Jacobi Opens New Location




West Knoxville’s newest Chickfil- A location is now open for business. Operator David Jacobi
awarded prizes to 100 “campers” following a 12-hour campout lasting from 6 pm-6 am. The promotion initially had over 180 participants, so a drawing was held to determine 100 campers and 10 alternates.

At 6 am, shortly before the store opened, Jacobi awarded those first 100 fans the prize of free Chick-fil-A for a year--a card good for 52 free meals of chicken sandwich, fries and beverage.

The new store, Knoxville’s 11th Chik-fil-A location, has been under construction since December at 2082 Town Center Boulevard. The restaurant will offer the fast food giant’s standard menu, anchored by its signature chicken sandwich and filled out with nuggets, wraps, salads, children’s meals and a breakfast menu.

The 4900 square foot location, which will accommodate 110 diners inside and 16 on the patio, includes an indoor two-story play area along with a gathering table suitable for birthday parties and other group events.
