Chick-Fil-A will find another home in western New York, this time in the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.
A spokesperson for the airport says it was discussed in a board meeting Monday.
Delaware North and the airport are looking to replace “underperforming“ food court brands Villa Pizza and Checkers with reputable national and local brands.
A Marketplace Concept will also replace Which Wich, BUF Bar and Mattie’s in the Northeast area of the airport.
The Chick-Fil-A is expected to be completed by the fall of this year.
Assemblyman Sean Ryan voiced concerns, calling on the NFTA to reverse its decision to allow Chick-Fil-A in the airport.
The NFTA responded, saying “First and foremost, the NFTA is an organization that prides itself on its strong commitment to diversity and inclusion, and stand[s] firmly against any form of discrimination. We have the upmost respect for Assemblyman Ryan and consider him a great partner and friend to us. We will reach out to him and discuss his concerns.”
