About a year ago we learned that research was being done in the Albany area to see if our area could get a Chick-fil-A. If you've never eaten at a Chick-fil-A you probably don't understand why I am so curious about this. If you have you know exactly why my patience is wearing thin. When can I easily enjoy a delicious chicken sandwich?

Here we are in April of 2017 and we don't seem to be any closer to having a Chick-fil-A. 

In December there was an article posted on that said that a public hearing would take place about the first Chick-fil-A in Upstate, NY (there is one in NYC) being put there.

I've been trying to find more info on this. The Times Union said in October of 2016 that one was being proposed for Halfmoon, but beyond that it seems like a dead end. 

Right now Chick-fil-A seems like Wegmans. Something we'll just have to drive to if we want it badly enough. All rumors at this point, and nothing solid. 

That being said, I think we need to get the word out that New York's Capital Region is ready for a Chick-fil-A. We've waited long enough. Bring us that chicken.
