Chick-Fil-A set to open in Tukwila

The grand opening of the restaurant is on Jan. 31.

A new fast food chain will open its doors to the community Jan. 31.

The 11th Chick-fil-A in Washington is located on Southcenter Parkway and will provide another option for residents and those passing through Tukwila.

In previous Chick-fil-A grand openings around the area, traffic impact has been a concern for community members.

According to Rachel Bianchi, deputy city administrator for the city of Tukwila, the city has a plan in place to combat traffic.

She said the city is working with Chick-fil-A to facilitate bringing in off-duty officers for the grand opening to keep things running smoothly.

This specific location features a double drive-thru with a queuing area for up to 34 vehicles, which Bianchi said should mitigate some of the issues associated with the increase in traffic in the area.

For the restaurant itself, Chick-fil-A will host its First 100 Celebration Jan. 30, the day before the restaurant officially opens.

During the celebration, the first 100 adult participants will have the opportunity to win a digital offer card that has a one year supply of Chick-fil-A loaded onto it, according to a press release from Chick-fil-A.

Community members interested in the First 100 celebration are asked not to arrive before 5:30 p.m. Jan. 30. The event will run for 12 hours from 6 p.m. and run until 6 a.m. Thursday.

To participate in the First 100 celebration, visit to see a complete list of eligible zip codes and rules.

The Southcenter location will feature a 5,000 square foot building with a dining room available for 120 guests. An indoor play area for children and free Wi-Fi is also available to patrons.

The restaurant is scheduled to open for business beginning at 6:30 a.m. Jan. 31.
