Chick-fil-A looks to Fremont for new store

Good news for devotees of Chick-fil-A: the chain known for its peanut oil-fried chicken is apparently seeking a new store in Fremont.
Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has filed a proposal with the city of Fremont to develop a 4,526-square-foot store at 5539 Auto Mall Parkway, according to the city’s current planning commission agenda.
If approved, this would actually be the city’s second Chick-fil-A. A new store is currently under construction at 5245 Mowry Ave., on a site that used to be a Burger King.
Chick-fil-A has been in expansion mode in the Bay Area but the stores, which have a devoted following, are still not common here. There are two stores open stores in San Jose and one in Sunnyvale. There are none between Silicon Valley’s largest city and Concord. In all, there are nine open stores within a 100-mile radius of San Jose.
The site Chick-fil-A is looking at is a vacant parcel near the site where a 102-room Staybridge Suites was approved several years ago. However, that hotel project never happened and the approvals would be rescinded in conjunction with the go-ahead for the Chick-fil-A, according to a city staff report.
