Rebecca Jones eats lunch with her daughters Lydia, 1, and Nadia, 3, at the Augusta Exchange Chick-fil-A. "We're really glad they've reopened," Jones said.

The restaurant at 202 Robert C. Daniel Jr. Parkway reopened after a six-week remodeling of its interior and exterior. The updated design reflects a new corporate concept.

The restaurant was gutted to accommodate a different layout, modern furnishings and a new playground.

“It’s got more of an upscale cafe feel to it,” franchise owner Kenny Hanna said.

The restaurant also now has double drive-though lanes.

“Our biggest challenge has always been having one lane,” Hanna said.

Therestaurant, which opened in 2000, is one of the first to feature the new Chick-fil-A concept and was chosen because of its high sales and community support.

But I'm hearing that the expansion caused a

net loss in seating. I hope that's not really the case...

Augusta Exchange

Hmm??? I'm wondering why they decided to renovate the Augusta Exchange location into the new concept , and not the others in the CSRA.

I rarely go near this location. It's a pain to get in and out at lunch

One at a time

Can't do them all simultaneously and the franchisees have a say in it too.

Not sure how much say the

Not sure how much say the owner-operator has in the matter since the actual establishments are all company-owned. That particular store is actually the 2nd highest grossing store in the state, as I was once told by a team leader there. Worth noting that they donated all of the furniture that was replaced in the store as well.

And could you imagine if ALL of the Chickfila stores in the CSRA closed at the same time to renovate?! A worse state of emergency could only be caused by all the Krispy Kreme's doing it at the same time, too...

There's a lot of this

There's a lot of this indirect promotion on the front page, including homes for sale and any positive news from certain financial institutions.

There are no franchisees

There are no franchisees (corporate owns all of them). The unit operators have no say. I believe Washington road was just renovated four or five years ago.

.
Probably so, but it's common practice and if it help the local economy to bring in a few bucks, (and adds a few tax dollars) then that's good.
