CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — The wait is almost over! Flour Bluff's first Chick-fil-A location is set to open on Nov. 17 at 6:30 a.m.

The new location is at S. Padre Island Dr. and Flour Bluff Dr. and is equipped with the newest features for a great experience.

Instead of a drive-thru window, this location will use full size doors "to personally meet you at your vehicle with your order."

Just one week away! We open next Thursday, November 17 at 6:30am ☀️

In honor of the new location's opening, Chick-fil-A will be surprising 100 local heroes making an impact in the Corpus Christi area with free Chick-fil-A for a year. The company will also donate $25,000 to Feeding America to support the greater Corpus Christi area in the fight against hunger.

Jessica Davis was chosen as the independent franchise owner. Davis has a long history with Chick-fil-A, starting as a Team Member at age 15 at Chick-fil-A Villa Rica in Georgia, the company said. Davis later joined the team at Chick-fil-A Rockmart while preparing for Chick-fil-A’s Leadership Development Program. After 18 months of training, Davis was chosen for the program, where she served across the country for more than two years before being selected as the Operator of Chick-fil-A Flour Bluff. Davis relocated to Corpus Christi with her husband and daughter in 2021 and is looking forward to opening the Flour Bluff location and welcoming the Corpus Christi community.

“I am excited to build my own team and get to know the guests of Chick-fil-A Flour Bluff,” said Davis. “I hope to have a positive impact with each person that comes through our doors, as we work to be the most caring restaurant in Corpus Christi.”

Davis’ restaurant will be participating in the Chick-fil-A Shared Table™ Program, an initiative that redirects surplus food from the restaurant to local soup kitchens, shelters, food banks and nonprofits in need.

The Flour Bluff Chick-fil-A Facebook page shared a sneak peak of what the dining room looks like and said they cannot wait to welcome guests starting Thursday.
