Parent company of Chick-fil-A closes on property in Princeton

PRINCETON — The parent company of the popular Chick-fil-A restaurant chain has acquired land along Oakvale Road in Princeton, officials said Wednesday.

The company recently closed on property located near the old Exxon station and the existing Bill Cole Hyundai on Oakvale Road, according to Mercer County Economic Development Authority Director Janet Bailey.

“They haven’t really said what they will do there,” Bailey said of the property. “I think that is up to corporate, and they partner with other businesses as well. But a stand-alone Chick-fiil-A would do very well in this area.”

In other economic development-related news, Bailey said two unidentified big box chains are still looking at property in the Princeton and Bluefield areas.

“We have shown them properties at Exit 9 and also property in the Bluefield area,” Bailey said of the two big box chains. “They really don’t act quickly. It is something they consider for a while. But we feel very positive that one will locate here.”

Bailey said the big box chains also have looked at land near Exit 14 in Mercer County.
