Chick-fil-A will make the first 100 customers feel as comfortable as possible with fun games, music, and a social ice cream party while customers are camping out during its “First 100 Celebration.”

The first 100 adults in line on Wednesday morning will receive a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A value meals.

“The head count of the 100 customers will start at 5:30 a.m., then they will begin to lineup at 6:00 a.m.,” said Jeff Koch, Chick-fil-A operator of the Troy location.

Koch said if it’s more than 100 customers who attend the event, there would be a raffle to decide which chicken sandwich fans receive the free year’s supply of food.

Wristbands will be given to those who are qualified, and the customers are required to stay on the property for 24 hours.

There will be music and games to entertain the customers during their stay. From 9 to 10 p.m. Wednesday night there will be an ice cream dessert social.

“The friends and family of the winners are welcomed to stay during the event,” said Koch.

Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be available to everyone who is in attendance. Customers must be at least 18 years or older with proper identification to qualify.
