This has been a crazy long wait for a convenience store opening, four years and counting to be exact.

That being said, Royal Farms is a pretty good in-and-out store; good coffee, decent sandwiches, gas, and of course its famous fried chicken.

So, worth the wait?

I actually remember the first time I had Royal Farms Fried chicken, I was working on a high voltage team (yes, in a past life I used to climb power poles and repair transformers) in Pennsylvania.

We were working an overnight job and rolled back to the shop at 5 am but before getting back my buddy decided we needed early morning fried chicken.

It was amazing!

So needless to say, when Royal Farms announced they were opening a location near the Jersey Shore back in 2018, it was exciting.

Fast forward four years and the building still remains closed.

Over the weekend, however, there were some updates that might hint at a grand opening in the near future.
