FEDERAL WAY, Wash. – Police are on hand at a new Chick-fil-A restaurant in Federal Way to direct traffic.
The 6:30 a.m. opening of the location on Pacific Highway South and South 320th Street is expected to cause traffic backups Thursday.
Police will be directing traffic on 11th and 324th Street to keep cars moving.
When the first Washington state Chick-fil-A opened in Bellevue in 2015, customers decked out in shirts and hats camped out in the parking lot for hours.
The grand opening seemed to last for several weeks. The city of Bellevue had to implement a new traffic plan to accommodate the massive lines of cars traveling around the restaurant.
Eager customers at the Federal Way location also camped out Wednesday, and dozens of people made meals for charity at a campout hosted by the restaurant, according to the Federal Way Mirror.
Every time Chick-fil-A opens a new restaurant, the first 100 customers receive free food for a year.
