Burbank Mayor Emily Gabel-Luddy presented franchise owner Kenny Schopp with a City certificate and welcomed the new business to Burbank. The Mayor was joined by fellow City Councilmembers Jess Talamantes and Bob Frutos.

Following the official ribbon cutting, the officials took a bite of a chicken sandwich as part of an ongoing Chick-fil-A tradition.

The store had opened at 6:00 a.m. for the breakfast crowd and for the winners from the overnight opening party. The store was crowded with lines reaching 30 deep most of the day.

The Burbank store does not have regular drive-up window service but guests can order online with the Chick-fil-A app and park in designated spots and have the pre-ordered meal delivered to your car.

The Burbank location will employ more than 100 full- and part-time team members, who will have benefits including scholarships, flexible schedules and Sundays off to spend time with family and friends.
