Get in line Chick-fil-A lovers. The first 100 adults to visit the new Chick-fil-A in Fairfax on its opening day on Thursday will receive a free Chick-fil-A meal each week for a year.
The new standalone restaurant will open at 6 a.m. at 4516 Fair Knoll Drive in Fairfax, but folks can began standing in line as early at 6 a.m. Wednesday, said Cindy Chapman, a spokesperson for the popular chain.
Because so many people have showed up 24 hours in advance of the opening, the company has had to implement a few rules to determine who gets the grub.
If more than 100 people show up 24 hours in advance, then a drawing will be held to determine the 100 winners, according to the Chick-fil-A Free 100 website. Read all the rules and conditions here.
Besides the promise of a free weekly meal, the new location brings 70 jobs to the area.
The new building is also the first Chick-fil-A building in the region that meets the standards of the U.S Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification program.
