Prince Frederick Chick Fil-A is being built
Prince Frederick, MD – Work is intensifying at a construction site just off the south side of Route 2/4 in Prince Frederick. The much-watched and anticipated project will bring a Chick Fil-A restaurant to Calvert County. It will be the first-such franchise in the county.
“They are really moving out there,” declared developer Frank Mazza of Curtis Investment Group of the efforts of the construction crew. After a few small setbacks, including a brief stop-work order last summer, the race is now on to get the iconic eatery built and in business before the end of the year. Company officials believe that will happen.

“We anticipate selling chicken in Calvert County in October,” Chick Fil-A Development Manager John Martinez told Martinez said he did not know when the franchisee would begin the process of accepting employment applications and hiring staff.

An October opening would mean the Prince Frederick Chick Fil-A plan will become a reality two years and one month after word first began to spread about the proposal to finally bring a location to Calvert County. The Prince Frederick location will have a drive-up window, a component that had been a sticking point in previous proposals.

The Prince Frederick Chick Fil-A will consist of a 4,795-square foot building with over 60 parking spaces. It will have two separate entrances—on Route 2/4 and Costley Way.
The Calvert location would be the Southern Maryland region’s sixth Chick Fil-A. There is one location in St. Mary’s County (California), three in Charles (La Plata, Waldorf and the St. Charles Towne Center) and a location in Southern Prince George’s County (Brandywine).
