Tent City Pops Up in Front of Hollywood's New Chick-fil-A
If you build it, they will come. And if you offer free chicken for a year, they will come from the ends of the earth and camp out.
Yes, Hollywood's gleaming new Chick-fil-A opened this morning. About 175 faithful enthusiasts heard the call and responded. They started showing up at the corner of Sunset Avenue and Highland Avenue yesterday, just one day before the grand opening of the fast food joint at Highland and Sunset, according to Hollywood Patch.
One hundred really
lucky hardcore people camped out overnight and in return got coupons for a year's worth of meals at Chick-fil-A today.
One of those diehard Chick-fil-A fans was Richard Coley, who flew in all the way from St. Petersburg, Florida, in a special tent that he has now officially used for 68 Chick-fil-A events.
"I love the products, the food, and I'm very impressed with their people from the kitchen help all the way up to the corporate office," Coley said. (We're guessing Coley doesn't have a problem with some of Chick-fil-A's controversial stances.)
Coley plans to got to Utah on the way home for just one more grand opening. "I'm a fanatical, raving fan and supporter of Chick-fil-A," he said.
It wasn't clear from the article if Coley is winning free chicken at all 68 events, or if he is just there for the party.
