The newest Chick-fil-A restaurant in New York opened this week in Cicero with more than 150 people lining the street to try to win free chicken and waffle fires for a year.

Chick-fil-A generally offers free food for a year to the first 100 customers through the door whenever they open a new location, but this time there was something else the winners had to do to claim their prize.

According to, the winners were asked to do a day of community service together along with officials from Chick-fil-A.

The winners were given free t-shirts and breakfast before boarding a bus and heading out to tour the Samaritan Center, serve meals at Francis House in Syracuse and shop for books at Barnes & Noble to be donated to a local school.

Jimmer Szatkowski who owns and operates the Cicero location says the community service aspect is something that he added to the promotion as a way to give back to the area.

The Cicero Chick-fil-A officially opened its doors on Thursday.
