North Carolina Chick-fil-A Shuttered by Florence Opens its Doors to First-Responders Only
“We are so thankful for your hard work and proud of our community as we work to rebuild, together.”
After being shuttered by the historic storm, the Chick-fil-A location on Oleander Drive in Wilmington announced on Facebook that it would be reopening its dining room to first responders only. The general public would have to use the drive-thru.
Between 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., the men and women leading the recovery effort were invited to sit back, relax, and enjoy a free meal in the dining room.
“All first responders, emergency personnel, and linemen are invited to join us for a free meal. We will have our dining room open for you,” the restaurant wrote. “We are so thankful for your hard work and proud of our community as we work to rebuild, together.”
"We wanted to provide yet another place for responders to use the restroom, get a hot meal and cold drink, and rest out of the hot sun," the restaurant told Fox News.

Now that’s what we call good service!
