BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) — There is some bittersweet news for Chick-Fil-A fans. The company announced the restaurant in Bakersfield is now closed for several months to begin a remodeling project.
The restaurant closed on Thursday, Aug. 26. The remodeling will help streamline service for customers and improve conditions for their employees. Restaurant officials say the corner of the building will be expanded to allow for more space and efficiency in its drive-thru line.
The company didn’t provide a reopening date. Chick-Fil-A says employees can still earn their normal paycheck by completing training videos and personal development courses during the closure.
The nearest Chick-Fil-A locations are in Fresno, Palmdale and Santa Clarita. A second Bakersfield Chick-Fil-A location is set to open on Rosedale Highway in the future. Officials say there are no developments just yet.
