A spokeswoman for Chick-fil-A tells me the first 100 customers to camp out in the parking lot for 24 hours before its new Cape Girardeau restaurant opens will receive free Chick-fil-A for a year.
The company plans to open its new location, off William Street, in late August, said Brenda Morrow, spokeswoman for Chick-fil-A.
She says its store-opening camp outs have become well known with scores of people waiting in hopes of getting a coupon book with 52 free meal coupons.
The company is aggressively expanding with plans to add 90 locations to its restaurant portfolio this year, according to its website.
