That’s been a fast first year for Truett’s Chick-fil-A on Shorter Avenue, which was built on the site of the former Dwarf House. It opened the morning of Dec. 13, 2018, and hasn’t slowed down since. The Riverside Parkway “container” location — which offered much of Chick-fil-A’s menu during the construction period — also remains open as does the location at Mount Berry Mall.
Truett’s is celebrating next week with promotions on most days. Tuesday might be the most interesting — the 20th vehicle in the drive-through line gets their order for free. For more, please click Facebook.
