A tent city popped up overnight as patrons of Chick-Fil-A vied for a spot to be apart of the first 100 during the grand opening promotion receiving a free meal a week for a year.

Chick-Fil-A draws tent city for grand opening

As part of a longstanding company tradition, Chick-Fil- A began its grand opening celebration with a campout beginning Wednesday morning, as part of its “First 100” giveaway. About 130 hardy souls showed up before 6 a.m. in the Wednesday morning drizzle with camping gear, ready to spend 24 hours in Chick-Fil- A’s parking lot for a chance to win one free meal per week for an entire year. With a meal costing around $6, that’s a little over $300 worth of food.
