Snohomish County Executive Aaron Reardon is urging local residents to vote for the county to get a Dick’s Drive-In.
As we reported Monday, the legendary burger joint is holding a poll to decide where to put its next location. One option is “north,” which includes Lynnwood, Shoreline, Mountlake Terrace, Edmonds and south Everett.
“The fact is, we need a Dick’s Drive-In in Snohomish County,” Reardon said. “I only eat at one fast-food restaurant, and Dick’s Drive-In is it. Snohomish County residents know good food when they eat it, and that’s why we’re the right location.
“On a more serious note, Dick’s Drive-In is the type of corporate partner we like to see,” Reardon said. “They’ve always paid their employees well while offering good benefits. They donate to charity and award college scholarships. We need more Dick’s Drive-Ins.”
So far the voting has see-sawed between “north” and “south.” To vote in the online poll, go to www.dicksdrivein.com.
