I know that title is a little weird, but it's true. Royal Farms is coming to Brick.

Covid-19 and other unforeseen issues were the majority of the delays to Royal Farms. There have been some major updates on the Royal Farms with a gas station.

I lived in Maryland and worked on a radio station in Maryland and Royal Farms is their "big" convenience store. Wawa and Royal Farms. QuickChek is so popular here but if you go to Maryland, they've never heard of it.

This Royal Farms will be the first at the Jersey Shore. I will tell you this, personally, they have the best-fried chicken. If you've never tried it, you will and I think you'll agree with me. I know it's incredibly crazy to think that a convenience store has "good" fried chicken.

Royal Farms is basically just like a Wawa and QuickCheck, a full convenience store with gas pumps. They make sandwiches, have food, and everything you'd find at these two very popular New Jersey stores, but their fried chicken is what makes them pretty popular.

Royal Farms was approved by Brick's Zoning Board of Adjustment nearly 2 years ago in 2018.

Wawa is everywhere in Brick, gas stations, and other convenience stores, will it do well there here?  It might be something that you'll be curious to check out. I'm not even kidding, Wawa is on every corner here in New Jersey, Royal Farms is on every corner in Maryland.

These pictures show that it is finally being built, gas stations are in the back of the store (it looks like they're in the back), and they're hiring. From the Royal Farms store locater on their website, the Brick store will be opening soon. I'm hearing rumors and I'm crossing my fingers for the opening date earlier than later. It could be around Memorial Day, we'll have to wait and see. The address of the Royal Farms coming soon is 900 Rte. 70 in Brick. Did you hear any updates on the opening of Royal Farms, am I hearing right? Email me, sue.moll@townsquaremedia.com.
