COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

With 24 hours left until the Chick-fil-A at Columbus Park Crossing opens, more than 50 devoted fans of the beloved chicken restaurant are already lining up.

The first 100 customers at the new restaurant will receive a year’s supply of Chick-fil-A when the doors open tomorrow morning.

These customers will be fed and entertained throughout the day, so there is no need to worry about losing your place in line should you get hungry.

Operator Todd Kalish, who also operates the Bradley Park location of Chick-fil-A, will host the day’s grand opening activities, which includes a children’s book drive.

“I am excited to continue expanding Chick-fil-A in Columbus as it enables me to be a part of my guests’ lives by not only serving them at our restaurant but also on the other side of our doors as well,” said Kalish. “It is my passion to also positively impact my 85 new restaurant team members with opportunities for personal growth and leadership development while encouraging them to continue their education.”

The new Chick-fil-A location officially opens at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow morning, Jan. 31.
