LYNNWOOD — A new Chick-fil-A is set to open Thursday at the corner of Highway 99 and 196th Street SW in Lynnwood, and drivers can expect traffic.
Locally, the opening of a Chick-fil-A has created “significant traffic impacts.” In Marysville, for example, cars queued overnight anticipating the 6:30 a.m. opening of a new restaurant in 2020. Cars formed a long line, and the city scheduled police officers to help guide traffic for three days.
The Lynnwood opening will bring about 115 jobs to the city, according to the franchise’s press release. Tucked into the corner of the Lynnwood Center shopping lot, the new site is just 2 miles west of another Lynnwood Chick-fil-A on 196th Street SW.
Josiah Ober, the franchise owner and operator, grew up in Oregon, but has lived in Lynnwood with his wife since 2020.
“As a Pacific Northwest native, it means the world to me to be given the opportunity to grow the Chick-fil-A brand and share our signature hospitality with Lynnwood,” Ober said in a statement.
