Chick-fil-A opens restaurant at university

ANDERSON — School food is not known as being a first choice for a meal by most students, but that was before Anderson University brought a Chick-fil-A to campus.

“A lot of my friends like to eat here twice a day,” said Abigail Robertson, 19, an Anderson University student studying elementary education.

Chartwells Dining Service has partnered with the national chain to create a licensed location called a Chick-fil-A Express in the Raven Haven.

“Chartwells and Anderson University are excited to provide the Anderson University campus and the community of Anderson the opportunity to enjoy Chick-fil-A,” said Andrew Robbins, director of dining services for Chartwells at Anderson University.

The menu for the restaurant is limited but includes chicken sandwiches, nuggets and their famous waffle fries.

Robertson was ordering at the restaurant for the first time on Friday and said the limited menu was not an issue.

“I think I would have gotten chicken nuggets even if they had a full menu,” she said.

There was quite a bit of excitement among the students about the new restaurants that opened in the Raven Haven on Dec. 10.

“The line was all the way out the doors,” said MyLynn Allen, 18, an Anderson University student originally from Toledo, Ohio.

Chartwells has also added an Olive’s Bistro offering subs, toasted sandwiches, wraps, flatbreads and soups.

Sabrina Yeary, 19, from Bedford, who is studying to be an elementary teacher at the college, said the new restaurant options are great and she especially enjoys Olive’s menu.

“If I wasn’t an athlete, I would eat Chick-fil-A every day,” she said. “The waffle fries are the best.”

Yeary said she loves the fast and friendly service at the eateries.

“College kids are like this,” she said snapping her fingers. “We need our food to go, and we need it quick. They have good management here.”
