Chick-Fil-A coming to Alexander City!
Conversations about Chick-fil-A have been ongoing for years but began in earnest about 16 months ago. March 4, 2020 the Alexander City City Council approved a six-month memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Cory Presnick of CORTA LLC. The undisclosed details of the MOU were CORTA, who had relationships with CFA executives to pursue bringing the restaurant to Alexander City. Just a week later the COVID-19 pandemic struck and CFA turned its attention inward during the early stages of the pandemic. The MOU would expire Sept. 4 and in November CFA expressed interest in the market. The council would extend the MOU for another six months. In December the council approved an agreement to provide approximately 2.52 acres in front of the new municipal complex to bring Chick-Fil-A to Alexander City.
