A welcome surprise passed in front of my eyes as I scrolled through my Facebook newsfeed. The moment we have all hoped would happen: Chick-fil-A has secured property in New Iberia and plans to open in 2020.

The new location will be built within Lagniappe Village, a well-known shopping center in New Iberia which hosts businesses including Stage, Petsmart, Rue 21, and the soon-to-come Chick-fil-A. Notice that they are posting up directly across the street from Raising Canes.

Keep up with the roadmap and construction updates by following Chick-fil-A Lagniappe Village on Facebook.
