Dick’s Drive-In announced Friday morning that the new location of their popular restaurant would be at the northwest corner of Highway 99 and 220th St Southwest, literally across the street form Mountlake Terrace! The restaurant will be built in the current Top Foods parking lot.
Dick’s ran a poll on its website asking customers where a new restaurant should be built, and the Northend won, with 46 percent of the vote. Over 115,000 people voted in the poll.
Last month Mayor Jerry Smith met with owner and founder of Dick’s Drive-In, Dick Spady, in an effort to bring the restaurant to Mountlake Terrace but apparently it was not enough.
The new restaurant will employ about 20 people and will likely open in late 2011 or early 2012.
