SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (ABC4) – If you were looking forward to grabbing a chicken sandwich for lunch today in South Jordan, you may have noticed the Chick-fil-A on District Drive is closed.

The South Jordan location is one of over two dozen Chick-fil-A restaurants throughout the Beehive State.

The restaurant, located near The District, the shopping mall near Daybreak along Bangerter Highway, will be closed until fall.

A message from owner Becky Pickle explains why:

“We are closed for an exciting remodel until this fall. We can’t wait to welcome you back in to a brand new restaurant! We have some big changes coming we know you will love! Our Mountain View Village location is only 2.5 miles away, and their dining room, drive-through, and delivery options are open and our team is ready to serve you there in the meantime! Thanks for allowing us to continue serving you at that location while we give this one a full remodel. See you soon!”

According to Chick-fil-A’s website, the South Jordan location is the only one in Utah closed for remodeling.

Chick-fil-A shared the following statement about the remodel, saying, “The Chick-fil-A South Jordan remodel will feature the chain’s newest restaurant design, increased kitchen capacity and a new, more convenient space to serve guests. Our existing drive-thru features iPad order points covered by canopies and includes heaters and fans to ensure a safe environment for our guests and Team Members. The restaurant will be closed during the remodel period and will reopen in the Fall.”

While Chick-fil-A has been remodeling some of its restaurants using modular construction, according to an October 2020 blog post by the company, the chain says the South Jordan location will be remodeled in the traditional fashion.
