chcikChick-fil-A has confirmed that construction for its new restaurant in Lynnwood will begin in October 2014 with a projected grand opening in March 2015.

The restaurant, located at 3026 196th St. SW., will be one of three Chick-fil-A restaurants in the Puget Sound market.  Construction is scheduled to begin this fall on locations in Bellevue and Tacoma. These two Chick-fil-A restaurants will also have a projected opening date of March 2015.

The three Chick-fil-A restaurants will be the first to open in the state of Washington.

Chick-fil-A, a national fast food chicken restaurant, operates more than 1,800 restaurants in 39 states and Washington, D.C.and is the largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the nation, based on domestic annual sales.

Two years ago, the company has become embroiled in the same sex marriage controversy when President and Chief Operating Officer Dan T. Cathy made public statements supporting traditional marriage and opposing same sex marriage. The company distanced itself from Cathy’s statements and later issued a press release stating that “Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.”

  1. Tried Chick-fil-a in Lynnwood for the first time. It was certainly crowed, but I was very disappointed. The waiters were friendly but there was a lot of confusion for them for where to deliver the orders. There is one line to order and no area or line to pickup. No numbers or names are called out until the waiter wanders around the room a couple of times. I got a battered sandwich. The only good thing was the bun. The chicken tasted bitter and I can’t decide if that was from the limp pickles or if they put vinegar in the mix, or if the oil was rancid. I suppose if you order “spicy” you may not notice (?) The chicken was obviously pounded down to where it was thinner than the batter. I wondered if there is any more than a pea’s worth in the nuggets. And would the un-battered chicken sandwich also be a whole lot skinnier than the picture and taste bad. Right now, the after taste in my mouth tells me not to bother going back to try a different selection.
