The popular American fast-food chain that caused an uproar during its grand opening in Toronto says more locations are coming soon.
Two new Toronto Chick-fil-A restaurants are opening this year, and one in Kitchener, Ontario.
The restaurants will be opening at Scarborough Town Centre’s upper-level food court and at Queen St. West and Spadina Avenue in downtown Toronto.
Kitchener’s location will be at 200-225 Fairway Rd. South. Chick-fil-A says that they’ll create up to 250 full and part-time jobs for Ontarians.
Activists from Toronto-based groups like The 519 and Liberation T.O. led protests on the opening day of the Yonge Street restaurant.
The chain has since announced that it has stopped making these donations, and has committed $9 million to support education, hunger, and homelessness initiatives.
Chick-fil-A also opened a second restaurant at Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Centre.
Like the existing locations, the new ones will be locally owned and operated, says Chick-fil-A.
