Chick-fil-A to replace Macaroni Grill: Brentwood mayor

Chick-fil-A will be on the next Brentwood Planning and Zoning agenda, Mayor Pat Kelly said Friday in his monthly coffee with residents. The new franchise plans to be at the current Romano’s Macaroni Grill site (8590 Eager Road). Brentwood City Administrator Bola Akande confirmed Monday that the city is “aware of the company’s tentative plan.”

Kelly said a representative of the developer met with the city Monday morning.

Chick-fil-A will be leasing the property from Macaroni Grill. A new Chick-fil-A will be built at the location. Kelly said the deal has already been done between Chick-fil-A and Macaroni Grill.

Kelly said an average Chick-fil-A brings in about $3 million a year, which is 25 percent more than Macaroni Grill. He said that’s amazing for a fast food restaurant, when the average ticket is about $7.

Macaroni Grill is currently open. When called, an employee hadn’t heard when it might close. The Creve Coeur location closed in October 2013.

Chik-fil-A is set to build where Macaroni Grill is now.

  1. I will never patronize that establishment!!! Hope the business fails miserably due to their backwards attitudes.

    • I’ve never seen anything to imply the views of this chain. The now deceased owner expressed some things I don’t agree with, but that’s not the same thing.
      Sometimes people say things that we disagree with. Get over it.

  2. What is forgotten here, is we live in the USA. we are free to express our opinions. While I may not agree with them,i will fight for your right to have them.Now as far as I am concerned, if two men or two women want to marry, why not. Does not hurt me in any way.

  3. Love Chick fil A! I’ve had nothing less than great experiences and food there. If we avoided every establishment where we disagree with the personal stand/lifestyle of the owner, we’d stay at home…..A LOT!

  4. I think this is a great fast food option for the area, especially since the other nearby choices are McDonald’s and Burger King. I’m excited!! 🙂
