Libertyville Needs a Chick-Fil-A!

If you have ever had one, you know what all of the excitement is about.... Chick-Fil-A is coming to the Chicago area this summer!

When the news came out last month - I was initially very excited (almost as excited as I was when Krispy Kream came to Mundelein), but my excitement soon turned to frustration once I realized that all of the locations being talked about were in the Western Suburbs. Why the Western Suburbs? They got the first Sonic, Jimmy Buffet's restaurant and other high profile eateries that could have done better in Lake County. Don't get me wrong, I'll probably make the drive to Aurora for the opening, but I won't like it.

You can read more about Chick-Fil-A's move to the Chicago area in Kim Mikus's (LHS Grad) column in yesterday's Daily Herald here:

The story also features a mention of a facebook group I started - The "We Need A Chick-Fil-A in Libertyville, IL" - if you're on facebook, make sure you join! Maybe someday - if we make enough noise in Libertyville, we can add a Chick-Fil-A to our menu of outstanding choices when it comes to places to eat.
