Hudson Valley Post previously reported Hudson Valley residents will soon be able to order Chick-fil-A at some rest stops across New York.

The news of the popular fast-food chain opening up near the Hudson Valley excited many. But at the same time, it's not as exciting as a real store, because you have to be driving on the New York State Thruway to stop at one.

In February 2022, Hudson Valley Post reported better news. Chick-fil-A was working with officials in the Hudson Valley to open up its first location in the Hudson Valley.

But, before the company could start building they must get approval. Officials from Yonkers reviewed Chick-fil-A's application and the application approval hit some snags.
