CFA is expensive but the food is fairly good. Their employees are fairly nice, at least down here in SoCal. Which is nice since sometimes getting a "hello" is hard to come by. They also close on Sundays and are know for their religious ties.

Nice to see Chick Fil A and Buffalo Wild Wings coming into the market. Yes, they are chains, but they are pretty high quality chains and any new employment is a good thing! Still waiting for Carls Jr. (likely), and "In-n-Out", (not likely).

I've eaten in them several times in Ga and Fla. I only get a grilled chicken sandwich though and it was very good. Don't know about the rest of their food. I haven't been to them in several years. Chick-fil-A is choosy about where they will open stores, and recently has been getting verbal about its policies and politics. I know they will not open stores in Portland.

True, but I have not read anything about certain denominations. They have expanded into Utah, so obviously LDS is not an issue for them, as they're also planning E. Idaho. Nothing wrong with that, they have every right to operate their business how they please.

CFA makes a very good product. Their chicken is a finer quality than most and is prepared and cooked in a healthier manner than most other fast food organizations. Their wafffle fries are wonderful as is their freshly squeezed lemonade. They are a bit unique in some ways which is a good thing. Overall a excellent organization. Never had a bad meal from them yet.

Default Bring on the Chick-fil-a

This would be an excellent addition to the Idaho Falls restaurants. The only other Chicken place is really KFC and this is not the best one I have been to.

Hitt Road would be an okay place. 17th street or Broadway would be good to. Another fact about Chick fil a is that they are closed on Sunday. Idaho Falls and this area has a very large LDS population who normally do not go out to eat on Sunday so this would work out well for the restaurant (less people unhappy that they are not open on Sunday).

My family would love to be the first in line at your grand opening.

I think things are about to pop with Chick-fil-a and Carl's Jr. I would expect to see both open by the end of summer. Locations? That is the mystery at this point. As for In-n-Out, their expansion into Utah is encouraging, but probably more experimental than the start of further expansion. Just a hunch. However, SLC stores could certainly bring in E. Idaho from a geographic/transportation standpoint. I see In-in-Out as a western states franchise (including Texas, where many are about to open), in the next decade.

I'd look for a Kneaders in Idaho Falls next. No data to support my statement, I've only seen the requests.

LDS are probably their best customers in Utah. Got to agree with you pw72, private businesses are just that. Those who take the risk and put up the $ for a business are the ones who decide HOW to run their business and their policies.

There was a day when it was easy for me to go to CFA DRIVE THRU, but when my routes to work changed, I made no effort to go back. Kind of like what Cleosmom wrote earlier. I don't think I'm a chicken person as I can't remember when I last had KFC etc.

And what was odd to me about CFA is they were heavily into the malls (inside) in Utah a few years ago, then they were suddenly gone. Perhaps a change at corp of what type of stores they wanted vs. renting high rental mall property; however, absolutely horrible PR so customers knew they would return. Slowly, a few new stores with drive thrus started to emerge.

Just curious Nate, if you're still reading, and others, about one thing. I think it's wonderful to have local perspective. Some questions I read (not saying this is one of them), but with some questions I read, I wonder if the potential owner has studied the demographics in much detail. That info is so clear be it age, income, family size etc. with the 1 mile radius, the 3 mile radius and 5 mile radius, I sometimes wonder if potential new businesses study that info.

And if the location does well in Ammon, PLEASE expand to the West Side. There is a shortage of options on the west side of Idaho Falls. With Areva coming, those who get their property now and built will be ahead of others who want to expand to Idaho Falls, IMHO.

Good for Nate and anyone else who opens a new business

Wishing you the very best in your new venture.

Is Kneaders similar to Panera/St. Louis Bread Co.?
