VACAVILLE — Vacaville is getting its first Chick-fil-A.

Chick-fil-A is to open in September at 2081 Harbison Drive. It will be housed in a new, 4,400-square-foot building and provide about 80 jobs, a company press release said.

The restaurant is already making plans for a celebration. When opening day comes, the first 100 adults will get 52 free Chick-fil-A meals. Chick-fil-A calls this a year’s supply.

Chick-fil-A made a similar offer when it opened a Fairfield restaurant in April 2012. The people near the front of the line arrived about 24 hours in advance and camped overnight.

Chick-fil-A plans to open 88 new restaurants across the country in 2014, the press release said. The restaurant chain in 2013 reported annual sales of more than $5 billion.

    If chicken is so healthy then why do most Chik-fil-a's lover's bodies look the way they do?

    I saw a new Chick-fil-A being built at what once was a Carl's Jr. that got bull dozed, just off Rowland Blvd. in Novato...

    Then why do they keep opening Green Burrito versions all over California?

    I am not sure maybe it is a property issue where they just lease the space, This is what I found in the past ,,, (paste),,,,,,,,,,,,CKE has, however, all but stopped building restaurants in this state because approvals and permits for establishing them can take up to two years, compared with as little as six weeks in Texas, and the cost to build one is $100,000 more than in Texas, where CKE is planning to open 300 restaurants this decade
