Upstate New York residents are now just days away from feasting at Chick-Fil-A! And we aren't talking about a rest-stop.

In 2022, Hudson Valley Post reported New York State residents would soon be able to order Chick-fil-A at some rest stops across New York on the New York State Thruway.

The location is the seventh new service area to open to Thruway customers as part of the $450 million project to redevelop and modernize all 27 Thruway service areas.

The Ardsley Service Area is located on I-87 northbound between exit 6A (Stew Leonard Drive) and exit 7 (Ardsley - NY Route 9A). The facility is more than 14,000 square feet, officials say.

Months prior, on Wednesday, May 4, a 20,000-square-foot service area, featuring Chick-Fil-A, officially opened for business at the Plattekill rest stop on the New York State Thruway.

While it's great to have some Chick-Fil-A locations, a rest stop isn't the same as a real store.

Until next week, the closest full Chick-Fil-A restaurants to the Hudson Valley are located inside the Danbury Mall, the Paramus Park Mall, in Brookfield, CT, or Ramsey, NJ, according to Chick-fil-A's website.

That will change next week.
