New Chick-fil-A opens this week in Leesburg

Leesburg’s new Chick-fil-A restaurant has announced it will officially open its doors later this week. The big day for the new location at the Oaklawn development will be this Friday, September 24.

The restaurant at Oaklawn sits at the prominent corner of Battlefield Parkway SE and Miller Drive SE. It features a double drive-thru lane — now standard at most new CFA locations.

As part of the opening celebrations, Chick-fil-A will be giving free food for a year to 100 local heroes. They are also donating $25,000 to a local food bank.

The Oaklawn development is home to a new Dunkin’ Donuts, which opened earlier this summer next door to the Chick-fil-A. It’s also the future home of Loudoun County’s first Sonic Drive-In restaurant, scheduled to open in 2022.

Meanwhile, just down the road at the Compass Creek development, work is underway on a new Chipotle, a new Popeyes, and new Starbucks. Bruster’s Real Ice Cream and Buffalo Wing Factory have also been named as future tenants.

All these current and future options mean this area of Leesburg around the airport is going to be a future dining destination.

    Just a reference so it is presented correctly. Dunkin’ dropped the “donuts” over a year ago. It is just Dunkin’ now. I know that The Burn wants to get that correct (they usually do good with that).

      Hah. You would think. We’re old school. The trade name is Dunkin’, but the brand’s URL is still dunkindonuts.com and the corporate name is still Dunkin Donuts LLC so we keep using the Donuts.

    How many Chick Fil A’s does this place need? We’re growing into a fast food strip mall town, exit on the turnpike. Zero character.
