Chicken sandwich lovers and fans of waffle fries are lining up at the new Chick-fil-A restaurant in Cypress Creek Town Center in Lutz as it gets ready to open on Thursday, June 30.
So why are they in line a day early? The company is promising free Chick-fil-A meals for a year to the first 100 people lined up in the parking lot at 2349 Sun Vista Drive. Around 8:15 a.m. on Wednesday, there were already close to 70 people in line.
According to the press release, each fan hopes to win a digital offer card loaded with a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A meals (52 meals with each consisting of a Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, medium Waffle Potato Fries and a medium beverage) that will be awarded to the first 100 eligible adults - ages 18 and older with identification - in line when the doors open at 6 a.m. on June 30. If more than 100 people are on site when the line officially opens at 6 a.m. on June 29, a drawing will be held to randomly select the First 100. Those chosen will be required to camp out until the grand opening in order to secure their spot.

While they stand and wait for the Grand Opening, those in line get meals, they can have fun playing games and they can dance along to a DJ.
That isn’t the only exciting thing going on at this brand new location. In addition to the free year of meals, the opening of the restaurant is also bringing 100 new jobs to the area. They are also donating children’s books to Lutz Elementary. The new location is collecting new and gently used children’s books at the restaurant between 6:30 a.m. and 10 p.m. on June 29 and 30. The donated books will be placed in a nearly 3-foot Book House to serve as a free library exchange.
The new Cypress Creek Town Center Chick-fil-A restaurant will offer a full-service menu, including breakfast until 10:30 a.m., and will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Like all Chick-fil-A locations, it will be closed on Sunday.
