The Town of Harrisburg is eagerly awaiting the grand opening of their first Chick-fil-A this week. 

The restaurant, located at 6805 Jenkins Ln., will open on Thursday, Feb. 7.

Patrons will be able to find the new location inside of the Harris Square shopping center with the Publix, Smoothie King and Dough Re Mi Donuts. 

The area has been waiting a long time for this Chick-fil-A opening. The community is invited to be part of the restaurant’s First 100 Campout this week! 

According to Chick-fil-A’s website, the first 100 participants at the grand opening of a restaurant that comply with the rules receive a grand prize of one Chick-fil-A Sandwich meal per week for a year. A Chick-fil-A Sandwich Meal consists of a Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich, medium waffle potato fries and a medium drink.

Only those that live in the following zip codes are eligible to participate: 28023, 28075, 28088, 28126, 28215, 28263, 28025, 28081, 28097, 28138, 28223, 28269, 28026, 29082, 28107, 28163, 28227, 28027, 28083, 28124, 28213 and 28262.

Giveaway rules: 

Thanks to overwhelming support, the First 100 Giveaway has grown tremendously over the years. Increasingly, there have been very large crowds arriving very early. To help ease confusion and to allow guests equal opportunity to participate, a new process has been put in place to choose the First 100 Winners.

Unless otherwise noted, arrive at the restaurant between 5:30 a.m. and 6 a.m. local time on the day before a grand opening. Go to the restaurant and express your interest in participating in the giveaway.
