The grand opening ceremony of the new Chick-fil-A in Copperas Cove isn’t until 9:30 a.m. on Feb 20, but you’d never know it from the rows of tents outside the location today. Approximately 130 individuals are currently camped out in the Chick-fil-A parking lot during its traditional First 100 event, where 100 participants enter a drawing and have to stay at the facility for 24 hours in order to win free Chick-fil-A for a year. During that time, participants will be treated to breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack, and later today there will be games, contests and live D.J. entertainment.
