Chick-fil-A Says Tullahoma Easy To Work With

Tullahoma has streamlined its construction project permit process to make it easier on developers, and the effort seems to be paying off with a Chick-fil-A restaurant chain’s commitment to locate an outlet in the city. Gary Rouse, a principal engineer with GBC Design Inc, based in Akron, Ohio, who has been working with the city’s Planning Commission and Development Committee on Chick-fil-A’s behalf, said the staff he has dealt with in the process to locate a restaurant outlet in Tullahoma has been very accommodating and made his job considerably easier. The city issued a demolition permit on May 31 to remove the Baskin-Robbins site and issued a building permit to locate a 4,686-square-foot Chick-fil-A building on the .63-acre lot.
