Chick-fil-A planned at Costco site on Bardstown Road
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Chick-fil-A restaurant is planned within the proposed Coscto development on Bardstown Road, according to Louisville Metro Planning and Design records.
The city planning staff received a formal request last week to confirm that the zoning on the roughly 20-acre site at 3408 Bardstown Road will allow a Chick-fil-A, including a 24-hour drive-through window, outdoor seating and an indoor playground.
A few days earlier, the local developer behind the Costco plan filed a request to designate an "outparcel" at the front of the site along Bardstown Road where the restaurant is planned.
Mark Blieden of Louisville's Kaden Cos., the local developer, did not respond to requests for comment Monday.
Mark Baldwin, a Chick-fil-A spokesman based in Atlanta, said in an email that he cannot confirm the plan but, "Louisville is an important market for Chick-fil-A, so we are always exploring potential growth opportunities within the area."
Chick-fil-A has 11 locations in the Louisville area, according to its website.
Costco, the bulk-warehouse retailer, will likely start work on the store next spring with an eye toward a late summer or fall 2016 opening, said Jackie Frank, a Costco official, on July 30 after a zoning hearing in Louisville.
