YOUR ODDS OF WINNING A YEAR’S SUPPLY OF CHICKEN SANDWICHES AT CHICK-FIL-A’S NEXT PEARLAND GRAND OPENING One in 1,365, a little slimmer than the chance of landing heads on a coin toss 10 times in a row. The Chick-fil-A in question, Pearland’s fifth, opens at Hwy. 288 and Aldine-Fort Bend Rd. on July 25, and in keeping with custom, the store is giving away 52 free #1 meals (chicken sandwich, medium Waffle Potato Fries, and a medium drink) to a group of 100 lucky loyalists selected from those who spend the night before camped out at the location, reports the Chronicle’s Dana Burke. This time though, the franchise is taking measures to ensure that only hometown competitors 18-and-up get access to the prize by limiting eligibility by zip code. The challengers: 77584, 77581, 77588, 77578, 77048, and 77047 — home to 136,500 legal adult residents of Pearland, Brookside Village, Shadow Creek Ranch, Manvel, and parts of Southeast Houston including Crestmont. To keep things competitive, reports Burke: “All participants must remain in their designated spots the entire time, with the exception of bathroom breaks.” [Houston Chronicle] Photo of 2016 Chick-fil-A First 100 event in Prestonwood, Texas: Chick-fil-A
Uh..Hell no. Camp out overnight on a parking lot in the Houston heat & humidity for a Chick-Fil-A meal. I’ll pass.
I never eat Chik-Fil-A ….. nasty tasting and full of added sugar. To camp overnight for a free “meal” is just unthinkable.
I’ve got no beef with the actual CFA food. But, I’m not camping out in a parking lot during a Houston summer for a free meal. If it were in early November, then maybe.
This is just nuts, I don’t know what a #1 costs but the whole deal can’t be worth more than $200. Decidedly NOT worth the time and investment.
It’s not even worth the gas and time it costs to get back and forth from the store just for a mediocre sandwich you could get from anyone. If you’re picking up for the family then might as well go somewhere you can actually use coupons.
Nope. Don’t eat anti-gay CFA. Better options anyway.
Bigotry on a bun. HELL no!
