Chick-Fil-A to open in Buffalo Niagara International Airport this fall


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.”
