From a press release:
The 1,500-square-foot Capitol Hill East Chick-fil-A drive-thru restaurant features a:
· kitchen with Chick-fil-A’s latest design and equipment.
· pedestrian walk-up window and patio that seats 20.
· full-service menu with healthy options and breakfast until 10:30 a.m., and will be open Monday through Saturday from 6:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. Like all Chick-fil-A locations, it will be closed on Sunday to provide a day of rest and time with family for team members.
Local franchise owner Peter Choi will celebrate the June 1 opening of D.C.’s newest Chick-fil-A restaurant with the area’s first Chick-fil-A Road Trip on May 31. Upwards of 100 adults will be transported on an interactive field trip around the area where their efforts not only will impact thousands, but also will earn each of them a year supply of Chick-fil-A meals.
The new restaurant at 1401 Maryland Ave., NE., is creating 60 new jobs in the area and providing the opportunity for the community to donate children’s books to benefit Miner Elementary School.
Chick-fil-A Road Trip Celebration
Chick-fil-A’s First 100 campouts have given away more than $31 million in free food through 2016 and continue to be the chain’s signature event to celebrate the opening of a new location. However, this Chick-fil-A grand opening celebration will not involve any overnight activities but a Road Trip where up to 100 eligible participants, 18 years and older, can start gathering at 5:45 a.m. on May 31 to register and immediately participate in the grand opening celebration.
Designed to be an exceptional experience on many levels, participants will travel around the greater D.C. area on chartered buses. They will spend approximately six hours being engaged in activities that will provide opportunities to get up and move in addition to impacting and moving others in the community with acts of service along the way, including assembling 10,000 meals for D.C. Central Kitchen. Upon completion of the road trip, each eligible participant will return to the Capitol Hills East restaurant around 4:30 p.m. to continue the celebration. The post-road trip party will include dinner and participants being awarded with a digital offer card loaded with a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A meals (52 meals with each consisting of a Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich, medium Waffle Potato Fries and a medium beverage).
Registration will be held at the restaurant that morning from 6 a.m. until 9:45 a.m. or until 100 eligible adult participants are reached, whichever comes first. If more than 100 people are onsite when the line officially opens at 6 a.m. on May 31, a drawing will be held to randomly select 100 guests with each required to participate in the road trip and celebration being held until 6 p.m. that day. The event is open to guests residing in specific zip codes surrounding the restaurant. A list of eligible zip codes and event rules can be found here.
“My team members and I can’t wait to welcome our guests and provide each of them with a remarkable experience,” said Choi. “We are committed to our vision of loving our guests, community and leach other while serving delicious food with sincere hospitality.
Children’s Book Drive
Eager to immediately impact the local area, Choi is inviting the community to celebrate the new location by participating in a children’s new and gently used book drive to benefit Miner Elementary. The donated books will be placed in a nearly 3-foot Book House, made from reclaimed wood, to serve as a free library exchange. Since 2014, Chick-fil-A has collected more than 41,177 books which were donated to 241 local organizations in 43 states and Washington, D.C.”
