More than 90 people hunkered down in a central Arkansas parking lot hoping to claim a year of free meals from a new Chick-fil-A restaurant opening Thursday, according to a news release.

Chicken enthusiasts set up shop at 113 Commons Drive in Maumelle, where they will wait for the next 24 hours for a chance to earn free meals, the release said.

The Arkansas operator of the store, Carter Tucker, will award the prize — 52 free meals, or one a week for a year — to the first 100 people in line, the release said. It's a common promotion at Chick-fil-A openings.

The location will be the 33rd Chick-fil-A operating in Arkansas and the 11th in the central Arkansas area, the release said.

The restaurant opens at 6 a.m. Thursday.

More importantly are they that hungry or desperate to get food that they would do this?

Judging from a few pics some of them don't look live they've missed to many meals. A few of them look like they need to skip the free food and hit the sidewalk. You couldn't pay me enough money to sit out there for free food. They're not hungry, just nothing better to do. Pathetic.
