EMERSON, Ga. -- The very first Chick-fil-A in Emerson will open its doors on Thursday, Jan. 22.
As always, Chick-fil-A will hold its popular First 100 celebration to mark the grand opening. The first 100 adults in line will be awarded digital offer cards loaded with a year's supply of free Chick-fil-A meals. The line will officially open Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 6 a.m.; if more than 100 people are already waiting, a drawing will determine who wins the offer cards.
The Atlanta-based restaurant chain has given away nearly $24 million in free food since launching the First 100 program 11 years ago.
