It’s no secret that some people are not happy that a busy and bustling Chick-fil-A will eventually fill the old KFC on Ritchie Highway.
Chick-fil-A has already signed the lease for the KFC building and has plans to move in but, with other vacant buildings around town, I thought it would be interesting to see if readers would be more open to the business coming if it were in a new location.
The reasons why the old KFC isn’t an ideal location for Chick-fil-A seem to be endless: traffic issues, parking nightmares and congestion. On a recent Patch article, one reader raised an interesting question about the fast-food chain’s location.
Patch reported last week that the former M&T Bank location still remains closed following an August 2012 fire. A reader commented that the bank's location would be a better fit for Chick-fil-A once it was repaired.
Besides the former M&T Bank, there are vacant storefronts in Robinson Crossing (two right next to each other) and there are several in the 1st Mariner Bank Square Complex on Ritchie Highway.
Would you be more open to a Chick-fil-A in Severna Park if it were in a different location? What location do you think would work better? Tell us in the comments.
