Chick-fil-A/Boar's Head Deli opens Monday at GSW

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Georgia Southwestern State University, GSW Dining Services (Aramark) and the Sumter County Chamber of Commerce will host a ribbon cutting Monday, Aug. 11 at 10:30 a.m. for the new Chick-fil-A/Boar's Head Deli restaurant located in the GSW Student Success Center. 

Both restaurants will begin serving food immediately after the ceremony. The public is invited to this event.

A host of local representatives are on the program which will be finalized with a ceremonial first bite from GSW President Kendall Blanchard, Ph.D. The Chick-fil-A cow and GSW's mascot, Surge, will be on hand as well to welcome guests.

Renovation of what used to be the Canes Den campus eatery began in May and was recently completed. Additional patron-specific parking for as many as 15 vehicles was added during construction to accommodate for the influx in traffic.

In October 2013, students took a GSW Dining Services survey selecting restaurant chain preferences. Chick-fil-A was the overwhelming favorite, and Boar's Head Deli was second.
