BOTHELL — Campers lined up outside the second Chick-fil-A to open in Snohomish County on Wednesday, hoping to get free meals for a year.
The restaurant at 220 228th St. SE in Bothell plans to open its doors Thursday. As a tradition on new openings, the company gives the first 100 guests a free meal once a week for a year.
Campers and workers at the restaurant packed 10,000 meals Wednesday to be donated to Food Lifeline, a local organization working to end hunger in the Seattle area.
This restaurant is formally named Chick-fil-A at Bothell Canyon. Crews tore down an old Denny’s diner to make way for the restaurant.
Paperwork filed last year for the project said it would be a 4,529-square-foot, single story building with 40 parking spots. The restaurant is expected to draw 700 vehicles per day.
The restaurant’s hours are 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Those interested in applying for a job at the restaurant can go to its hiring website at www.CFABothell.com.
