BANGOR (BDN/WGME) -- Maine’s first Chick-fil-A opened early Thursday morning, welcoming the first guests to the new Bangor location.

The new location, under construction for the past six months, offers the same selection of breakfast and lunch items that has made the fried chicken sandwich chain a household name in the southern part of the U.S.

Over the past few years, the chain has seen a rapid expansion, with franchises now operating in 46 out of 50 states. The Stillwater Avenue site, owned and operated by Bangor resident Todd Schultz, is just the third location in northern New England (there are two in Nashua, New Hampshire).

Chick-fil-A’s signature item is its chicken sandwich, which consists of fresh fried chicken, pickles and Chick-fil-A sauce on a bun. There are also chicken strips and nuggets, chicken wraps, an array of breakfast items, waffle fries and handmade milkshakes.

The Bangor Chick-fil-A is located at 605 Stillwater Avenue.
