From left, Yale Gerber, Lee Hodges, Tyler Bahr and Ry Simmons play four square Wednesday as they wait in the parking lot of Chick-fil-A in Cape Girardeau. Chick-fil-A's grand opening is today. The first 100 people in line will receive a free year of Chick-fil-A food in the form of 52 free meal coupons. People could begin lining up at 6 a.m. Wednesday, but had to stay on the premises until 6 a.m. today to be eligible for the first 100. As of 4 p.m. Wednesday, 62 people were in line. Stay up-to-date on the restaurant's opening on Melissa Miller's The Bottom Line blog at and by following @semissourianbiz on Twitter.
