Registration will open at 6 a.m. tomorrow for Chick-fil-A’s “First 100” overnight campout ahead of the grand opening on Thursday.

The restaurant, located at 1494 North Point Village Center, is offering selected participants 52 free chicken sandwich meals during the event. Campouts begin the day before grand opening day. Participants will be selected through a random drawing.

A valid ID  is required to participate in the event. For more information on acceptable documents to verify current residence, as well as specific rules for the campout, visit Chick-fil-A’s website.

Larry Everrett, a retired firefighter of 30 years from Fairfax County, will operate the store. Everrett also served as a first responder to the Pentagon during 9/11.

    Pretty much the current state of “Merica”. Camping out at a fast food joint, incredible.

      Although I have never spent all night in a line for merchandise or restaurant openings, I honestly don’t see the problem with people having some fun.

    Why camp out when you can go to the other store 2 miles away?

      Truly!

      The prize for each person is a free meal every week for the next year. They usually only hold these offerings during a grand opening.

    Plenty of chicken shacks in Herndon
    Why do we need another one

      Because the free market has decided it.

    • TheKingJAK

      Because this isn’t Herndon.

    With all of the construction done to expand, it still seems like a small restaurant.

    So does this mean the winning campers each get 52 sandwiches (ideally purchased over time) or that there are 52 free sandwiches to give out, with each person getting one? If it’s the latter, I’d rather just pay for the damn sandwich.

      Each individual who receives the prize is entitled to receive a free sandwich meal every week for the next year.

  • Why do you bother?

    Sorry – I’ll spend my fast food money at places whose owners don’t fund hate groups.

    • TheKingJAK

      That is certainly your prerogative, but these places are wildly popular throughout our nation. The current one mentioned in this article was packed full of people at lunch hour the other day, and this past night it was filled with campers.

      • Why do you bother?

        Yes, there are a lot of sheep out there.
