VIDEO: Patrons wait for free meals for a year at Chick-fil-A opening in Okemos
The new Chick-fil-A in Okemos is officially open for business. Members of the community camped out overnight before the grand opening to receive free Chick-fil-A for a year.
“What they get is a card that’s loaded with 52 of our number one meals, which is that original Chick-fil-A sandwich, those waffle fries and a drink,” Chick-fil-A spokesperson Cindy Chapman said. “Basically it’s one a week for a year.”
Tents and blankets lined the parking lot of the fast food restaurant so people could ensure their free Chick-fil-A. Restrooms, meals, security, games and activities were provided for the valiant customers as they waited for the restaurant doors to open at 6 a.m. Thursday morning.
The new Chick-fil-A is located on Grand River Avenue right next to the Meijer in Okemos.
