Moultrie Chick-Fil-A grand opening attracts large crowd

March 13, 2008

Moultrie--The nation's second-largest chicken restaurant chain, rewarded those who waited in line for Moultrie's first stand-alone Chick-fil-A restaurant this morning.

Dozens of people from Moultrie and the rest of the country camped out at the restaurant for a chance to win free food.

Jake and Libby Knupp from Virginia camped out at the restaurant since Tuesday afternoon. 

Their devotion to the fast food chain paid off.  The Knupps were one of one-hundred adults to win a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A Combo Meals (52 coupons).

This is the Knupps' eleventh time attending a Chick-Fil-A grand opening.  Immediately after getting their reward, they packed up and head back to Virginia to get ready for another grand opening being held in two weeks in Virginia.

Launched in 2003 to mark the opening of the chain's first stand-alone restaurant in Arizona, the First 100 Fans promotion continues to draw Chick-fil-A raving fans from all over the country.

Armed with tents, computers, games and even swimming pools, campers turn the grand opening event into an all-night tailgate party.

The Moultrie restaurant is located at 502 Lane Street.
