Traditionally, when Chick-Fil-A opens a new location, they hold a grand opening ceremony where the first 100 people in line get free food for a year. However, with this opening, the fast-food chain said that they will instead surprise 100 local heroes making an impact in Orlando with free Chick-Fil-A for a year.

In addition, they said that Chick-Fil-A is donating $25,000 to Feed America, who will distribute the funds to partners in the Orlando area to aid in the fight against hunger.
