Atlanta-based quick-service restaurant chain Chick-fil-A has opened a new Toronto location at 336 Queen Street West.

Chick-fil-A Queen Street West is part of the brand’s strategic Canadian expansion, which will see the store-count rise from the current roster of six to a planned twenty-five by 2025.

Chick-fil-A is the first tenant in a recently completed four-storey retail/office building, developed by The Pearl Group. Tenants of the former 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.

Independent franchised Owner/Operator Keisse Azevedo started with the brand in Florida and was on the opening team at Yorkdale Shopping Centre before relocating to open the Queen Street West location.

“I’m excited to contribute to one of the city’s most dynamic neighbourhoods by helping those in need in the Queen Street West community, providing personal growth opportunities to my team and showing care to all who walk through our doors,” said Azevedo.

The location will have approximately 100 full and part-time staff and will be participating in various community initiatives, including the Shared Table program.

This is the second location in Downtown Toronto, with the original being near the corner of Yonge and Bloor. The One Bloor East podium where the first location opened has seen a huge changeover since Chick-fil-A opened in September 2019, with McEwan Fine Foods exiting the property in December, Tokyo Smoke relocating to 94 Cumberland Street in Yorkville and Starbucks shuttering its location.

Michael Calderone and Bryce Dymond of brokerage Urban Reform Realty Inc. represent Chick-fil-A for its real estate selection in Canada.  

Chick-fil-A has more than 2,700 restaurants in the USA and Canada.
