It has a cult-like following, a larger chunk of the fast food chicken market than KFC, and millions of loyal fans who devour the restaurant’s tender breaded chicken sandwiches and famous waffle fries.
And it’s now in Las Vegas.
The popular national chain with over 2,000 locations in 43 states has six Chick-fil-A restaurants in the Las Vegas area, with four more on the way. The six existing restaurants include brand new ones on the Las Vegas Strip and on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.

The newest Chick-fil-A in Las Vegas is the one at Planet Hollywood Hotel & Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
New Chick-fil-A at Planet Hollywood seems tame for now. Nowhere to sit. Here’s a live stream: https://t.co/PtLHzvmDeQ #FridayVibes #vegas #LasVegas #chickfila @VitalVegas @LasVegasLocally pic.twitter.com/aK7EHblwLR

Future Chick-fil-A Las Vegas Locations
The company has publicly stated they plan to have a total of between 8 to 10 locations in Las Vegas within the next five years. The company has announced three more in the works, with another yet to be formally announced:
1) Craig Road & Scott Robinson
1720 W Craig Road
North Las Vegas, NV 89031
This is expected to be open this year. Once opened, it will be the northernmost Chick-Fil-A in Las Vegas.
2) 1100 S. Fort Apache Road
Located on the western side of Las Vegas, this is on the corner of S. Forth Apache Road and W. Charleston. It’s located just a 1 1/2 miles east of the Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa, and less than a mile south of the Suncoast Hotel & Casino.
Once opened, it will be the westernmost location.
3) 3841 W. Flamingo Road
This Chick-Fil-A location will be located in a new hotel and retail complex just west of the Strip, next to the Palms Hotel & Casino on Flamingo Boulevard. It will be directly across the street from the Gold Coast Hotel & Casino and by the Rio.
4) A 4th Chick-Fil-A in the Vegas valley has yet to be announced publicly, however there have been plans submitted. The location (marked by a Chick-Fil-A sign), is on the southern end of Las Vegas Boulevard, at the intersection of George Crockett Road.
* Two of the six Las Vegas Chick-Fil-A restaurants opened on January 25, 2017, with very long lines, and lots of happy customers. A third location right off I-15 opened on March 30, 2017.
* The Las Vegas locations are the first Chick-fil-A restaurants in the state of Nevada. There are two in the Reno and Sparks area.
* According to AdWeek, Chick-fil-A is the nation’s most successful fast food restaurant, in terms of sales per store. On average, each restaurant has sales of $3.1 million per year.
Similar to In-N-Out, Chick-fil-A is privately owned. Unlike In-N-Out however, Chick-fil-A franchises out its restaurants. Currently there are over 2,000 Chick-fil-A franchises, and in those stores generated a combined $6 billion plus in sales. Pretty impressive for a company founded back in 1946 with one little restaurant.
It’s combination of over-the-top, friendly service (especially for a fast food joint), tasty, unique fried chicken flavor with pickle and soft bun, and decadent shakes has made Chick-fil-A even more successful than KFC, despite the fact KFC has many more locations and gets an extra day of sales. (All Chick-fil-A restaurants are closed on Sundays).
