Dozens Campout in Encinitas for Shot at Year’s Supply of Chick-fil-A

Thursday morning 100 customers will each win 52 meal vouchers.

Thursday morning Chick-fil-A will open its doors in Encinitas, and there’ll be at least 100 customers lined up—all of them hoping to win a one year supply of food.

As part of its grand opening, the first 100 adult customers will each get 52 meal vouchers, and as of Wednesday morning, there were already dozens of people camped out in the parking lot. If more than 100 people show up, the spots will be raffled.

The giveaway is slated to happen around 6 a.m. and the restaurant will open for business immediately after that.

The company, which seen a lot of public backlash for its political views on gay marriage, has more than 1,600 locations in the nation. This new $1 million construction on El Camino Real is one of 96 locations the chain plans to open across the country in 2012, according to a news release from the company.

The Encinitas location of Chick-fil-A is located at 194 N El Camino Real. For more information about the Encinitas location, you can visit the restaurant’s Facebok page or website.

That would be a really nice thing to win and GIVE IT TO A HOMELESS PERSON to help them have food on a daily basis and that homeless person could share it with other homeless people so THEY can eat too. Who really needs 52 meals from ANY fast food restaurant? The homeless does. ...matter of fact why doesn't Chick-fil-A give all that food DIRECTLY to the homeless????????? That would be awfully nice :)

That's the dumbest comment I've heard in a while. Are you like twelve or something?

They are very charitable .. http://chick-fil-abowl.com/GivingBack/CharitableGiving.aspx this is clearly a promotion to build business for a new unit ..

"as of Wednesday morning, there were already dozens of people camped out in the parking lot" It takes a special kind of idiot to spend 24 hours in a parking lot for $500 of store credit at a fast food restaurant.

One of them might be gay.
