EAGLE PASS, Texas – Grab your tents and getting ready to camp overnight because the first 100 people in line at the new Eagle Pass Chick-fil-A will receive free Chick-fil-A for a year!
Franchise owner Juan Garza is opening Eagle Pass’ first stand-alone Chick-fil-A on Saturday, Oct. 20.
This opening will bring 85 new jobs to the city as well as the chance for 100 adults to win free Chick-fil-A meals for a year.
For nearly 13 years, people across the country have camped outside new Chick-fil-A locations, some for days, just for the chance to win that special offer. The First 100 will win a digital offer card loaded with a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-a meals that includes 52 meals consisting of an original chicken sandwich, waffle fries, and a medium drink. You have to be 18 and older to participate.
Note that this event is open to guest residing in specific zip codes surrounding the restaurant. A complete list of zip codes and rules can be found at www.chick-fil-a.com/Locations/Openings.
The First 100 party is expected to pop up in the parking lot 24 hours before the official grand opening.
If more than 100 people are onsite when the line opens at 6 a.m. on Oct. 19, a drawing will be held to select the First 100. The chosen will then be required to camp out until the grand opening in order to secure their spot.
In a press release Garza said:
“My team members and I can’t wait to welcome our guests. We’re not just in the chicken business, we’re in the people business. Our goal is to provide a remarkable experience for every customer, every time, by serving food our guests can truly feel good about eating, providing sincere hospitality and being a good neighbor in the Eagle Pass community.”
Along with the grand opening, Garza is asking his First 100 guests and customers to celebrate the new location by participating in a children’s book drive for the Boys and Girls Club of Eagle Pass.
Garza is collecting new and gently used children’s books on Oct. 19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Oct. 20 from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The books will be placed in a 3-foot Book House to serve as a free library exchange.

The Eagle Pass Chick-fil-a is located at 635 South Bibb Avenue and will be open 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. on Oct. 22.
