Now that Chick-fil-A has opened in Bozeman, there seems to be a bit of a rush for folks to try it out.

The popular chain restaurant finally opened after months of talk on the Montana State University campus in the Strand Union Building last week and needless to say, it's been big news.

While Montana has its fair share of chain restaurants and stores, whenever the question is asked about what locals would like to see come to town, In-N-Out, Trader Joe's, and Chick-fil-A seem to round out the top every time.

I was scanning social media the other day and lots of folks were asking where they could park on campus to get their hands on the famous sandwiches and nuggets from the much-beloved franchise, while I'm a fan, I'm not sure I'm ready to stand in line for a chicken sandwich or risk getting a parking ticket because I didn't park in the right place.

While it's cool that Bozeman has a Chick-fil-A, one of the big questions is if they'll build another one in town that is more catered to regular folks. It's been a rumor for a year or two that not only were they going to open up a location at MSU, but they might build a second location somewhere in the city.

Depending on who you ask, they've already picked a couple of locations, although nothing has been confirmed. So for those of you who love chicken sandwiches, but don't want to deal with the headache of going to campus, there are a couple of options.

First, you can hope at some point Door Dash or Uber Eats will be available (I checked the Chick-fil-A website and it said they don't deliver in our area), or you can check out one of the great chicken sandwich options available around town. Check them out below.
