WEST DES MOINES - Dozens of people set up their tent outside of Chick-fil-a's new location off University Ave. in West Des Moines. It's not just because they love chicken, it was for the promise of free food.

The first 100 people in line when the new restaurant opens Wednesday morning will get free food for a year.

We asked some of the campers how they'll pass the time until tomorrow. They brought games and snacks and family members as company.

As part of the grand opening, Chick-fil-a is also asking people to bring donated books that'll be given to a local non-profit.
