It was just three years ago when we bemoaned the lack of Chick-fil-A in Los Angeles proper. And it only took until this August to put an end to what many saw as a tragic hole in our fast-food culture, when the first Chick-Fil-A in the city of Los Angeles opened on the USC campus. Now it's been confirmed: Chick-Fil-A is going Hollywood!

Squid Ink has the vitals on the pending victuals. The location will be at "[t]he southeast corner of Sunset and Highland (6750 W. Sunset Blvd.), formerly the site of Carl's Jr. and kitty corner to Hollywood High. Groundbreaking begins next Thursday, Dec. 16, with the Chick-fil-A cows kicking off the festivities at 10 a.m."

The question remains family and worship-friendly company will let this location serve customers on Sundays. "Even in this land of sodium and Gomorrah, probably not," quips Squid Ink. Luckily the new Chick-Fil-A had their eye on Hollywood; as of yesterday South LA residents had their SOL status renewed when it comes to new fast food coming to town.
