New Boardman Chick-fil-A Set to Open, Serve Community

BOARDMAN, Ohio – To celebrate the opening of a new Chick-fil-A restaurant at 480 Boardman-Canfield Road on Sept. 14, the company will donate $25,000 to Feeding America. 

The funds will be distributed to partners in the greater Youngstown area to aid in the fight against hunger.  

The new restaurant will also recognize 100 local heroes who make an impact in the Boardman area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A entrées for a year. 

“Boardman is such a beautiful place to live, and I am lucky to call this town home,” said Billy James, the independent franchised owner/operator of the new location. “I am thrilled to open this restaurant in my hometown, where we can blend our signature hospitality with great-tasting food, and also have the opportunity to partner with local organizations to continue to help this community thrive.” 

The Boardman restaurant will participate in the Chick-fil-A Shared Table program, an initiative that redirects surplus food from a restaurant to local soup kitchens, shelters, food banks and nonprofits. More than 20 million meals have been served nationwide through the program, according to a news release. 

The restaurant will be open for dine-in, drive-thru and carryout from 6:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Customers can place an order for pickup or dine-in on the Chick-fil-A app or online. One of the restaurant’s drive-thru lanes will offer Mobile Thru, which enables customers to pick up their orders in a separate lane after placing them through the app. 

The restaurant also plans to offer delivery in the coming months. 

Customers who join the Chick-fil-A One tiered membership program will receive points on qualifying purchases, which can be used to redeem rewards.

The Boardman restaurant is the sixth Chick-fil-A location in the Youngstown market.
