[quote]We are heading North! Over 115,000 people vote in our online poll. New Dick’s Drive-In will be located within a 20 mile area north of the Dick’s in Wallingford. Many thanks to EVERYONE who voted in our poll. If the new restaurant is successful to the north, we’ll build two more south and east.[/quote]
The cities included in the region voted #1 are Lynnwood, South Everett, Shoreline, Edmonds and Mountlake Terrace. Earlier this month the Mayor of Mountlake Terrace, Jerry Smith, met with Dick’s owner Dick Spady in attempt to woo them to our city.
The new Dick’s restaurant is expected to open in late 2011 or early 2012.
