The first franchised Chick-fil-A restaurant in Canada will feature our famous Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich and other signature menu items.

Chick-fil-A is proud to welcome customers to its first international franchisee-owned restaurant at 709 Yonge Street in Toronto, ON. The 4,400 sq. ft. restaurant was designed to provide exceptional service and a seamless customer experience with innovative ordering technology and seating for 70 guests. The restaurant will open on September 6.

When Torontonians take their first bite of the original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich and other signature menu items, they’ll experience for themselves how Chick-fil-A became the favourite quick-service restaurant of U.S. consumers.†

Chick-fil-A’s philosophy is to serve guests freshly prepared food, made simply. The famous original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich is made with a Canadian-raised chicken breast filet, breaded by hand and served on a buttered, toasted bun with pickles.

More about Chick-fil-A food:

  • Chick-fil-A Yonge & Bloor serves two premium coffee blends that are roasted in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and specifically developed for Canadian tastes. In addition to featuring Canadian-raised chicken, some of the menu’s baked goods, dairy, eggs and produce are sourced in Canada.
  • The Chick-fil-A® Chicken Biscuit is a breakfast-sized portion of chicken breast, prepared and cooked the same way as the chicken in the original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich, but served on a fluffy buttermilk biscuit. Chick-fil-A Team Members handroll and bake biscuits each morning.
  • Chick-fil-A® Nuggets are available breaded or grilled, and they’re perfect for pairing with one of the seven delicious Chick-fil-A dipping sauces.
  • The most popular item on the Chick-fil-A menu in the U.S., Chick-fil-A Waffle Potato Fries™, are made from real potatoes and cooked in canola oil, then seasoned with sea salt.
  • The Chick-fil-A salad entrées (Spicy Southwest, Cobb, and Grilled Market) feature freshly prepared and nutritious ingredients that are hand chopped in restaurant every day.
  • Chick-fil-A® Lemonade is simple, delicious, and contains just three ingredients: water, sugar, and real lemon juice — not from concentrate.
  • No meal is complete without a special treat – whether you’re craving a health-conscious option such as the Fruit Cup and Greek Yogurt Parfait, or a classic hand-spun milkshake – our restaurants have a menu of choice.

Local ownership

The restaurant will be independently owned and operated by Wilson Yang. His restaurant has created more than 100 local jobs across a team made up of part-time positions, and full-time director-level staff who are responsible for managing HR & training, finance, guest experience, and culinary operations.

“I’m excited to be Chick-fil-A’s first Operator in Toronto. My wife Drew and I recently moved nearby to the restaurant, and I can’t imagine a better city to live and work,” says Yang. “At Chick-fil-A, Torontonians will find great food and quick service, in a welcoming environment.”

Exceptional service

Treating guests with care is a big part of the Chick-fil-A experience. Chick-fil-A Yonge & Bloor is open and bright with clean lines and little touches like fresh flowers on tables. The location is designed for speed with in-line ordering technology that doesn’t sacrifice human interaction; this includes Team Members greeting guests in-line and taking orders on a tablet. Dining room hosts will refresh beverages, check in on guests tableside and provide hospitality throughout the day.

Chick-fil-A One Bloor East will open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Friday and 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday. Like all Chick-fil-A restaurants, the restaurant will close on Sundays to allow Team Members to have a dedicated day off.
