Chick-fil-A will open its newest Fort Worth restaurant at 2900 Western Center Blvd. on Nov. 14, just a week after the chain opened its newest metro-Dallas restaurant in Ennis on Nov. 7. Both restaurants bring about 250 jobs to the area.

The newest Fort Worth Chick-fil-A restaurant is a new adventure for Chick-fil-A Operator Matt Albrecht, who grew up across the Louisiana state line. He played football and served as team captain his senior year at Louisiana College, where he earned a degree in management and marketing. After graduation, Albrecht decided to pursue a career path with the chain, serving as store director at his hometown

He worked in the Houston area as director of operations for a local Chick-fil-A. Becoming a Chick-fil-A franchise owner is no small feat as the company receives nearly 60,000 applications yearly for approximately 100 franchise opportunities.

In 2017, Albrecht’s was selected to operate the Chick-fil-A at the Parks in Arlington, earning the Symbol of Success and Champion’s Club awards — the chain’s highest awards for its Operators — only a year later. Albrecht’s new location at Western Center Blvd. is a family affair, with his brother-in-law and parents serving alongside him. He and his wife, Michelle, along with their three young sons are thrilled to put roots down in Fort Worth.

“I am excited to have an opportunity to serve the Fort Worth community both inside and outside my restaurant,” said Albrecht, in a news release. “I am passionate about helping my Team Members grow personally and professionally as together we make a positive impact in the lives of all who work with us and be a light in our community and to our guests, who become part of our family.”

Albrecht’s restaurant is 4,900-square-foot and includes dual-lane drive-thru merging into a single pick-up point that can handle upwards of 200 cars an hour, a heritage restaurant design that showcases a vintage-inspired interior with floor-to-ceiling windows and drop pendant lighting, a 110-seat dining room with a two-story indoor playground and free Wi-Fi, along with a 16-seat outdoor patio.

The overnight, 12-hour grand opening First 100 Campout party includes the tradition of up to 100 adults winning a digital offer card for a year of free Chick-fil-A meals. Participants can start gathering at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 for registration that begins in the restaurant parking lot at

6 p.m.

Fort Worth’s first Chick-fil-A opened in 1977 at Ridgmar Mall. The Western Center Blvd. restaurant becomes the 19th opening this year in Texas, which continues to be a core growth state for the chain
