Demolition under way on Chick-fil-A Dwarf House. Reaction: ‘Makes my heart a little sad’ to ‘See you in November.’

It might be the most photographed event of the year in Northwest Georgia. Just hours into the actual demolition work, we’re already seeing — and posting — photos and videos from the demolition of the Chick-fil-A Dwarf House on Shorter Avenue. Crews were busy just after 9 a.m. Wednesday, starting both on the building itself as well as the parking lots, drive through and other areas.

Most impressive was the efficiency of the operation: As tons of asphalt and pavement were scooped up adjacent to Provino’s, dump trucks were at the ready to quickly contain it and haul it from the scene. At the entrance, ground work was under way as even the dirt below the restaurant will be “rearranged.”

All the while, operator Greg Major and his management team watched up close as the “scrape and build” began in earnest. By Friday, it should all be rubble.

And by November, Truett’s Chick-fil-A will stand in its place. One thing is certain: business is picking up at the Riverside Parkway location. Chick-fil-A associates — armed with notebooks and walkie-talkies — had at least a dozen vehicles moving smoothly through the temporary location at 9:30 a.m.

Despite what’s the come, loyal Dwarf House customers flooded the restaurant’s Facebook page with more than 100 comments on Wednesday.  Some of those comments included…
