Jackson St. A spokesperson for the company says plans are to close the deal to purchase the property and have the restaurant open next year. Tullahoma Mayor Lane Curlee said the announcement is certainly exciting news for the community. The manager for Baskin Robbins told the Tullahoma News yesterday that they aren’t sure about future plans for the business except they have to be out by September 1st.
