Around 130 people arrived on Wednesday morning, hoping for a year's worth of meals
Libby Knupp was attending her 87th Chick-fil-A Wednesday afternoon in Springfield. She had already been camped out for 10 hours, and she wasn't going anywhere. "Once we'd get into a Chick-fil-A [opening], the only way we'd leave is on a stretcher." Knupp, 71, and her husband Jake, 73, live in St. Petersburg, Fla., when they aren't traveling the country attending Chick-fil-A openings.

Hundreds line up ahead of new restaurant's opening.
A little more than a hundred Chick-fil-A fans were lined up at the restaurant's new Springfield location this morning, hoping for a chance to win a year's worth of food from the chain. The Chick-fil-A, located at 6881-A Backlick Road, will open tomorrow at 6 a.m. The first 100 customers will win a meal a week at Chick-fil-A for 52 weeks, as long as they stay in line from 6 a.m. today until the restaurant opens. Because more than 100 people were in line in the morning, the first 100 spots were raffled off, according to Chick-fil-A spokesperson Tiffany Simmons. Simmons also sent pictures from the early-morning line. See also: At Chick-fil-A Opening Thursday, 'First 100' Customers Get Free Meals for a Year Patch will be on the scene later …
