BIZNOTE FOLLOWUP: Checking in on West Seattle Ezell’s

(WSB photo, last month)

Three and a half weeks have passed since the “sneak peek” day at the future Ezell’s Famous Chicken location in Morgan Junction, but it still hasn’t opened. “Late January” was the likely timeframe mentioned then, so since that’s arrived, we asked the company for a status. Reply: “At this point, our timeline has shifted and early-mid February is our new target.” So in case you were wondering too, now you know. We first reported a year ago that the regional fried-chicken chain was headed this way.

P.S. As listed on our West Seattle Jobs Offered page, they’re still hiring.

    Walked by the new Gyro place on Alki this afternoon-nobody eating but also noticed the paper covering the windows of the empty space next door was off.  It was empty and no sign of anything happening(or anyone working on it).

    Um… I see biscuits all up in them shelves. If they got hot biscuits, how come they’re not open? Kidding of course. I can’t WAIT for Ezell’s to open so close to my house!

    Will they be adding more prominent signage on the outside of the building facing the street? (Are there restrictions on this?) I go by there frequently and it’s sorta hard to tell that the Ezell’s is even in there at first glance. I think there is a graphic on the window but it doesn’t pop like a lit sign would at the top of the building. Just a suggestion if they want to drive more traffic in the store. Maybe this will happen with the full opening.

    Thank you!  I just wrote up an email to ask you if you had heard anything but thought I should probably search the blog before hitting send.  Of course you already reported on it!  I didn’t see the post in my original Google search results.  Thanks for being awesome!  

Sorry, comment time is over.
