After years of seeing other cities and towns across Southern California welcoming Chick-Fil-A to their community, L.A can finally join in on the fun. The long wait is over. The chain known for inventing and in my opinion, perfecting the chicken sandwich will open tomorrow at 3758 S. Figueroa St., on the southeast edge of USC's campus.

For LA-based Chick-Fil-A fanatics it means not having to make what Aziz Ansari called "the pilgrimage" to Redondo Beach's Southbay Galleria. For Chick-Fil-A, this marks the 43 year-old chain's 1,500th location.

Along with deliciousness in the form of chicken sandwiches, waffle fries and sweet tea, Chick-Fil-A says it's is also bringing 50 new jobs to LA.
