A Chick-fil-A restaurant opens Tuesday near New Castle. The restaurant, at 107 S. du Pont Highway, near Route 273, will initially be open for only drive-thru customers, 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays.
It’s the third Chick-fil-A for Wilmington native Adam Marcus, who also owns and operates the restaurants in Bear and the Christiana Mall. The corporate office said the new restaurant will employ about 125 full- and part-time workers.
In place of the traditional Chick-fil-A First 100 grand opening celebration, Chick-fil-A New Castle will surprise 100 local heroes making an impact in the community with free Chick-fil-A for a year. Chick-fil-A also will donate $25,000 to Feeding America, with the funds distributed to partners in the greater New Castle area.
