The new location, located at 507 N. Academy, will be open for dine-in and carry-out from 6:30 a.m. – 9 p.m., with the drive-thru open until 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday. According to a press release from Chick-fil-A, the location is employing 125 full-time and part-time workers, and joins the eight other locations already serving Colorado Springs.
