Posted at 7:20 AM, Dec 01, 2021

MEDINA, Ohio — A new Chick-fil-A restaurant is slated to open on North Court Street in Medina on Thursday, Dec. 2.

Chick-fil-A selected Tony Morgano as the independent franchised owner and operator. Morgano became a regular customer of the restaurant chain at an earlier age and grew up about 15 minutes away from where the new location is opening.

In place of the traditional Chick-fil-A first 100 grand opening celebration, the restaurant will surprise 100 local heroes making an impact in their community with free Chick-fil-A for a year.

Chick-fil-A Medina is located at 1007 N. Court St. and will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Ahead of the highly anticipated opening, the Medina County Police Department has a new traffic plan in place for Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
