South Carolina Chick fil-A Experimenting with Late-Night Hours
The beloved chicken chain is upping the cravings ante.
Good news for hungry University of South Carolina students! The Chick fil-A on the edge of campus—on the corner of Harden and College streets in Columbia’s Five Points district—announced that it will begin experimenting with staying open until a hard-partying 3 a.m.
According to The State, the restaurant will be expanding its hours on Friday nights into Saturday morning beginning on January 18. The pilot will reportedly continue through at least the end of January.
“We’ve gotten a lot of feedback which is pretty awesome,” Saige Cook, junior marketing director with the restaurant, told The State.
Cook revealed that if Friday nights are a success, the late-night hours could be extended to Thursday nights as well. Saturday nights will remain untouchable, however, so as not to violate Chick-Fil-A’s well-known policy of being closed on Sundays. And there’s a chance it could expand past this school year as well.

“If it’s a success we’re going to be doing it for the spring and fall semesters for sure,” Cook teased.
If it turns out to be as big of a hit as the “frenzied” USC students predict, we wouldn’t be surprised if the beloved Atlanta-based chain considered expanding its hours at other college campus locations throughout the country. Fingers crossed!
