It has a Facebook page. How much more official can it get?

On Thursday evening, Chick-fil-A officially announced what Wichita had already suspected. It will build a new free-standing restaurant in front of the Lowe’s at Ridge and Maple.

The new restaurant’s owner/operator will be Jason Lansdown, the same man who opened the Chick-fil-A at 21st and Maize in 2012. Maple and Ridge should be ready to go in late summer.
