Truett’s Chick-fil-A will open in Rome on Dec. 13, replacing the former Rome Dwarf House, creating more than 140 new jobs (in addition to 100 returning Team Members) and the chance for 100 eligible adults to win free Chick-fil-A for a year.

   Chick-fil-A’s most passionate customers arrive hours in advance, packing tents, lawn chairs, computers, TVs, couches and all kinds of gear to make their wait more comfortable and entertaining. Chick-fil-A provides security, entertainment, games, restroom access, and, of course, plenty of fresh Chick-fil-A. 

   The line for the promotion opens at 8 a.m., Wednesday, Dec. 12, at the restaurant at 264 Shorter Ave. NW in Rome. If there are more than 100 people in line at that time, a drawing will be held to determine the 100 who will stay on site for the next 24 hours. If there are fewer than 100 people, we’ll continue to register participants until we reach 100.  The community promotion is open to people age 18 and older with ID living in specific zip codes surrounding the restaurant. Please see http://www.chick-fil-a.com/Locations/First-100 for details. Prizes will be awarded around 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, Dec. 13.

   The opening comes months after the former Dwarf House was torn town. The new restaurant, complete with a new name, features the chain’s latest design innovations, service technologies and expanded drive-thru service but retains customer menu favorites and incorporates elements paying tribute to Chick-fil-A Founder S. Truett Cathy. As part of the celebration, Executive General Manager Greg Major will be collecting new and gently used books to benefit The Boys & Girls Club of Northwest Georgia.
