SAVANNAH, Ga. (June 6, 2022) – A new Chick-fil-A® restaurant will begin serving the Savannah community on Thursday, June 9, 2022. Chick-fil-A, Inc. has selected Erik Amick as the independent franchised Owner/Operator of Chick-fil-A Savannah Quarters.
Located at 2021 Pooler Pkwy, at the intersection of Pooler Parkway and Blue Moon Crossing, Chick-fil-A Savannah Quarters will be open for dine-in, drive-thru and carry-out from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

The Savannah Quarters restaurant joins 15 other Chick-fil-A restaurants serving the wider Savannah market.
Locally Owned and Operated
As full-time, hands-on leaders in their restaurants and communities, Chick-fil-A Owner/Operators proudly reside in the communities in which they serve.
At the Chick-fil-A Savannah Quarters restaurant, Amick will be responsible for all day-to-day activities of the business, including employing approximately 100 full- and part-time Team Members, serving guests and cultivating relationships with local organizations and businesses.
Amick first learned about Chick-fil-A while working as a camp counselor, where he had the opportunity to meet Truett Cathy. Amick was inspired by Cathy’s dedication to philanthropy and the way it shaped him as a business leader. He has been an Operator at Chick-fil-A for the past 12 years and appreciates the opportunity to positively impact the communities where he works and lives.
“We want the restaurant to be a place of rest and restoration for the community,” said Amick. “We want our Team Members to have a place where they are cared for, mentored and given the resources to meet their goals and aspirations.”
Caring for the Savannah Community
In honor of the opening, Chick-fil-A, Inc. will donate $25,000 to Feeding America on behalf of the new restaurant. These funds will be distributed to partners in the greater Savannah area to aid in the fight against hunger.
In addition to the Feeding America donation, Chick-fil-A Savannah Quarters is recognizing 100 local heroes making an impact in the Savannah area by providing them with free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.
Team Member Investment
Chick-fil-A Operators are committed to hiring, developing and retaining top talent and providing a positive work environment for people of all ages and backgrounds. Team Members have opportunities for flexible work hours and leadership growth, competitive pay and benefits, hands-on training and mentoring and the chance to apply for scholarships to support their continuing education.
Delicious Food; Outstanding Customer Service
Chick-fil-A is known for serving customers great-tasting food made with high-quality ingredients, including the original Chick-fil-A® Chicken Sandwich. Made with a real, whole, boneless breast of chicken with no added fillers, the breaded chicken is pressure cooked in fully-refined peanut oil. Chick-fil-A was one of the first in the industry to eliminate chicken raised with antibiotics to ensure guests have an option for high-quality food on the go.
To complement the great-tasting chicken, fresh produce is delivered to Chick-fil-A restaurants up to six times a week for the best quality and flavor. The fresh ingredients are raised and grown by farmers who share the company's elevated quality and safety standards, so guests feel good about their meal.
