Federal Way Chick-fil-A now hiring ahead of Sept. opening

Chick-fil-A is now hiring for its new Federal Way location at 32075 Pacific Highway S. in Celebration Center.

The official opening date for the Federal Way location is Sept. 14, according to a spokesperson. Details will be announced soon about a “free chicken for a year” promotion for the first 100 customers who camp outside before the grand opening.

Starting wage at the fast-food restaurant is $12 an hour for employees 18 and older. Famous for its chicken sandwiches and being closed on Sundays, the Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has seven other locations in Washington and more than 2,000 locations nationwide.

Each new grand opening in the region has caused traffic congestion and parking issues for locations in Bellevue and Tacoma. Over the past few years, Chick-fil-A has also generated national controversy – and protests by advocates of the LGBTQ community – for its affiliation with politically conservative organizations.
