Twenty-four hours before the doors even opened at 6 a.m. Thursday, more than 225 people began camping out on the grounds of the new Chick-Fil-A. They did so in the hopes of being chosen as one of 100 special Chick-Fil-A fans. It’s an event that has become a Chick-Fil-A tradition across the country. Beginning Wednesday at 6 a.m. anyone 18 and over had the opportunity to vie for 100 spots that would earn them a free meal each week for a year.
