Frankfort’s first Chick-fil-A is set to open on Thursday.
An overnight family-friendly “First 100” party popped up in the restaurant parking lot at 1300 U.S. Hwy 127 South Wednesday morning, 24 hours before their grand opening at 6:00 a.m., August 4. The first 100 guests will receive a digital card that entitles them to a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A meals, in the form of 52 meals of a Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, medium Waffle Potato Fries and a medium drink. As of 10:00 a.m., about 45 campers were already at the restaurant.
If you can’t make it to Frankfort for the grand opening, participating Central Kentucky Chick-fil-A restaurants are also getting in on the celebration, giving away a free, three-count Chick-n-Minis during breakfast hours on Aug. 11. One per customer while supplies last.
Franchise owner Chase Harper is also collecting new and gently used children’s book until 9:00 p.m. at the restaurant. The donated books will be placed in a nearly 3-foot Book House to serve as a free library exchange. Since 2014, Chick-fil-A has collected more than 21,500 books which were donated to 132 local organizations in 37 states and Washington, D.C.
