MEBANE, N.C. — Mebane's first Chick-Fil-A opened Thursday, August 1, at 1311 Mebane Oaks Road. The first 100 guests were give a card for a year's worth of meals – good for one a week.

Alamance County has three other Chick-fil-A locations on Huffman Mill Road in Burlington, University Drive in Burlington and at Elon University.

As Triad Business Journal first reported in July 2018, Mark Tiller, a development partner with Atlanta-based Hendon Properties, asked the council to rezone a tract on Mebane Oaks Road next to a Wendy's for a new restaurant – a request the council approved.

Cy Stober, development director with Mebane, told TBJ at the time that the property was owned by Greg Spears, but that Tiller had options on the vacant land.
