Albany--A special treat for local heroes on Friday evening as an Albany restaurant showed support for our hard working public servants.

Chick-fil-A on Dawson Road saluted men and women in uniform.

The community was invited to the meet and greet Albany police officers, firefighters, and EMS workers.

The restaurant gave away free meals to those workers and anyone with a military ID or uniform.

Customers also received coupons for free sandwiches.

Chick-Fil-A's popular mascot was there also.

"We just wanted to say how much we here at Chick-Fil-A support the community just to show everyone that we love Albany and hopefully Albany loves Chick-Fil-A," said Christopher Wilkinson, Chick-Fil-A Marketing Intern.

"We appreciate the effort, and it's nice for people to recognize what you do, " said Mark Spriggle, Dougherty County EMA.

Meet the Heroes night is part of Chick-Fil-A's Customer Appreciation Week Extravaganza.
