Atlanta Falcons' New Stadium to Feature Perpetually Closed Chick-fil-A Location

Atlanta Falcons New Stadium Has A Chick-fil-A Inside That Doesn't Open On Sunday

Atlanta Falcons New Stadium Has A Chick-fil-A Inside That Doesn't Open On Sunday

Mercedes-Benz Stadium is opening this month in Atlanta, where it will host Falcons games and Atlanta United (MLS) matches, as well as a few college football games and concerts.

After nine years of planning, and more than three years of construction, this dynamic, fan-centric modern marvel is nearly ready to rock.

That means that Chick-fil-A will have a concession area in a stadium where most people attend said stadium on a day they won't be open. That distraction was unveiled this week, when they finally completed their $2 Billion Mercedes Benz stadium.

Chick-fil-A, a fast-food chain with headquarters in Atlanta, has a concession booth inside the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium but will only serve patrons at events Monday through Saturday, even though most National Football League games are played on Sundays, the Washington Post reported.

Among the many restaurants and food choices that will open inside the new home of the Atlanta Falcons, is Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A. For those who see the Chick-fil-A at Mercedes-Benz Stadium at a Falcons game, get a craving, and can't scratch the itch., they'll just have to wait until Monday, and check out one of the other 216 locations spread throughtout the state. Chick-fil-A is not open on Sundays.

The devout Christian decided in 1946 to close the stores on Sundays for religious reasons and to give employees one set day off a week.

Every lover of Chick-fil-A knows that Sunday pain. Former "Top Chef" contestant Kevin Gillespie has a stand on the 200-level concourse where he'll be selling his "COS" (closed-on-Sunday) chicken sandwich for anyone who needs that holy trinity of buttered bun, chicken, and pickles on the Sabbath. Another breaded chicken sandwich is available at the Westside Works stand, a partnership between Falcons owner Arthur Blank and the local community.

"We're always looking for ways to get Chick-fil-A to our loyal and passionate customers in the most convenient and personal ways".
