One hundred industrious South Bay residents will obey the cow's command to 'Eat Mor Chikin' this week.

People who live close to the Chick-fil-A restaurant opening in El Segundo on Thursday, Jan. 30 will have the opportunity to win free chicken meals for a year, according to a news release from the Atlanta-based fast food chain.

The restaurant, at 740 N. Pacific Coast Highway in El Segundo, will have a “red carpet roll-out” beginning at 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 29. The new stand-alone restaurant is just south of the 105 freeway, a short drive from LAX.

The first 100 guests to register will become eligible to win 52 meals consisting of a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich, a medium order of waffle fries, and a medium beverage.

If there are more than 100 people in line, a drawing will be held at 8 p.m. for those who stick around.

Some Chick-fil-A restaurants have overnight campouts instead of red carpet events, including locations in Riverside and Lake Elsinore last year.

There are several rules for wining First 100 prizes, including residing within certain ZIP codes.
