Pelham Chick-Fil-A to close for five months

PELHAM – The Chick-Fil-A location on Cahaba Valley Road is set to close today, Friday, May 31, at 3 p.m.

The store is being torn down and a new facility constructed at the same site. The new store is expected to open in about five months.

Barbara Zouboukos, who owns the business with her husband Robert, said the new store will be bigger and better. The store first opened in Pelham 22 years ago.

“We’ve outgrown our current store,” Zouboukos said. “We need a bigger kitchen and more space. The new store will be a different color and it will look nothing like the old store.”
