Chick-fil-A Set to Open Nov. 17 in Kalispell

Franchise to award a year’s supply of meals to first 100 in line

The state’s first Chick-fil-A is slated to open in Kalispell Nov. 17 when local franchise owner Casey Meadows will hold a grand opening and award a year’s supply of meals to the first 100 customers through the door.

A tradition dating back more than a decade, the “First 100” party is expected to assemble at the new restaurant parking lot at 35 Treeline Drive, gathering up to 24 hours prior to the official opening at 6 a.m. in hopes of winning a year’s worth of free Chick-fil-A meals.

The first 100 eligible adults, ages 18 or older with identification, will receive 52 free meals, with each consisting of a Chick-fil-A sandwich, medium waffle potato fries and a medium beverage.

The community event is open to guests residing in specific zip codes surrounding the restaurant. A complete listing of eligible zip codes and rules can be found at

Known for its original chicken sandwich, Chick-fil-A has nearly 2,100 restaurants in 45 states and Washington, D.C.

The company is hiring about 120 full- and part-time workers for the Kalispell store.

      Actually, if it was ‘white trash’ food they would have built it in Evergreen.

      Best chicken sandwich in the world!!

    I will never support this franchise as it is anti American to espouse bigotry and hatred.
    All people, no matter what race, creed, or sexual preference, must be treated equally under our constitution (period). The owner of this franchise believes he is above this standard. If we tolerate this behavior now, it might be applied to you (or us), later.
    No chicken sandwich is worth that, IMHO.
