For Chick-fil-A fans, the wait is nearly over.

The chain has declared Nov. 29 the opening date for its restaurant at 1753 Walden Ave. in Cheektowaga.

This will be Chick-fil-A’s first location in the Buffalo Niagara region. Seemingly everything about its local debut – from exactly where the restaurant would be built, to when it would open for business – has been closely watched.

The restaurant will be owned and operated by Cassandra Sheedy and will employ about 120 full- and part-time employees, according to Chick-fil-A. The hours will be 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Chick-fil-a said Sheedy grew up on a cattle farm in the region and spent 10 years in the pharmaceutical business.
