Kenersville Community,

I’m excited to share that our restaurant will reopen on Monday, March 30th for drive-thru and Mobile curbside ordering. We will be open from 8:00am – 8:00pm.

While our restaurant was temporarily closed, it was thoroughly disinfected and deep cleaned by a third party cleaner. Any Team Member who may have experienced symptoms consistent with COVID-19 will only return to work after meeting clearance criteria outlined by the CDC. To ensure the safety of our guests and our team, we are constantly monitoring the health of our Team Members and have taken robust precautions to provide a safe dining experience.

As a reminder, we will be serving guests in the drive-thru and Mobile curbside only. For a quick, limited-contact experience, please order your favorite meal on the
Chick-fil-A App and pick up in the drive-thru or at one of our designated Mobile Curbside parking spaces.

Thank you for your patience as we worked through this process. I will continue to monitor this closely, as we all are, in the coming weeks and months ahead. We look forward to serving you soon!

David Grix
Operator, Chick-fil-A of Kernersville
