Hudson Valley residents may soon be able to feast on Chick-fil-A. The company is trying to open up its first real Hudson Valley restaurant.

Hudson Valley residents will soon be able to order Chick-fil-A at some rest stops across New York and likely in the Hudson Valley.

The news of the popular fast-food chain opening up near the Hudson Valley is exciting. But let's be honest, it's not that exciting because you have to be driving on the New York State Thruway to stop at one.

Well, I've got some better news!

Chick-fil-A is working with officials in the Hudson Valley to open up its first location in the Hudson Valley.

As of now, Hudson Valley residents have to leave New York State to feast on some Chick-fil-A.

According to Chick-fil-A's website, the closest stores to the Hudson Valley are located inside the Danbury Mall, the Paramaus Park Mall, in Brookfield, CT, or Ramsey, NJ.

Before the company can start building they must get approval. Officials from Yonkers are currently reviewing Chick-fil-A's application, according to the Fairfield County Business Journal.

Chick-fil-A hopes to demolish a closed bank on Central Park Avenue in Yonkers and turn it into a stand-alone store.
