CHICK-FIL-A RIBBON CUTTING
Welcome to town, Chick-Fil-A! Ahead of the April 1 grand opening, franchise owner/operator Brandon Jones was thrilled to cut the ceremonial ribbon Tuesday alongside Hazlet Mayor Tara Clark. He was surrounded by his family and colleagues and representatives of the Hazlet Business Owners Association
Establishing the brand new Hazlet franchise on Route 35 North, even despite the pandemic, is a longtime "dream come true" for Jones, a Holmdel resident who came from the healthcare field.
The Holmdel Boy Scouts led a flag raising ceremony. It was important to owner Brandon Jones, the father of former Scouts, to include this patriotic event at his new restaurant. Hazlet Girls Scouts were also on hand. Over 140 people are now employed at Chick-fil-A of Hazlet, many of them teens and college students.
For now, it will be mobile pick up and drive-thru only. With the potential for over 100 cars in queue, a traffic pattern has been set up to lessen knots. There will be helpers onsite to help direct motorists.\
It was such a beautiful day for Hazlet's first-ever Bike with a Bunny on Saturday, March 27.
With Middle Road cleared of traffic, kids had the rare freedom to ride bikes all the way from Airport Plaza to a musical finish at Veterans Park.
A round of applause for the Recreation Advisory Committee for thinking up this creative idea and seeing it through! Police, first aid and fire helped keep the event safe. The kids were accompanied by their parents and the Hazlet Running Club. The Perna Dance Center performers and Raritan High School Marching Band made it very celebratory! Raritan High School volunteers helped make it go smoothly.
All the bikers and little spectators got a little plastic egg to open. Inside was a stuffed animal to attach to their bike. Thank you to Mr. & Mrs Bunny for coming to Hazlet and spreading spring joy.
