It’s official! Swainsboro is getting Chick-fil-A—or at least a version of it.
According to its social media, Chick-fil-A (CFA) Vidalia has been looking for workers to man a new food truck venture that would take the brand on the road to communities near the Sweet Onion City, and Swainsboro has been confirmed as one of the locations the mobile unit will visit. The announcement came during the chamber banquet last Thursday night.
“I’m going to put some rumors to bed,” Swainsboro-Emanuel County Chamber of Commerce CEO Ken Warnock said to the crowd. He then asked select visitors, the leadership of CFA Vidalia, to stand. These persons included owner/operator Britt McDade, Marissa Brown, and Sarah Bullard. “They will actually have the food truck you’ve heard rumors about here in Swainsboro on February 25. Mark that day on your calendars. You do not have to drive out of Swainsboro to get Chick-fil-A.”
The truck will be located on the county lot where Schwabe Motors was and is scheduled to be in town on Fridays. The first visit four weeks from now will constitute a ribbon cutting.
Look for more details—such as menu items, frequency of Swainsboro stops, and hours of operation—as they become available.
Other areas being eyed as part of this new venture include Baxley, Claxton, and Reidsville.
Chick-fil-A Vidalia continues to search for “enthusiastic team members” who are passionate about serving their community. Jobs currently being advertised on Chick-fil-A Vidalia Food Truck’s Facebook page are full-time and part-time positions for local and regional applicants, including but not limited to the aforementioned areas, to serve alongside the food truck team while visiting each city. To apply, text “JOBS” to 912-470-5098 and follow the link received as a response, then specify interest in working on the food truck.
