Dick’s Drive-In to open Federal Way location July 27

The grand opening begins at 10 a.m. Thursday, July 27 at South 320th Street and Pacific Highway.

The grand opening of the Federal Way Dick’s Drive-In is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday, July 27, according to the company.

Opening weekend celebrations will continue July 27-29. The Federal Way site, 32048 Pacific Highway S., is the ninth Dick’s Drive-In location.

The grand opening will include a speech from Jasmine Donovan, president of Dick’s; a ribbon-cutting ceremony and opportunities to purchase exclusive grand opening merch — along with burgers, fries and shakes galore.

More details will be announced in the coming weeks, according to Dick’s.

Dick’s opened in 2018 in Kent at 24220 Pacific Highway S., just south of Lowe’s hardware store. That location is about 6 miles from the new Federal Way site.

Dick Spady opened the first Dick’s Drive-In in 1954 in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle along Northeast 45th Street. Dick Spady died in 2016 at the age of 92, but the Spady family still runs the business.
