Chick-fil-A is coming to the lakeshore. And fast.

The chain restaurant has already started hiring for its new location on North Park Drive, across U.S. 131 from Nelis' Dutch Village.

The company first bought the property in May 2015. So what took them so long to open this thing? Well, according to the company's policy, they can only open so many stores per year.

In the time since Chick-fil-A acquired the old Perkins property in Holland, they've opened two locations in the Grand Rapids metro area. One is on Edgeknoll Drive off of Kalamazoo Avenue. The other is in the parking lot of the 54th Street Meijer in Wyoming.

The Holland Sentinel reports the North Park Drive location will open in February 2018.
