We were treated to a special "Eat Mor Chikin" lunch today thanks to Chick-fil-A Waterloo. Their grand opening is set for tomorrow (Mar. 3, 2016). Thank you, Chick-fil-A it was as awesome as advertised.

While eating, we found out that people were already camping out to try and be apart of the Chick-fil-A First 100.  Each is hoping to win a digital offer card loaded with a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A Meals (52 meals with each consisting of a Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, medium Waffle Potato Fries™ and a medium beverage) that will be awarded to the first 100 eligible adults - ages 18 and older with identification - in line when the doors open at 6:00 AM.

Waterloo’s First Chick-fil-A Restaurant Opening March 3

WATERLOO, Iowa (March 3, 2016) – Local franchise owner Mitch Edge will open Waterloo’s first stand-alone Chick-fil-A restaurant on March 3, bringing 120 new jobs, a chance for 100 adults to win free Chick-fil-A meals for a year and the opportunity for the local community to donate books to Covenant Medical Center.

As part of the celebration of the new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening, the Chick-fil-A’s two locations in Cedar Rapids will give away Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuits to guests on Tuesday, March 1, between 6:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. No purchase is required and it is limited to one per customer.

The Waterloo grand opening festivities will continue the following day when a family-friendly overnight party is expected to pop up in the parking lot of the new restaurant at 1331 Flammang Drive 24 hours before the grand opening as guests try to be one of the first 100 adults through the door to win a year of free Chick-fil-A meals. This community event is open to guests residing in specific zip codes surrounding the restaurant. A complete listing of eligible zip codes and rules can be found on Chick-fil-A’s website.

“My team members and I can’t wait to welcome our guests,” said Edge. “We’re not just in the chicken business —we’re in the people business. Our goal is to provide a remarkable experience for every customer, every time, by serving food our guests can truly feel good about eating, providing sincere hospitality and being a good neighbor in the Waterloo community.”
