Dick’s Drive-In — Here’s a look at how others saw it!

We used the online tool Storify to collect reports from Seattle-area media outlets, plus some random Tweets too, about the Dick’s Drive-In opening in Edmonds Thursday. And for the record, there’s a reason why it took up to two hours to get a burger Thursday. We heard from Dick’s Marketing Director Carrie Shaw that the Edmonds location set a new single-day sales record –in just 10 hours.

“How good is that?” Shaw asked. “Hungry fans came 120 burgers short of the all-time record for most burgers sold in a single day.

“We can’t wait to see what Edmonds can do now that we’re open for a full day from 10:30 a.m. to 2:00 a.m.,” Shaw added.
