MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. — When you want a nearly-perfect chicken sandwich, you call in the pros at Chick-fil-A.
When you want to unsnarl traffic at a COVID-19 vaccine site, you call in the pros at... Chick-fil-A.
While the chain offers delicious fast-food, it has also made a name for itself by getting the food to its drive-thru customers quickly and efficiently.
When massive traffic from a software glitch plagued a COVID-19 vaccine site in South Carolina over the weekend, the city's mayor knew exactly who to call when the going got real tough.

Mayor Will Haynie of Mount Pleasant wasn't happy to see traffic at a site backed up for an hour, so he phoned Jerry Walkowiak, the local Chick-fil-A manager, knowing he could do wonders with the long lines.
Bringing his Chick-fil-A know-how with him, Walkowiak arrived on the scene and quickly reduced the hour-long traffic wait to just 15 minutes, WTVT reports.
Haynie thanked Walkowiak for his services in a tweet, saying that "when you need help, call the pros."
