South Loop Chick-Fil-A re-opens after renovation project

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - For those folks who have been waiting with bated breath for the South Loop Chick-Fil-A to re-open, the wait is over. The newly renovated restaurant re-opened earlier this week.

The restaurant has been closed for renovations since June 8. In the meantime, Chick-Fil-A fans had to get their fix at the restaurant in the Lufkin Mall.

In a previous story, Julie Walker, the restaurant's operator, said the restaurant had outgrown the space in the kitchen and the drive-through and customers can expect a makeover from the inside out.

Chick-Fil-A officials said the lunch hour is one of the busiest times of day, and they hope a second drive-thru will help with the mid-day rush.
