Several new Chick-Fil-A's are up and running in the Capital Region, and now another new location is being proposed.

After the Capital Region's long wait for Chick-Fil-A to finally open in the area ended earlier this year, the new restaurants just keep on coming! A 6th Capital Region eatery is now in the works!

When the Clifton Park and North Greenbush Chick-Fil-A's opened a few months ago, it ended years of speculation and rumors about the restaurant opening locations outside of the Albany airport. In addition to the location that opened at the New Baltimore rest area on the Thruway and a proposed Colonie location on Troy-Schenectady Road, the Times Union is reporting the chicken specialists are now planning a 6th area restaurant.

According to the Times Union report, Chick-Fil-A is proposing a new restaurant located at 944 Central Avenue in Albany.  Construction on the new location could start as soon as April of next year and would take about 6 months to complete.

Based on the lines I am always seeing at the Clifton Park location, the Capital Region can certainly support the additional restaurants being planned, if not more in the future.

Based on those lines, the food is pretty good at Chick-Fil-A. But how do their chicken sandwiches stack up against these local favorites?

The 9 Best Fried Chicken Sandwiches in the Capital Region, Ranked!

Ever since Chic-Fil-A added two more restaurants in the Capital Region a few weeks back, there's been a lot of "clucking" in our area about who has the "best-tasting" chicken sandwich.

Recently, we posted the question on our various social media platforms, and the results were pretty interesting.

For the purpose of our survey, we didn't care if it was made at a local mom-and-pop style pub, tavern, or restaurant or if it was made by a multi-billion dollar national chain.

If Capital Region residents knew of a place that builds a delicious, golden-fried chicken sandwich, we wanted to hear about it.
