It will be the first time a fast-food chain has set up shop in a senior center, as Chick-fil-A becomes an innovative solution to a longstanding problem: a shuttered café inside a state-of-the-art center for older adults.

When Cobb’s wellness center opened five years ago, it broke the mold of traditional government-run senior facilities.
