New Chic-Fil-A Opens in New Jersey. Four More on the Way

WATCHUNG, NJ – A new Chic-Fil-A restaurant has just opened in Watchung, New Jersey and the company says four more are on their way.  Last week, the company opened their newest location at 1662 Route 22 in Watchung and lines quickly formed once the news broke.

“Rain or shine our team members are ready to serve you! Thank you all for joining us during our grand opening weekend,” Chic-Fil-A said. “Each day is more amazing than the last! Please stop by our new store Mon-Sat every week!”

New restaurants are expected to open on the White Horse Pike in Barrington;  Route 1 in Edison;  at the Legacy Shopping Center in Linden and on Route 1 in New Brunswick.

With the new openings the company also rolled out new and returning summer items including their new Mango Passion Tea Lemonade.

Chick-fil-A is offering guests nationwide something new to sip this summer starting June 29: Mango Passion Tea Lemonade. The new beverage comes to restaurants alongside the return of an old favorite, the beloved Peach Milkshake.

Mango Passion Tea Lemonade is Chick-fil-A’s first seasonal beverage since Strawberry Passion Tea Lemonade in Summer 2019. The hand-crafted, seasonal beverage is a tropical blend of classic Chick-fil-A Lemonade and freshly-brewed Unsweetened Iced Tea, and mango syrup featuring natural mango and passionfruit flavors.

“Summer is the perfect time for people to quench their thirst with a delicious and refreshing drink like Mango Passion Tea Lemonade,” said Ben Bolling, beverages category leader at Chick-fil-A. “The beverage was well received when we tested it in Jacksonville, Fla. last fall, so we’re excited to offer it to guests around the country and give them more variety to help sweeten up a meal or midday snack this summer.”

In addition, Chick-fil-A is bringing some familiarity to summer with the return of the Peach Milkshake. A delicious treat, the Peach Milkshake combines handspun Chick-fil-A Icedream® with real peaches. This Chick-fil-A favorite is available for a limited time starting on June 29.

Mango Passion Tea Lemonade starts at $1.99 for a small and $2.19 for a large. The beverage is also available with Chick-fil-A® Diet Lemonade and Sweetened Iced Tea. The Peach Milkshake starts at $3.29 for a small and $3.79 for a large.

Both the Mango Passion Tea Lemonade and Peach Milkshake will be available at participating restaurants nationwide starting Monday, June 29 through the summer, while supplies last.
