INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A new Chick-fil-A opened in Indianapolis Thursday morning.
The restaurant is located on Keystone Avenue across from Broad Ripple Park. A group of people braved the storms overnight and slept outside for free food.
The chain says the first 100 people would get free meals for a year. 24-Hour News 8 spoke with some people camping out. Some say they had been there since Wednesday morning.
“This is about my 7th time doing this,” said Karen Griffin from Louisville. “It’s been a lot of fun. I love Chick-fil-A food. I eat here all the time. It’s fun — you get to know the people here.”
“I’ve done 28 of them,” Les Simpson from Troy, Ohio said. “I don’t do it for the free food. I do it because I have a great time, and Chick-fil-A is very good to you. So, I can’t complain.”
The restaurant says the line to get inside opened at 6 a.m. They said if more than 100 people were camping out there would be a drawing to see who got the spots.
