The wait is over. The Lynnwood Chick-fil-A at 3026 196th St. SW. is open for business. Crowds camped overnight to be one of the first 100 people in line to receive free chicken meals for a year.

The Lynnwood location is the third restaurant the chain has opened this year in the Pacific Northwest. The others are in Bellevue and Tacoma. In anticipation of heavy traffic, owner Paul Rosser has hired off-duty police to help direct traffic. The City, Chick-fil-A and Lowe’s, have joined together to develop a proactive traffic management plan. Check out traffic information here.
