This Southern staple is almost open!

Ground broke back in April of this year for the area's first Chick-Fil-A, and WILX reports that they wait is almost over.

Those looking to taste Chick-Fil-A's delicious offerings will only have to wait until October. Before then though, Chick-Fil-A is looking to hire about 100 employees; some full time, some part time, and everyone's guaranteed Sunday's off (because Chick-Fil-A is closed on Sunday)!

If you'd like to apply for a position, you can go directly to the store at 5617 W. Saginaw Highway to fill out an application. Application times are  9 am to noon, or 1 - 5 pm Monday through Friday. You can also apply online: www.cfalansingcareers.com.

If you're excited for Chick-Fil-A in Mid-Michigan, you'll be happy to know that the company plans on opening a second location over in Okemos sometime next year. Get more info HERE.
