With her parents still residing in Brookfield, Scanlon and her husband, John, and their infant son are thrilled to be opening Connecticut’s first Chick-fil-A restaurant.

“Chick-fil-A provides the ideal opportunity to own my own business and have a positive impact on my hometown,” Scanlon said. “I couldn’t be more excited to bring Chick-fil-A’s freshly prepared food and signature customer service to Connecticut.” 

The new Connecticut Chick-fil-A is one of 88 stand-alone, in-line and drive-thru restaurants the chain plans to open nationally this year, creating more than 6,700 new jobs. Chick-fil-A continued to grow in 2013, increasing the number of new restaurants initially planned for the year and reporting record-setting annual sales of more than $5 billion.

Chick-fil-A’s signature chicken sandwich was last week named the tastiest chicken sandwich in Consumer Reports 2014 Fast Food Survey of 32,405 readers, repeating the results of the magazine’s last fast food report in 2011. Respondents, who were asked about their experiences at 65 fast food chains, not only said Chick-fil-A’s chicken sandwich was the best tasting but also rated Chick-fil-A as number one overall out of 65 chains in customer service and cleanliness. 

In addition, the chain was a 2013 winner of Nation’s Restaurant News’ annual recognition of “the best the restaurant industry has to offer.” The annual award, given to five industry recipients this year, honors chains who have a proven track record of leadership, operational excellence, market performance, innovation and community involvement.
