Chick-fil-A at Santee Hosts 6th Anniversary Party on Feb. 28

June 17, 2024 – Our town took a magical trip down memory lane today. The Model T Ford Club of America rolled into town for their 2024 National Tour. 

Dozens of these magnificent Model T’s lined our streets. It felt like stepping back in time.

The visitors took a stroll through our town’s rich history, from the old Lakeside Inn, the Auto Speedway route, made famous by racing legend Barney Oldfield, to our charming historic buildings and homes.

The Lakeside Historical Society opened their doors, welcoming everyone to explore the chapel, museum, Gift Shop, and the Speedway monument. It was a little slice of the past brought back to life.

Their visit was short, but the memories will last a lifetime. A huge thank you to the Model T Ford Club of America for stopping by and making the day in our hometown so special.

The Santee Chick-fil-A restaurant, 9418 Mission Gorge Road, Santee, will celebrate six years of serving guests with an anniversary party in the restaurant on Thursday, Feb. 28.  The 110-seat restaurant opened on February 28, 2013.

In honor of the celebration, from 10:30 a.m. until 10 p.m., every guest will receive one free order of Chick-fil-A Nuggets (6-count) with the purchase of any entrée when the Chick-fil-A One App is scanned at checkout. Guests are encouraged to download the app before they arrive. The giveaway is limited to one per person. Starting at 6 p.m., celebratory birthday cake will be available to every guest, along with balloons and photo opportunities with the Chick-fil-A cow.

“One of our goals at Chick-fil-A Santee is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with,” said Kyle Steck, franchise operator of Chick-fil-A Santee. “We want to invite all of our guests to join us in our birthday celebration while enjoying some of our delicious food.
