Newport Chick-fil-A to offer 100 free meals for a year

NEWPORT, KY (FOX19) -

Newport's first Chick-fil-A restaurant will open on Thursday bringing more than 75 new jobs and the chance for 100 adults to win free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.

Chick-fil-A's "First 100" event is the cornerstone of every Chick-fil-A grand opening.

The new Newport restaurant at 95 Carothers Road will be the scene of the latest Chick-fil-A grand opening celebration. 

The first 100 adults, ages 18 and older, in line when the doors open on Thursday will win a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A meals. The meals consist of 52 coupons with each consisting of a Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, medium Waffle Potato Fries and a medium drink - a total of more than $30 thousand in free food.

The line officially opened at 6 a.m. on Wednesday, and because more than 100 people showed up, a drawing was held to select the 100 that will have to stay and camp out to secure their spot.

After the free meal cards are awarded, the restaurant will open for business immediately thereafter.

For 10 years, Chick-fil-A has hosted the parking lot parties, providing security, entertainment and, of course, plenty of Chick-fil-A to its dedicated fans who often arrive more than 24 hours in advance.

The new restaurant seats 130 with additional outdoor seating and has warm colors and wood accents and an interactive play area for children. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m., serving a full breakfast menu until 10:30 a.m.
