Restaurant to give free food at new Searcy location

Restaurant to give free food at new Searcy location

SEARCY, AR –  The Chick-fil-A® restaurant chain and its renegade Cows will “ring” in the New Year with the opening of Searcy’s first in-line location on Jan. 20 when the first 100 adults in line that morning will be awarded a free year’s supply of Chick-fil-A.

Started seven years ago as an idea for an Arizona restaurant opening, Chick-fil-A’s First 100 Celebration has become the signature event of each grand opening around the country. The chain’s loyal customers often arrive 24 hours in advance of the opening -- no matter the location or weather conditions.

A similar scene is expected at the new Chick-fil-A in Searcy where the chain will award a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A® Meals (52 certificates) to each of the first 100 adults in line, age 18 and older with identification, at the restaurant located at 3683 E. Race Ave. The line officially opens at 6 a.m., Wednesday, Jan.
