“I would like to find a stew that will give me heartburn immediately,
instead of at three o’clock in the morning.” — John Barrymore

OPENING AT THE SITE OF THE FORMER Black-eyed Pea in Lakewood is the 66th stand-alone Chick-fil-A store slated to open this year. Nationally, there are, at this writing more than 1523 stores in 38 states. This will be the 920th stand-alone store. This will be the first stand-alone store in Lakewood. In addition, there are 336 mall stores (including Southwest Plaza), and 214 license locations (universities, colleges, airports, etc.). That’s a growth trend to scare some financial planner but not the folks at Chick-fil-A.
