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.

  8. What the heck are they putting in those chicken sandwiches?

  9. Wow, why the nasty messages? I think 2 locations will help keep the crowd down a bit at the 116th store, therefore the traffic won’t always be so snarled. That’s exactly why I haven’t been there in 3 or 4 years. Once I left an appointment on 116th and saw only 4 or 5 cars in line. I immediately got in line for that great sandwich, shake, and fries. 😂😂😂 I wasn’t even that hungry, but I thought “Damn!! NO LINE!” Oh man it made the sandwich that much more gratifying. It was great 😋
