Chick-fil-A Oshawa

Chick-fil-A is on an aggressive expansion program in Canada after opening its first Canadian store in downtown Toronto in September 2019 and has since opened ten more stores in the GTA, with latest openings in Don Mills in June and at Square One in Mississauga in August.

The company hopes to grow to 20 stores in Canada by 2025 with plans to open seven to ten restaurants per year thereafter.

Chick-fil-A, the Atlanta-based fast food chain famous for its chicken sandwiches, will be opening a store in Oshawa early next year in the Farm Boy plaza at Wilson and Taunton in the city’s north end.

Next on the list are restaurants in Oshawa and London.

Each new opening is often marked by protests over the company’s stance against the LGBTQ2S community, while the restaurant’s drive-throughs – especially in the U.S. south – are often packed with supporters, causing traffic problems on nearby streets.

S. Truett Cathy opened the first Chick-fil-A in 1967 in Georgia and there are now more than 2,700 restaurants in 48 states, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and Canada. With its founding marked by staunch Christian beliefs, the restaurants do not open on Sundays.

Owner/Operator Matt Bizley said the company doesn’t have an official opening date for the Oshawa location yet but are “grateful” for the opportunity to serve the Oshawa community. The restaurant is actively hiring staff for both full-time and part-time positions. Visit Chick-fil-A’s hiring website to learn more.
