What once seemed to some like a pipe dream, or at the very least far-off, is now reality in Western New York.
The first Chick-fil-A in the Buffalo area opened for business at 6:30 a.m. Thursday on Walden Avenue in Cheektowaga.
It even welcomed people to camp out for 24 hours in hopes of winning free food for one year.
But the restaurant halved the length of the challenge due to weather, sending the "First 100" home Wednesday evening.
If you're planning on patronizing the restaurant during what's sure to be a busy opening day and weekend, you'll find what you should know about the traffic patterns here.
And if you're looking for a job and think Chick-fil-A is the place to be, the company is still hiring for open positions at the location. You can find a link on how to apply here.
