The new Chick-fil-A in Smithtown is officially open for business.
The fast-food chain, located on the border of Smithtown and Hauppauge, launched today at 530 Smithtown Bypass.
The franchise owner, Bryan Beasley, is a Long Island native and also owns the Chick-fil-A location in nearby Commack.
“Having been born and raised on Long Island, and now raising my own family here, I could not be more excited to expand Chick-fil-A’s reach in the place that has shaped who I am today,” said Beasley.
“Chick-fil-A Smithtown will further our efforts to serve great-tasting food with genuine hospitality to our community, while also providing personal and professional growth opportunities that I hope will shape a successful future for our Team Members.”
In lieu of a traditional grand opening celebration, Chick-fil-A Smithtown will be surprising 100 staffers at St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center in Smithtown with free Chick-fil-A for a year.
The restaurant will also donate $25,000 to Feeding America, with the funds being partners within the Greater Smithtown area, a release from the company reads.
