FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Despite the snow, more than 100 people camped in a Fort Collins parking lot for a chance to win a year's supply of free chicken.
Chick-fil-A opened a new restaurant Thursday morning and, as with other grand openings, the company promised a free chicken sandwich meal every week for a year to the first 100 customers.
Chick-fil-A representative Hollee Swain said 104 people plus two children turned out even though only customers over 18 are eligible.
Swain says campers huddled around propane heaters supplied by the company and were invited inside for hot chocolate and cookies before bedding down in subzero sleeping bags in their tents.
The four people who didn't make the cut received gift bags with coupons for free meals.
