As the clock ticks down to the eventual opening of a Chick-fil-A restaurant in the Twin Ports area, Northlanders are getting chances to have some of the chain's food before a store opens in the area.

Back at the beginning of September, a Chick-fil-A food truck that tours the region made its first stop in Duluth. The truck, which is owned by the operator of a Southern Minnesota Chick-fil-A restaurant owner, brought the truck to Duluth for a day Labor Day Weekend.

Known as the Chick-fil-A Tri-State Food Truck, this touring truck visits communities around Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa, bringing with it some of the brand's popular menu items. The truck began its touring of the tri-state region at the beginning of 2023, making its first stop in the Northland just a few months ago.

That truck recently announced a return to the Twin Ports area, just in time for the busy kickoff to the holiday shopping season.

In an update on the food truck's Facebook page, the team announced they would be hitting the road Thanksgiving week with stops in Hudson, Wisconsin and Spirit Lake, Iowa before taking Wednesday and Thursday off for Thanksgiving - then making the trek north to Duluth for Black Friday.

The Chick-fil-A food truck will be parked at the Miller Hill Mall in Duluth on Black Friday - November 24, from 11 am to 6 pm. Like the last time they were in the Twin Ports area, fans of Chick-fil-A's food will be able to show up to order some food from the food truck in the parking lot, or you can order ahead via their website.
