Royal Farms is really coming to its latest location on Route 88 in Brick Township. I know the signs have said  "coming soon" for a while and from the looks of it, that is very true. The question is when?

According to a Brick Shorebeat article, the reason could possibly be "a permit from the New Jersey Department of Transportation that has not yet been approved. Royal Farms is effectively surrounded by roadways under state jurisdiction – the two-state highways as well as the small service roads that run between several neighboring businesses and the nearby jug handle."



I am eager for this location to open here in Ocean County because I have never been to Royal Farms and from what I have been told their fried chicken is worth the trip alone. Yup Royal Farms is known around the country for their service and their fried chicken so let's get open so I can swing in and grab some :)

According to a recent Patch article, "Royal Farms officials are not committing to an opening date." 

A spokesperson for Royal Farms Said "We've run into a few delays beyond our control and do not have an opening date to report. Unfortunately, we do not have any further updates to share at this time."

That's basically all we have at this time, so even though there are numerous rumors seems that that's all they are at this time, rumors.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
