Oxford residents are once again able to enjoy crispy Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and nuggets — at least until the end of the school year.
On Feb. 1, Oxford welcomed a pop-up Chick-Fil-A location at 32 W. Walnut Street, a block away from Buffalo Wild Wings. As a pop-up, the store will only remain in town until the end of the spring semester.
The location is open 11:30 a.m. through 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday and does not have an in-house kitchen, but caters its food through the Chick Fil-A in Colerain.
Marc Osbourne, owner of the Colerain location and a 2005 Miami graduate, decided to open a pop-up store in his alma mater’s small college town due to the large student population.
The pop-up location has a limited menu, but still includes items such as the Chick Fil-A Chicken Sandwich and many of their well-known sauces, said Tim Lagoy, director of operations for the Oxford location.
The location’s Marketing and Hiring Director, Andrea Emory, said that she and her team spent the past weekend handing out over 300 free chicken sandwiches to students and residents in the Oxford area.
Emory reached out to various organizations on campus via email, including Greek life, Young life and Cru, to advertise the new shop. She also plans to spread physical flyers around campus advertising the pop-up shop.
The pop-up store is looking for students to hire at a starting pay of $10.50 per hour. All applications can be submitted at www.cfacoleraincareers.com.
