The week has al­ready been a busy one for the ne w Chick- f il - A in Rock­mart, as owner Zach Thomas has been host­ing break­fasts, lunches and din­ners for com­mu­nity lead­ers, lo­cal pas­tors and more al­ready.

Thomas said that he ex­pects a packed house and park­ing lot for the openi ng, and al­ready has plans in mind for how to han­dle the com­ing guests.

“We’ve al­ready worked out an ar­range­ment for traf­fic con­trol help from the Rock­mart Po­lice De­part­ment,” he said.

Ch i c k - f i l - A’s ne w Rock­mart store of­fi­cially opens at 6 a.m. on Thurs­day.

To­day will be just as busy with a lineup start­ing for the First 100 cus­tomers con­tes­tants camp- ing out for the op­por­tu­nity to win Chick-fil-A for a year (see this story on­line on Tues­day for con­test rules and more,) and t hey’ll have to s t ay through un­til Thurs­day morn­ing in or­der to win the prize.

Though Chick-fil-A has been host­ing a num­ber of private events in the lead- up to the restau­rant’s grand open­ing on Thurs­day morn­ing, a rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mony will be held for all to en­joy.

On Mon­day, the restau­rant held a ded­i­ca­tion cer­e­mony for the restau­rant’s play­ground. Tues­day saw pas­tors come for a prayer break­fast, and din­ner for em­ploy­ees and their fam­ily which was moved to Crossview Com­mu­nity Church due to the po­ten­tial for wet weather caused by the rem­nants of Hur­ri­cane Irma.

Con­struc­tion on the new store wrapped up late in Au­gust, and hir­ing be­gan dur­ing the late sum­mer months to staff the new store in Rock­mart.

Lo­cated off Nathan Dean Park­way, the new store has drive­way en­trances off the east­bound lanes, and one drive con­nect­ing the restau­rant to Floyd Pri­mary Care’s of­fice at the in­ter­sec­tion with High­way 113.

Store hours are reg­u­larly 6 a. m. to 10 p. m. Mon­days through Satur­days. All Chick-fil-A restau­rants are closed on Sun­days.
