Mayor chick-fil-a

Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker said he helped to promote local visits of a Chick-Fil-A food truck in hopes the restaurant chain will open a brick-and-mortar restaurant in the city.

MANSFIELD -- A Chick-fil-A food truck will be coming to Mansfield on Thursdays at various locations within the city within the next few weeks.

Mansfield Mayor Tim Theaker made the announcement Wednesday morning, saying locations are under review and will be announced once they are selected.

Chick-fil-A will make its first appearance in Mansfield at Lahm Airport during the Airport Day event Saturday.

"Chick-fil-A’s intent is to test various locations in our city over the next several months to see if there is enough business to permanently locate a facility here in Mansfield," Theaker said.

The Chick-fil-A Food Truck is 32 feet long, 11-feet-6 inches in height and is 8 feet, 6 inches wide, according to the mayor.

"There were only a handful of Chick-fil-A Food Trucks in the entire country and we are pleased they have chosen Mansfield as a test site. The truck will be offering their most crave-able items for our residents to enjoy," Theaker said.

Chick-fil-A made a similar announcement last week in Ashland.
