Construction began last week on the newest Chick-fil-A location in Midland.

According to the Midland Reporter-Telegram, the new location is located on Loop 250 and Highway 191 on the northeast corner next to Tracker Boat Center.

Franchisee Alejandra Solis is excited to be opening the store closer to home since she started out with the franchise in 2000 in San Angelo.

Ground breaking for the store was Monday with the scheduled opening to be by the Fall of 2017.
