MORGANTON, NC (FOX Carolina) -

The town of Morganton celebrated its love of Chick-fil-A on Thursday morning with more than 100 people lined up for the restaurant's grand opening.

People hoping to get some free food and prizes camped out up to 24 hours in advance at the restaurant.

The first 100 customers got vouchers for a year's worth of Chick-fil-A as part of the grand opening celebration at the Burkemont Avenue location.

The new restaurant will create 70 new jobs in town.

It will be open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
