El Paso’s newest Chick-fil-A location is now open in East El Paso, on the corner of Airway and Edgemere.
The “Eat More Chicken” chain welcomed more than a hundred excited customers who camped outside for hours, some for more than a day, enduring blistering heat.
The first 100 customers will receive a free meal everyday for a year from the franchise.
The new location is bringing more than 100 new jobs to the area. Franchise owner Anthony Martinez tells KTSM all positions are now full but they may reevaluate the need, depending on foot traffic, and add more positions in the future.
Corporate officials tell KTSM the company’s next plans are to bring a location to Northwest El Paso at the West Towne Market Place.
