Dick’s Drive-Ins to send food truck to Everett this fall

Everett is one of five cities to be chosen, the iconic Seattle-based restaurant chain announced Wednesday.

EVERETT — Dick’s Drive-Ins announced plans Wednesday to bring the restaurant’s famous burgers and milkshakes to Everett, on a food truck.

Everett is one in five cities that will host the new mobile truck, set to debut this fall, according to a news release. The other four cities are Bellingham, Bellevue, Renton and West Seattle.

It was not immediately clear how long the food truck would stay, or exactly where it would park.

The Seattle-based restaurant chain also announced it is searching for a new location in east King County, and a location could be chosen as far north as Bothell. That city is split between King and Snohomish counties.

There is no timeline as to when the new restaurant could open.

“It depends a lot on how long it takes us to find a good piece of real estate for our new location and whether we can find it at the right price,” Dick’s Drive-Ins President Jasmine Donovan said in a release.

Dick’s Drive-Ins, established in 1954, has six locations in King County and one Snohomish County, in Edmonds.

Location suggestions can be submitted at ddir.com/Eastside.
