BECKLEY, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Renovations recently began at the Beckley Galleria Chick-fil-A location as part of a remodel set to take place over the course of the coming months.
July 1st marked the beginning of the location’s remodeling process, which is set to continue through September. But owner-operator Richard Jarrell is not content simply having patrons of the area wait until Fall to get their hands on one of the establishment’s trademark original sandwiches.
On July 5th, less than a week following the temporary closing of the Galleria location, a Mobile Drive-Thru location was announced at the Crossroads Mall in Prosperity.
“As you probably know, our Galleria store in Beckley on Eisenhower Drive is closed for remodeling,” Jarrell said in an announcement. “We will be closed for three months. So here’s what we’ve done, out at Crossroads Mall, in the back parking lot, we’ve created a Mobile Drive-Thru.”
From the onset, this addition not only provided patrons with the option to continue dining with Chick-fil-A – on the go, nonetheless – but also offered the option of ordering through the convenience of the Chick-fil-A One App with the Mobile Drive-Thru option.
Two days later, on Thursday, July 7th, Jarrell announced yet another option for Raleigh County residents to get their Chick-fil-A fix – a Pop-Up Express food trailer on the lot of the L&S Toyota location off Route 16 near the Galleria location.
The location comes complete with several menu options, the option to play by cash or card, and a drive-thru tent which allows customers to receive orders comfortably no matter the weather. Also featured is a towering, inflatable Chick-fil-A cow mascot hoisting a sign bearing the phrase, “EAT MOR CHIKIN,” a signature franchise slogan first seen on an Atlanta billboard in 1995.
The following day, Friday, July 8th, a third pop-up Chick-fil-A location was announced, this time in Daniels by First Community Bank on C&O Dam Road.
The location proved to be an immediate hit, with supplies being exhausted less than an hour after the opening. “We’re excited to be out here,” Jarrell exclaimed of the Daniels location. “In fact, [Friday] morning, we got slammed, and we sold out in 40 minutes,”
Jarrell says that the plan remains to continue operating both Chick-fil-A Pop-Up Express locations and the Crossroads Mall Mobile Drive-Thru through the remodeling process of the Galleria location.
The Crossroads Mall Mobile Drive-Thru location in the rear of the mall will feature a full menu selection, as well as the option to order both through the Chick-fil-A One app, or live by drive-thru.
The L&S Toyota Pop-Up Express location will serve customers from 11:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Saturday, and will feature the limited, mobile menu.
The Daniels Pop-Up Express location near First Community Bank will operate 11:00am to 6:00pm Monday through Saturday, and will feature the limited, mobile menu.
