Default Chik-fil-A

Ok, so here's the scenario. A new Chik-fil-A is opening tomorrow on Kent Island. At 8:00 am today, there were at LEAST 30 tents of people who are camping out for the grand opening! WTF!!??

It's just chicken people!!

And not very good chicken at that. Kind of reminds me of something you might find in a school cafeteria.

At Chic-Fil-A grand openings, the first X number of people get free meals for a year. At least that how they do it around here.

PS.

The new spicy chicken sammich is the chit.

Different location but probably the same give away.

"Tomorrow, the first Chick-fil-A in the area will open in west suburban Aurora--and people plan on spending Wednesday night in the parking lot hoping to win free chicken for a year.
As Gapers Block reports, Chick-fil-A celebrates each grand opening with music, food and a big sandwich giveaway--the first hundred people in line as of 6 a.m. Thursday will win 52 vouchers, each worth a free chicken sandwich."

LoL @spending a night in a parking lot for $300 worth of food.
Especially if it's $300 worth of mediocre chicken sandwiches.

ugly
dumb

That the case for the other franchises but not fir the Chik-fil-A around here. I think there food is pretty good and the are one of the top franchises to own. I know two people who have a franchise and both seem to do very well.

I cant believe so many of you don't like it...We Love Chik-Fil-A.

On top of it, the one in Houston near us seem to always have at least one employee that is a bit slow or maybe even has some mental disability. I really commend them for giving those people an opportunity in life.

the founder was religious. he figured, even if you weren't,and you worked for him, you should be home with your family at least one day, not clogging people's arteries all the time.

cool sentiment, if nothing else.
