Chick-fil-a could be on its way to Greeneville with a stand-alone restaurant.
According to Greeneville Planning Director Logan Engle, talks for a Chick-fil-a have been in the works for the past four or five months.
The proposed site for the restaurant would be in the Crockett Crossing shopping center on East Andrew Johnson Highway. Engle told News Channel 11 there is a restaurant currently on the property called Georgia’s Southern Table.
Engle said the property issue will have to be worked out between the current property owner and the developer, New Urban Development Corp. The developer wants to demolish the building on the site and build new. After the current building is demolished, it would take four to five months before the Chick-fil-a is built and opens.
According to the plans, the new Chick-fil-a would be more than 4,850 square feet.
Preliminary site plan approval could come May 14 at the Greeneville Regional Planning Commission.
Right now, the only Chick-fil-a in the county is on the Tusculum campus. It’s part of its food service and open to the public.
