The Denny's signs have come down — the restaurant on 116th Avenue Northeast closed three weeks ago — and construction on what will be one of Chick-fil-A's first three Washington chains is slated to begin there in late September.

Chick-fil-A spokesman Jerry Johnston confirmed Tuesday the Bellevue restaurant and two more in Lynnwood and Tacoma are projected to hold grand openings in March 2015. Construction for the Lynnwood and Tacoma locations is set to begin in October. According to plans submitted to the city, the Bellevue Chick-fil-A is proposed to be 3,742 gross square feet and includes a drive-through.

Chick-fil-A opens a limited number of restaurants each year, according to its website, "based on corporate goals for expansion in specifically targeted markets and other relevant business factors."
