BOCA RATON, FL ( (Source: Chick-Fil-A Advisory Verbatim) — Chick-fil-A West Boca, located near Mission Bay, is slated to open for business on Dec. 3. Chick-fil-A, Inc. has selected Paul Kiedis as the franchise owner of the newest Chick-fil-A restaurant in Boca Raton. Kiedis will oversee day-to-day activities of the business, employing approximately 80 full- and part-time Team Members, cultivating relationships with local organizations and neighboring businesses and serving Guests. Chick-fil-A West Boca is located at 9536 Glades Road and will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

At Chick-fil-A, safe service is our first priority. As states begin to ease restrictions on the closure of local businesses, new Chick-fil-A restaurants will take additional time to review operations and ensure the necessary precautions are in place to protect Guests and Team Members before opening their dining rooms. In the meantime, Chick-fil-A West Boca will open as a drive-thru only. Guests can take advantage of contactless ordering and payment through our mobile app.

In place of the traditional Chick-fil-A First 100 Grand Opening celebration, Chick-fil-A West Boca will be providing free Chick-fil-A meals for a year to 100 local heroes making an impact in Boca Raton. To learn more about Chick-fil-A’s response to the coronavirus, please visit

            Additionally, the Chick-fil-A Foundation has partnered with Feeding America to donate $25,000 to support local communities for every new restaurant opening. To aid in the fight against hunger, this donation will go towards organizations in Boca Raton that are doing good work to care for others.

Locally Owned and Operated

Chick-fil-A West Boca is locally owned and operated by Paul Kiedis, whose first memory of the brand was on family road trips growing up. As one of six kids, it was rare to eat out as a family, but Kiedis remembers stopping to get Chick-fil-A on long drives as a huge treat. 

Kiedis started his career as a Team Member at Chick-fil-A Palm Beach Lakes Blvd., in West Palm Beach, FL. In only a few short years, he worked to become a General Manager, while also marrying his wife Sarah, earning his degree from Florida Atlantic University and managing a property maintenance business. Upon the arrival of his first daughter, Kiedis moved to Biloxi, MS, to serve as an Interim Manager at Chick-fil-A Edgewater Mall. In March 2011, he moved back to Florida to become the Operator at Chick-fil-A Treasure Coast Square in Jensen Beach, FL. After serving four years at Chick-fil-A Treasure Coast Square, Kiedis had the opportunity to become the Operator at Chick-fil-A Town Center at Boca Mall, for over five years.

Kiedis and his wife have four children and value spending quality time with their family. Kiedis is also very active and enjoys running, biking and playing games outside with his children. Kiedis is very passionate about the Boca Raton community, and is involved with several local organizations.

 “My wife and I have enjoyed being a part of the Boca community for over five years, and we can’t wait to serve our neighbors through this new restaurant,” said Kiedis. “We are overjoyed to serve and partner with the community through the opening of Chick-fil-A West Boca. We look forward to making a positive impact in the lives of our Team Members and Guests as we bring the Chick-fil-A experience to West Boca.”
