Chick Fil A isn't worth camping out for. eta

There's a new Chick Fil A opening up a little ways from where I work. There's already one a few miles away, one on the mall not too far from there, about 5-10 minutes from this new one and another two about 15 minutes away if you take the freeway. There's people literally camped out for the opening tomorrow. In freezing, wet weather, for a freaking fast food restaurant.


So dumb.





Eta: so one of the guys I work with has a son that is going to be working at the new one. He said they're giving out free sandwiches to the first 100 people. Not for a year, just one single free sandwich.

Is fried chicken scarce in your area or something?
What a weird thing to camp out for.

Wow that's crazy. I love their chicken and our closest is 45 mins away. I would love if we got one close but I definitely wouldn't camp out.

Are they giving away free food or something. If not, that's odd. Although I wouldn't wait for hours for free food either.

Maybe they are giving away some kind of freebie to the first customers. Still not worth it to me!

No. That's another thing. On that same road, within 2 miles, there's a KFC, a Zaxbys, and a brand new Popeye's.

So I live in buffalo we don't have one. Went on vacation to Colorado to see a friend. She talked and talked about how good they were.

It was so Disapointing. It was just bad fast food.

That's one of the places I choose not to give my business to.

When I was living in WA, they opened up a Sonic. People were waiting for hours to go there. They had to create a parking area specifically for people to sit and wait. It was crazy.

They usually give free chicken meals for a year to the first 100 customers. :)
