According to the Bangor Daily News, Chick-Fil-A, the southeastern-based fast food chicken brand will expand to Maine as they hope to open their first restaurant in Bangor by the end of 2016. The restaurant will take up a spot at the Bangor Mall and near the Chipotle restaurant in Bangor.

Chick-Fil-A is planning a major expansion in the northeast in 2016. They will attempt to open restaurants in Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Vermont. Chick-Fil-A is now America's most popular fast food chicken restaurant, surpassing Kentucky Fried Chicken last year according to data from Bloomberg Business.

Chick-Fil-A continues to operate under Christian beliefs, which means all their restaurants are still closed on Sundays across the country so that employees can enjoy time with family and attend church. The Bangor Daily News details the history and headlines involving Chick-Fil-A here.
