Camping out for chicken

October 13, 2004

Thomasville - The first 100 customers at the Thomasville Chick-fil-a will get free food for an entire year.

Tim Louderback says, "I've been here since six this morning. My entire family loves Chick-fil-a."

For the Thomasville grand opening, Chick-fil-a is giving away food for one year to the first 100 customers that enter the restaurant tomorrow morning at six.

"It's one number one combo meal a week for 52 weeks," says Owner Mike Zolt. He expects more than 100 people to camp out. "It doesn't matter if it's 30 below zero or pouring down rain, you've got people coming out."

And even before the actual promotion begins, Louderback is enjoying his private party. "They've been taking really good care of me," he says. "They brought me a chicken biscuit this morning for breakfast, actually two chicken biscuits, and Dr. pepper and then they brought me out a piece of cheesecake a little while ago, and just now for lunch, they brought me out a chicken sandwich."

He'll be getting a free chicken sandwich every single week for the next year after camping out here overnight, and he won't be alone. He says, "Come on out. Doors don't open 'til six. Be one of the first 100 in with me in the morning."

Otherwise, well, Louderback just might take all the free meals for himself. Tonight, there will be a free concert and a movie shown on a big screen in The Chick-fil-a parking lot. Chick-fil-a President Dan Cathy will camp out with customers.
