Get ready, New York City: Chick-fil-A is finally coming your way, and they bring tidings of free chicken!New York City’s first-ever Chick-fil-A is opening this Saturday October 3, and they are giving away a year’s worth of free chicken to 100 of their earliest customers.
Can we just say how clucking awesome that is? If you’re one of the first 300 people who show up (or let’s face it — camp out in front of) the brand-new Chick-fil-A on 37th Street and 6th Avenue, you’ll be entered into a lottery with a 33 percent chance of scoring gratis chicken.
The “First 100” promotion has already been used as a marketing tool at other Chick-fil-A grand opening events, but given the city’s dense population, they’re making chicken fans work a little bit harder for free food.
The restaurant, according to Fox News, is recommending that people start camping out on Friday night October 2 at 6 p.m., with doors set to open at 6 a.m. on Saturday. Chick-fil-A promises to “provide you everything you need from food, shelter, and entertainment.” Only New York City residents and full-time students are eligible to snag a place in line.
