The newest Chick-Fil-A opens in Lake Worth on April 12 at 6275 Lantana Road, one of 92 the company will open in 2012.
To kick off the new location, the chain will sponsor its "First 100" campaign, for which the first 100 people in line score a year's worth of free Chick-Fil-A in the form of 52 gift certificates.
The rules are a bit confusing, perhaps because I haven't considered that Chick-Fil-A inspires such devotion that people camp out in the parking lot 24 hours ahead. From the release: "The line officially opens at 6 a.m., Wednesday, April 11, with the free meal cards being awarded Thursday, April 12, sometime between 6 a.m. and 6:10 a.m. The restaurant will open for business immediately thereafter. If there are more than 100 people by 6 a.m. on Wednesday, April 11, all 100 spots will be determined by raffle." Sorry, kids. You must be 18 to claim the prize.
Chick-Fil-A has hit the news quite a bit lately, with the debut of its first food truck allegedly this week, the announcement of which resulted in another heated debate over Chick-Fil-A's financialcontributions to antigay groups.
The back and forth led to an outing of this video, set to the tune of Wilson Philips' "Hold On" with some choice lyrics. "We just want a little meat without your Bible."
