Chick-fil-A to Open on Queen Street in Downtown Toronto

Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has announced that it will be expanding the Canadian portfolio of stores with a new location at 336 Queen Street West in downtown Toronto.

The restaurant will be a tenant in the four-storey building which has been under construction since 2019.

Tenants of the former Queen Street West location included Le Chateau until 2013 and Urban Behaviour until 2018. David’s Tea also had a storefront pre-2009 until late 2014 before relocating to 278 Queen Street West, taking a Soft Moc location. The new 336 Queen building replaces these former businesses.

Chick-fil-A added two new restaurants in Ontario in August 2021, with new storefronts opening at Scarborough Town Centre in Toronto and in Kitchener. The brand will have five Canadian locations including Yonge & Bloor and the Yorkdale Shopping Centre in Toronto after Queen Street opens.

Anita Costello, executive vice president of International at Chick-fil-A Inc. shared a statement on the expansion in Canada.

“We’re thrilled to continue growing in Canada by opening restaurants in Kitchener and Toronto,” said Costello. “During these times, we’re grateful for the positive response we continue to receive from our Canadian customers and we are honoured to serve our new communities great-tasting food made with high-quality ingredients.”

“Like our first two locations, each restaurant will be locally owned and operated. The success of our business is built on local owner/operators who truly care about their restaurant and the community they serve.”

The privately-held company is planning to open an additional 20 restaurants in Canada by 2025. Michael Calderone and Bryce Dymond of brokerage Urban Reform Realty Inc. represent Chick-fil-A for its real estate selection in Canada.

  1. I’m desperately waiting for Chick-fil-A to open in BC, particularly Metro Vancouver. I figure its only a matter of time. C-f-A has a good product and universal appeal. Their locations virtually print money as they churn customers so quickly. Chicken concepts have exploded over the past two years. In Vancouver multiple Korean fried chicken restaurants, Popeye’s, Nashville Hot Chicken, etc. have opened recently.
