WOODSTOCK - The owners of the Chick-fil-A Dwarf House in Woodstock plan to get an upgrade by opening a Truett’s Chick-fil-A at the location.

Plans to tear the existing building down and replace it with the Truett’s were heard last week at the Woodstock Planning Commission and will be reviewed by the city council March 25.

The new building is estimated to be about 300 square feet larger, at 6,900 square feet. The drive-through will be longer, with a 28-car queue, and will be moved to start at the back of the restaurant to be more “pedestrian-friendly,” said Todd Rogers, an engineer for Chick-fil-A.

Demolition is projected to begin early 2020, with five months of construction before the new facility opens.

The applicants assured the commissioners that the company plans to preserve the iconic small door that faces Ga. Highway 92. The plans for the new facility include variances to increase the allowed number of parking spaces to 93, although they plan to build only 91, and a 40-inch tall modesty panel beneath the windows.
