More Than 100 Line Up For Free Chick-fil-A Meals

A raffle determined the first 100 customers to wait in line for a year’s worth of free Chick-fil-A meals.

The grand opening of the new Chick-fil-A store in Azusa is not until Thursday, Feb. 21, but more than 100 would-be customers arrived at the future location early Wednesday morning, hoping to snag a spot for a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A meals.

Store officials say that 165 customers from all over the San Gabriel Valley were waiting in the parking lot of the Azusa location at 900 E. Alosta Ave. early Wednesday morning.

According to the rules, only the first 100 customers will receive the prize for 52 coupons for Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwiches, Waffle Potato Fries and a medium drink. A raffle determined placements for the first 100 customers who will wait in line until the store’s grand opening Thursday at 6 a.m.

Are you or someone you know waiting in line for free Chick-fil-A meals? Tell us in the comments.

My kids and I are so excited about having a Chick-Fil-A in our area. We like their great tasting food, and not concerned about their political views. If I worried about every business owners political/religious views, I would have to stay locked up at home. As long as a business is not exploiting, abusing, supporting illegal activities, and so on, then I think a business owner(s) is entitled to his/her own views and opinions. If a business starts to strongly impose their views/opinions on me, then I will no longer be a consumer of that business. Sorry, but I don't think there are secret anti-gay messages in my chicken sandwich or fries. And what about In-in-out? Should atheist, jews or muslims avoid them because they are Christian? Or should I avoid a gay owned hair salon because the owner makes it clear that he doesn't like right wing Republicans? Really? Isn't that the great (or sometimes great) part of our constitution: freedom of speech. Which is for everyone, not a select few!

Yay, Chik-fil-A! If you dont like it, dont eat there. No need to post your political opinions - every business restaurant chain or not has one (even Wal Mart) - that's why you have freedom of choice (well sort of ha!)
