Terrace fighting hard for a Dick’s Drive-In: Edmonds, do you care?

Our friends at Lynnwood Today Friday noted an announcement by Dick’s Drive-In that the online poll on where to build the next Dick’s Drive-In will be ending Sunday, Sept. 19.

As of Friday morning, over 96,000 people had voted in the poll, Lynnwood Today said, and the north end still leads with roughly 47 percent of the vote.

“We have been humbled by the phenomenal response,” says Jim Spady, vice president of Dick’s Drive-In Restaurants and son of co-founder and namesake, Dick Spady.  ”We are excited to hear from our customers who are so passionate about Dick’s burgers and fries.”

Dick’s is also asking customers to submit videos about why they should build the restaurant in their city. Someone in Lynnwood did submit a video, but nothing so far from Edmonds. However, Mountlake Terrace is lobbying hard for a Dick’s Drive-In there. According to MLTnews.com, city officials met with Dick’s owners to go over maps and traffic studies, as well as a proposal for where to locate the restaurant (244th Street SW just east of 56th Avenue West).

  1. Thx Priya..I have 4 of them so thank goodness the other 2 chickened out! I just met the owner of Cafe Neo, they are taking Johnny’s spot on waterfront..small world have known him for 30ys, didn’t know he was the Neo owner! But he won’t last there, just like all the others that have failed, because of the parking situation..so use your connections to put a bug in the councils ears about helping them out..I mean Gyros for lunch downtown? My stomach is already growling!

  2. Michael, thank you for all the work you have been doing on this. Also, thank your daughters for putting together the video. Had Dick’s last Monday. We need one here in Edmonds.
