Chick-fil-A helps direct gridlocked traffic at SC drive-thru vaccine site

Mayor Will Haynie said he was notified on Jan. 22 that traffic was backed up for an hour at the COVID-19 vaccination site at Seacoast Church. He called Chick-fil-A Manager Jerry Walkowiak for help, knowing the company had a great reputation for mastering the art of drive-thru.

Haynie said he already had the manager’s number from a friend who also worked for the restaurant.

“I called him [Walkowiak] on my way over and he actually got there before I did,” Haynie told FOX Television Stations on Monday. “He was standing there. He was moving people along.”
