Chick-Fil-A Open For Business In Twin Falls
Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV) A new business opened in Twin Falls today.
Chick-fil-A celebrated its grand opening.
Richard Coley was ready with a heavy coat, tent and a smile.
Why? Because the opening of Chick-fil-A also brings a huge incentive.
"Each of them got a years' supply of Chick-fil-A meals and those meals in value all together are around 26 thousand almost 30 thousand dollars of food," says Twin Falls Chick-fil-A owner and operator, Bill Ystueta.
The goodies people receive aren't the only draw. Owner Bill Ystueta explains that Chick-fil-A also has an intense following across the nation.
Richard Coley, a Chick-fil-A enthusiast says, "This is my 92nd grand opening. Covering a span of a little over five years and 22 different states."
"I have a client who flies in the diet lemonade by a private jet from Dallas, Texas."
Many people have favorites on the menu already.
"Waffle fries, waffle fries, I would say the Chicken Club sandwich."
"I like the number 1 combo. The sandwich and fries. I love the fries the best. The waffle fries are the best."
But it isn't always about the food...Ystueta wants this to be about the community and our local economy.
Ystueta says, "We hired 75 people which automatically has an impact on the community, and then just the fact we're a meeting place and creates excitement. I know I'm friends with some of the managers here in the same parking lot who are just excited to have us here because they know it will draw more people into this are which will help their traffic which helps their business.
Helping other businesses and inspiring people in the magic valley to 'Eat More Chikin'.
The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 6:30 AM to 10PM.
It is located on Blue Lakes Blvd. N in the same parking lot as Target.
