Oak Creek — Drexel Town Square's new Chick-fil-A restaurant is set to open in mid-March, a public relations representative for the company announced Jan. 20.

The Oak Creek Common Council unanimously approved a conditional use permit for Chick-fil-A to open a drive-through restaurant near the corner of Drexel and Howell avenues last year.

The restaurant will be led by Danica Anderson, who has many close ties to the Chick-fil-A brand as well as to the Midwest.

Traditionally, new Chick-fil-A restaurants offer a "First 100" promotion the first day of business. The restaurant's first 100 adult customers will receive gift cards worth a weekly free meal for one year.

An official opening date for the Drexel Town Square location has not yet been announced.
