Voted one of the restaurants Tri-Cities residents most want to see, the national chicken chain gave confirmation of what Chick-Fil-A's current plans are for the Columbia Basin -- and I'm sure it's not the news we were hoping to hear.

A fake social media posting on Twitter spread like wildfire that Chick-Fil-A's was coming to the Tri-Cities, but that sadly isn't true.

In a posting by the Tri-City Herald, the newspaper confirmed there are no current plans to bring the popular restaurant to the area at this time, according to a corporate statement.

It seems we'll have to just be happy with road trips to Seattle and Portland -- and did you know Moscow, Idaho has a Chick-Fil-A? Moscow is only a few hours away.

At this time (and in the near future) those seem to be the only places you can enjoy Chick-Fil-A, so it's a little heartbreaking to hear the truth but now you know.
