After debuting in Connecticut Oct. 9 with the opening of its first restaurant in Brookfield, Chick-fil-A is scheduled to open two more franchises Nov. 6 in Wallingford and Danbury. Each location will offer its "First 100 " free food promotion to the first 100 adults in line when the restaurants officially open.
In Wallingford, the quick-service chicken restaurant at 1098 N. Colony Road opens for business at 6 a.m. Thursday, and guests are invited to line up as of 6 a.m. Wednesday to earn a one-year's supply of free Chick-fil-A food (a digital offer card loaded with 52 free meals.) Guests are then required to stay in line on site until the Thursday morning opening.
Chick-fil-A also opens at the Danbury Fair Mall at 9 a.m. Thursday. Guests are invited to stand in line starting at 9 a.m. Wednesday at a Chick-fil-A tent located on the mall's overflow parking lot, near the main entrance at 7 Backus Avenue.
If more than 100 people are onsite when the lines officially open at either location, all 100 spots will be determined by a drawing held that morning, with those selected needing to camp out for 24 hours to secure their spot, according to the company. (No tents will be allowed at the Danbury event, per regulations.) Details, rules and regulations are online at chick-fil-a.com.
A planned Chick-fil-A restaurant at 25 Hazard Ave. in Enfield is projected to open in the first quarter of 2015, bringing the total number of Connecticut locations to four.
