Speedy meals, green design mark Chick-fil-A’s newest Manhattan eatery


Just five months after making its Manhattan debut with the opening of its largest restaurant to date, Chick-fil-A has opened a second outpost in the Big Apple.

The new restaurant, at 46th Street and 6th Avenue, is intended mainly for to-go orders (there are 26 stools for customers who want to dine in.) It features an expedited ordering process, with employees using tablets to take orders in line so meals will be ready once customers reach the counter. This process makes the expected wait time just six to eight minutes from the moment a customer enter the restaurant to when they receive their food, according to the company.

The new Chick-fil-A was built to LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) specifications, and is one of the first in the chain to feature an InSinkErator food waste disposal system, which spins and separates liquids from solids and reduces organic waste by 80%.
