Chick-fil-A Opens at Traffic Circle

Local franchise owner Kristie Bergstrom has opened Metro LA’s newest Chick-fil-A restaurant at the Traffic Circle on Oct. 12, bringing 110 new jobs.

The grand opening events at the restaurant, located at 4401 E. Pacific Coastal Hwy. were on Wednesday, Oct. 11 with 100 dedicated fans who walked through the doors after a 24-hour campout in the parking lot to win free Chick-fil-A for a year. Fans enjoyed warm weather throughout the day while eating Chick-fil-A and playing games.

Around 6 a.m. on Thursday, the Cow led campers through the store Conga-style as team members cheered and clattered pots and pans in celebration of their arrival. They then met the operator, received their prize, and proceeded through the store.

A tradition going back 14 years ago to Oct. 9, 2003 in Arizona, Chick-fil-A’s First 100 celebration has given away more than $31 million through 2016 and continues to be the chain’s signature grand opening event. Rain, snow and extreme temperatures below zero or above 100 do not deter Chick-fil-A fans who arrive with tents, chairs, TVs and computers.
