A new Chick-fil-A opened in Marysville on May 21 serving chicken products to a number of individuals throughout the day.
The restaurant opened at 8810 36th Ave. NE, Marysville.
The national franchise is one of the largest fast food chains in the nation and is known for their chicken sandwich "which is 100 percent whole breast meat, without any fillers, hormones or additives," said John Clingen, franchise owner and operator of the new Marysville location.
Most of their products are made from scratch daily, he said. "Including salads prepared from fresh vegetables and fruit that is hand-chopped throughout the day."
Clingen said that those who want a full menu can go to chick-fil-a.com.
He said that the customer service of the restaurant will appeal to people in the Marysville area.
"I hope people will like the quick service and overall genuine hospitality that they will experience through our team members," he said.
The first couple of days for the popular restaurant saw long lines of cars in Marysville being directed by local police officers through the less essential streets so as not to cause any additional traffic.
"Opening day was great," said Clingen. "We were so excited to see the number of people who were anticipating the opening of our restaurant and it was an honor to see so many new faces from our community," he said.
Currently, because of restrictions regarding COVID-19, the restaurant is only taking drive-thru takeout orders or delivery orders and that they are implementing safety measures.
"We have implemented a number of procedures at our restaurant that include limited-contact ordering, payment and meal delivery procedures, social distancing recommendations and more," said Clingen.
They are also following CDC guidelines for restaurant operation.
"Chick-fil-A team members will wear face protection while working in the restaurant and drive-thru. Team members are also required to wear gloves and wash their hands frequently, and we have deployed outdoor hand washing stations for Team Members in the drive-thru nationwide,” said Clingen.
Clingen said he is happy to be a part of the Marysville community.
"We are eager to serve the community of Marysville and understand that convenience is a necessity during this time," he said.
He added that during these busy opening times for the restaurant and because of the pandemic that delivery options will remain available.
"To cut back on wait times, we offer mobile ordering, mobile payment and delivery options," he said.
