Now Open: Chick-fil-A, Run by Retired Fairfax County Firefighter, in North Point

After a windy campout that began at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, Chick-fil-A at 1494 North Point Village Center is now open.

The 2,800-square-foot restaurant is open from 6 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. It is closed on Sunday.

Customers participating in Chick-fil-A’s promotional “First 100” event camped overnight at the location and received 52 chicken sandwich meals.

They were then ceremoniously welcomed down a red carpet to the sound of “When The Saints Go Marching In” and the banging of pots, pans and cowbells, according to a restaurant representative.

The store is run by Larry Everett, a retired firefighter who worked for the fire departments in Fairfax County and Montgomery County, Md. for more than 30 years.

Here’s more about Everett from the company:

Chick-fil-A is a family business for the Everett family. In addition to his son, Philip, a franchise owner in Rockford, his son, Joshua, will serve as facilities director at the new restaurant where Everett’s daughter-in-law, Stevie, will work as assistant human [resources] director and granddaughter, Evangeline, will be director of playground safety and designated Cow handler at North Point Center. 

During his 30-year firefighting career, Everett was a first responder to the Pentagon during 9/11 and spent most of his career serving the local community in Fairfax County. He and his wife, Andrea, and their family are looking forward to continuing that spirit of service among their friends and family in the Reston community.

    One would think that spelling would be important in the life of a journalist.
    Read carpet? Recourses?

    • Drip

      In this instance, it looks like the chicken people misspelled these words and Reston Now, in committing yet another cardinal sin of journalism, simply cut-and-paste the press release. Not enough “recourses” to do conventional journalism?

        This can happen when one is hired based on ideology and not on qualification.

        Did that happen this time? You decide.

        • Why do you bother?

          The only ideology showing is YOURS. Better guess is hiring based on who would take minimal salary.

          • The Constitutionalist

            You’re right. The ideology of hiring based on merit. Which clearly wasn’t the case here.

        • Reston Realist

          Why do you think it’s necessary to make comments like that?

  • Family Fun

    I think these articles are great. You can play this game with your kids:

    -> find the missing or extra comma
    -> find the errors in spelling
    -> find the grammatical idiosyncrasies

      That’s my favorite game. I enjoy playing it online with friends.

      Speaking of grammatical idiosyncrasies, how about “find the spelling errors.”

    • Why do you bother?

      Errors seem to have been corrected. I hate missing out on the fun.
