A new chicken restaurant is coming to the township.
After more than three years of planning, Sonoma Chicken Coop, a chain of California-based restaurants, will open the doors of its new Parsippany location next door to at 3159 Route 46.
Construction is in progress at the site, but the bright yellow marquee sign announcing Sonoma's specialties—grilled, rotisserie and sauteed chicken—is a clue that the opening is imminent.
Also posted prominently on the building is a sign announcing that hiring for the restaurant is underway.
A corporate spokesperson for Sonoma Chicken told Patch that every branch of the eatery is individually owned. In the case of the Par-Troy branch, it is owned by Fuddruckers, with whom it will share real estate.
"It's a separate operation," confirmed a Parsippany Fuddruckers spokesperson, "but yes, we own it."
The spokesperson said there is no specific opening date as of yet, but she said it would come either in "late August or early September."
In the meantime, those interested in pursuing employement opportunities at Sonoma Chicken are encouraged to call 973-917-4777.
