COVINGTON, Ga. - Construction will begin Monday, Jan. 21 on a bigger and better location of the Covington Chick-fil-A, according to a statement provided by Callie Bowers, of CP Communications. 

The new location will be at 4102 Highway 278, which is less than a mile away from its current Newton Plaza restaurant. 

The new location is "tentatively scheduled to open early this summer," Bowers said.

It will be on a larger site to allow for increased square footage, seats, parking spots and drive-thru, she said. 

Bowers said the Newton Plaza location will close and details about what will happen to the building are not presently available.

There should be minimal downtime once construction is complete to transition into the new store.
