Chick-fil-A set to open first stand-alone location in New Orleans

Soon, some Chick-fil-A fans can get their fast food fix in New Orleans without crossing parish lines for a drive-thru. The first stand-alone location will head to Orleans Parish in 2022.

New Orleans City Council member Kristin Palmer announced on social media that the fast-food chain will head to the Algiers Shopping Plaza Center at 4100 General DeGaulle Drive.


According to Palmer’s tweet, the City Council approved a conditional use permit for construction. Palmer said the restaurant is “coming to Algiers in 2022” but didn’t give an exact opening date for the location, yet.

While this new Chick-fil-A restaurant will be Orleans Parish’s first stand-alone location, New Orleans has other licensed restaurants on campus at Xavier University and the University of New Orleans. The new Algiers restaurant also marks the third stand-alone location on the West Bank.
