Long Island now counts nine Chick-fil-A locations with its newest restaurant now open.
Erin Elko, who operates the Chick-fil-A in Hicksville, launched another spot in Levittown Sept. 19 at 3859 Hempstead Turnpike.
It officially opened at 6 a.m. for dine-in, drive-thru, and carry-out services.
Elko, a South Carolina native, worked with Chick-fil-A for nearly a decade as marketing director, and later as operations director, before owning her own store in Hicksville in 2016.
“I’m so grateful for the opportunity to invest in tomorrow’s leaders and be a positive influence for our community,” said Elko on the opening of her new location.
The company has been phasing in new eateries and recently announced plans to branch out to West Babylon, Riverhead and Farmingville.
Chick-fil-A opened its last location on the island in Huntington Station last winter.
