Chick-fil-A will open the first stand-alone Chic-fil-A restaurant in Audubon, New Jersey, on Jan. 29, giving away more than $26,000 in free food and creating more than 65 new jobs in the market.

Chick-fil-A will award a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A Meals (52 certificates) to each of the first 100 adults in line at the restaurant located at 110 Black Horse Pike. The line officially begins forming up to 24 hours before the grand opening, with the prizes being awarded Jan.29 sometime between 6 a.m. and 6:30 a.m. The restaurant will open for business immediately afterward.

With the country facing challenging economic times, Chick-fil-A continues to grow, with plans to add 65 new stand-alone locations across the nation this year, creating more than 4,200 new jobs as well as providing a positive business impact in local communities.

"Chick-fil-A is grateful that we are in a position to continue our restaurant expansion," says Chick-fil-A, Inc., president Dan Cathy, son of the chain's founder, Truett Cathy.

The menu at the new restaurant will include several enhancements rolled out chain-wide in 2008. These include a new Chick-fil-A Chargrilled and Fruit Salad with Harvest Nut Granola topping, Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Strips that are 50 percent larger and are complemented by a new proprietary dipping sauce called Chick-fil-A Sauce, a Chick-fil-A Chicken Salad Sandwich served on a new premium Wheatberry bread with green leaf lettuce, and Cool Wrap selections that come in a new multi-grain flatbread.
