As we in Yakima still wait and hope patiently for a Chick-fil-A restaurant to come to Yakima, there's news that there is one coming Eastern Washington and hopefully it's in a town you frequent.

Spokane.

Yeah, I know, it's Spokane. But Spokane is still in Eastern Washington so there's hope that it does so well that it will inspire them to open more locations around here in the near future. You'd think Yakima would be high on that list.

According to their location guide, Covington (near Federal Way) is still our closest location and still will be after the Spokane location is active.
