After some hiccups with final construction, the Chick-fil-A at 1494 North Point Village Center will open on April 5. An opening date for the store was originally set for March 28.
The decision was prompted by a “siding issue” and the impact of weather, according to the company.
Despite the date change, the “First 100” grand opening event is still on. The first 100 people to enter the restaurant will be in for a “crazy night of games, food, [and] fun for the entire family,” according to the company.
To date, 29 staff have been hired. The company hopes to hire a total of 70 to 80 employees.

A former Burger King in the North Point Village Center has been demolished this morning, as its replacement is hoping to get building soon.
According to a post on the Facebook page for Chick-fil-A North Point Village, the demolition project at 1494 North Point Village Center began at about 7 a.m. Monday. “Pending a fair winter,” according to the post, the Chick-fil-A will be built on the site and ready for the public by March 15.
Had our first construction phone conference today with some great news:1. Demo begins Monday 10/2 on the old BK…
The new Chick-fil-A will be more than 1 1/2 times the size of the building that had been on the site, franchisees Larry and Andrea Everett explained in an earlier post on the Facebook page.
Chick-fil-A has a very specific design just for North Point Village. This is NOT your standard restaurant footprint. The space needed to match the image for the community exceeded the footprint of the old BK. So Chick-fil-A absorbed the cost and designed a beautiful store that mirrors the expectations for the community.
The Everetts say renderings of the future restaurant “do not [do] it justice.”
The Chick-fil-A was approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in March 2016. It will be the second Chick-fil-A in Reston, along with the existing location at 12160 Sunset Hills Road, about 2 1/2 miles away.

Plans to tear down the former Burger King at North Point Village Center and replace it with a Chick-fil-A appear to be moving forward.
Fairfax County earlier this week processed a permit application for demolition of the former Burger King restaurant at 1494 North Point Village Center. The demolition must be done to make room for the new Chick-fil-A, which will be more than 1 1/2 times the size of the current building on the site.
The new Chick-fil-A was approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors in March 2016. It will be the second Chick-fil-A in Reston, along with the existing location at 12160 Sunset Hills Road, about 2 1/2 miles away. Another chicken restaurant, Boston Market, sits next to the North Point site.
We have reached out to North Point property manager Lerner Retail for more details about when the demolition process will begin and how long it will take. We will provide that information when it is made available.
The permitting process for a new Chick-fil-A in North Point Village Center continues.
Fairfax County records show the application to build the new free-standing restaurant was processed last month.
The new restaurant will replace the former Burger King at the location (1494 North Point Village Center), which closed in 2014. It is planned to be more than 1 1/2 times the size of the old building, which will be torn down in the process.
Another chicken eatery, Boston Market, sits next door to the site.
The new Chick-fil-A was approved by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors last spring. It will be the second Chick-fil-A in Reston, along with the existing location at 12160 Sunset Hills Road, about 2 1/2 miles away.
Reston’s Chick-Fil-A, located at 12160 Sunset Hills Rd. completed its remodeling and reopened on Saturday.
The restaurant had been closed since late August to receive a complete overhaul.
Improvements include new equipment inside; an expansion to dual drive-thru lanes; and new landscaping.
The Reston location had also removed the children’s play area in favor of more seating, store management said on the restaurant’s Facebook page.

For the entire month of February, Chick-fil-A restaurants nationwide will give customers free cups of its new specialty-grade THRIVE Farmers hot or iced coffee all day long.
The Atlanta-based restaurant chain partnered with THRIVE Farmers Coffee in August 2014, and the new coffee qualifies as specialty grade per the standards of the Specialty Coffee Association of America and only the top 10 percent of coffee consumed worldwide meets this quality designation, says a Chick-fil-A spokesman.
The sale of each cup of coffee provides direct revenue to THRIVE Farmers network of family farmers in Central America, allowing them to earn up to 10 times more than farmers earn in traditional revenue models.
This offer includes 12 ounce hot or 16 ounce iced sizes and is available while supplies last. The offer is available anytime during regular restaurant hours and is limited to one cup of coffee per customer, per visit. No additional purchase is necessary and no substitutions are available.
