New Destin Chick-Fil-A coming soon to help alleviate traffic problems

🙌 🙌 🙌

On Monday night, the Destin City Council unanimously approved the Major Development Order to build a new Chick-Fil-A at 1021 Highway 98 East. This will replace the existing Chick-Fil-A.

The location is currently the vacant Gulfview Plaza, which residents will note is only 3 parcels west of Chick-Fil-A’s existing location on Highway 98.

It’s no secret that the current Chick-Fil-A has some traffic issues, with cars regularly backing-up onto Highway 98 trying to get into the parking lot or drive-thru. It’s an issue that the Destin City Council has heard from the public for quite some time, along with Whataburger traffic at the foot of the bridge.

Chick-Fil-A site plan

The new site plans include a new building, 52 parking spaces and a dedicated drive-thru lane (2 lanes) that will wrap around the entire 1.38 acres.

  • The ‘stacking’ of vehicles is the main problem at the existing location.
  • The new location will allow for the stacking of at least 36 vehicles, not including the ordering point.
