Chick-fil-a Opens Murrells Inlet Store

ATLANTA | Tuesday, December 06, 2005

Chick-fil-A will open its 10th Horry County location Thursday at Woodside Village, 4400 U.S. 17, Murrells Inlet.

The nearly 5,000-square-foot restaurant is the largest of Chick-fil-A's restaurant models and one of eight that size in the chain. It will employ about 60 people.

Chick-fil-A will hold its traditional grand opening camp-out at the restaurant Wednesday night. Overnight camping has become standard at grand openings since the company began offering free meals for a year to the first 100 people in line when a new restaurant opens.

The Murrells Inlet location officially opens at 6:30 a.m. Thursday.

Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A has 1,242 restaurants nationwide.

WORKPLACE 7 more employers rated family-friendly Seven more organizations and businesses recently joined the Employee Certified Family Friendly Business Initiative, a program that was begun five years ago by The Community Coalition and the Coastal Organization of Human Resources.

The initiative aims to help people juggle work and family life while urging employers to be receptive to employees' needs. Some of the criteria businesses must meet for certification include flexible work schedules, health care, career advancement and time off for family needs. Businesses receive the family-friendly designation based on surveys filled out by their employees.

The businesses added are Atlanta Bread Co., Colonial Mall-Myrtle Beach, Costco Wholesale, Cooper Mechanical Services, Century 21 Broadhurst & Associates, Georgetown County Water & Sewer District and United Way of Horry County.
