Chick-fil-A + 5 Points = Perfect Fit

Finally...Chick-fil-A Destined for 5 Points
After years of wishful thinking, plans finally seem to be in the works to bring the incredibly popular franchise to Columbia's 5 points.

If I've said it once, I've said it 1000 times that the spot currently occupied by Hardee's would be PERFECT for a Chick-fil-A store. Our morning Starbucks crew has pined over it many times as we suck down our Americanos and Lattes. Tonight, reported that this fleeting thought may actually come to fruition as Hardee's lease ends in 2010.

Hardee's is a fine enough place to eat. Having said this, the Hardee's on Harden St. has never really been a place that in town workers and/or USC students really adopted as a destination place to dine. Whatever the reason, this particular store just hasn't created the right stigma that the location commands. In my years in Columbia, I've never once said or heard the words, "Hey...Let's hit Hardee's on Harden." Chick-fil-A will change this.

Any readers of this post may ask, "If you believe in the success so much, why haven't you opened the store yourself?" The answer is simply, $$$$. It takes a grand amount of money and an extreme commitment to acquire a Chick-fil-A franchise.

Kudos to the folks who are going to make this work. I know a lot of folks who will be frequent patrons. It's been a winner waiting to happen for a long time...

Wow! Actually you should google opening a Chic-fil-a. Its only a 5k buy-in, but a very thorough background check to see how religious you are.

I was just seeking this info for a while. After 6 hours of continuous Googleing, finally I got it in your website. I wonder what's the Google's issue that does not rank this kind of informative sites closer to the top. Usually the top websites are full of garbage.
