Participants for the Chick-fil-A "First 100" have registered and are getting settled into their tents this morning.
So far there are 42 people camping out for 24 hours to win free Chick-fil-A for a year. A company spokeswoman said they will continue to allow people to register and camp out throughout the day until they reach 100.
Between 11 am. and 1 p.m. today people can bring 5 or more cans to the new store and receive a free chicken sandwich. Donations will go to the Southeast Missouri Food Bank. From 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. donations can be made also and those participants will receive a card for a free chicken sandwich.
Chick-fil-A, at 3333 Gordonville Road, will officially open Thursday at 6 a.m.
