According to City of Bellevue records, Chick-Fil-A is planning to open a second location in Bellevue. It will be located at 2301 148th Avenue Northeast.

The proposed fast-food restaurant space is planned to include 136 seats. Records show that there will be no outdoor seating and no drive-through at this location.

The building that Chick-Fil-A plans to move into is occupied by the Jubilee Reach Thrift Store. The space is 10,500 square feet.

Chick-FIl-A opened their first Bellevue restaurant in 2015 at 785 116th Avenue Northeast. This location includes a drive-through, as well as indoor and outdoor seating.

The 116th fast-food eatery is currently closed as it undergoes a remodel. Plans include a redesign and extension of the existing drive-through area with stacking lanes in a dual-lane configurations, according to city permits. The location will be a drive-through only service once it reopens.

The City of Bellevue explained that Chick-Fil-A recognizes that there have been ongoing traffic congestion impacts at the restaurant. A reconfiguration of the restaurant and parking lot are underway to ease the congestion on adjacent streets.


  1. I miss the old Denny’s that used to be there. At least you could get in and eat without fighting crowds.

  2. What will happen to the Thrift store? It’s a community staple and the organization does a lot a great work with Bellevue students and families.

  3. I asked at the thrift store, they are not under the impression that they are leaving that location.

  4. This is so upsetting! Jubilee reach is a community store that assists so many people with employment, volunteer services and school programs. The last thing we need is a homophobic, chicken killing fast food restaurant in that space. I hope I can find a petition to sign!

  5. Aside from peoples, political views or whether or not you like chicken, do you know if they will be having a new location

  6. what a waste to have a drive through only location in Bellevue! So much pollution and wasted resources for a lousy chicken sandwich.

  7. I don’t think Jubilee Reach is leaving. Chik-Fil-A probably bought the abandoned building right on the corner of 148th and 24th, the former bank building.
