Chick-fil-A’s restaurant at 1245 William D. Tate Ave. will be moving to a new building soon.

The project received the seal of approval from Grapevine’s Planning and Zoning Commission at a joint meeting with City Council on Jan. 21. Council members then approved a site plan and conditional-use permit for the proposal.

Chick-fil-A’s new site at 1235 William D. Tate Ave. will be the former spot of the defunct Silver Fox restaurant. The building will be demolished and rebuilt.

The new Chick-fil-A will include about 5,200 square feet of space as well as dual drive-thru lanes and canopies, according to a Nov. 29 letter submitted to the city by project applicant Bryan Burger of Dallas-based civil engineering firm Burger Engineering.

“The new building construction will allow Chick-fil-A to improve the customer’s experience at this location by adding additional kitchen capacity, drive through stacking and dine in seating,” the letter states. “The order and meal delivery canopies allow Chick-fil-A team members to work outdoors while being protected from the weather elements.”


The new site shares a lot with another building, which houses Tint World, Smoothie King, Lenny’s Grill and Subs, and True Dental. Work will be done to subdivide and reconfigure the lot into two separate ones.

A deal over the property is expected to close in the next two to three months, Burger told City Council. Then construction can begin.

“It’ll probably be a four to five month construction time period,” he said. “We’ll [demolish] the existing Silver Fox and the rear parking lot and leave the existing Chick-fil-A open for the first two months. While we’re building the new building, the existing Chick-fil-A will operate, and then once we reach a certain point, we’ll shut that down. Everything will be closed down for two to three months before we reopen [at the new building].”

The intention is to repurpose the current Chick-fil-A building into a new concept at a later date, according to meeting documents.
