A new Chick-fil-A at the intersection of SW College Road and SW 48th Avenue in Ocala is taking shape as construction crews make progress towards its completion.
In recent weeks, crews have been moving quickly to complete the exterior of the 5,875-square-foot, one-story building that will house the popular chicken franchise’s third location in Ocala.
No opening date has been announced for the new Chick-fil-A, which is located at 5048 SW 48th Avenue in Ocala. Currently, the fast-food restaurant operates two other locations in Ocala, both of which are located along SW College Road.
Chick-fil-A joins other restaurants across the city that are in various stages of construction, including many that have opened new locations earlier this year.
