Freebie Friday: Free “Chikin” for EVERYONE!

I remember five years ago, when the Boone Chick-Fil-A restaurant opened it’s doors to the flooding masses. We were SO excited for several reasons:

  • We would have a really tasty quick-service restaurant in Boone, with healthy choices for kids.  (CFA came before the other places started offering fruit, I believe)
  • Many more people would have jobs here, from high school kids to moms, to grandmothers.
  • Finally, High Country moms would have a restaurant with an indoor play area!  On those long winter days when the kids are home from school, the Chick-Fil-A is ALWAYS hoppin’!
  • They will actually CARRY your tray to the table if you have kids and full hands!

In celebration of five years of operation, the Oliver Family along with Chick-fil-A  are going to do something HUGE! They will give every guest that comes in or goes through the drive thru a FREE CHICK-FIL-A CHICKEN SANDWICH!

Chick Fil a

OK, well, not the dog...

On Monday September 7th, Labor Day, between 10:30 am and 10 pm, come to the Boone Chick-Fil-A to redeem your free sandwich. You can also upgrade to wheat bun or add lettuce and cheese for free!   They will have games, prizes and a fun appearance by “Moo Cow” during lunch and dinner.

Everywhere else in the US, Chick-Fil-A will be having their Labor Day Giveaway, where anyone who wears a sports team logo can receive a free sandwich!  Only in Boone, can every single person who comes through the door take away free “Chikin”!

So as a thank you to the Olivers and Chick-Fil-A of five years of service with a “my pleasure,”  leave your best memory at the Chick-Fil_A in Boone, or your favorite thing to eat in the comments. Oh, it’s not required in order to get your free meal, but it’s just fun!


In other news, the Jobe Family has WON the popular vote in the Cow Appreciation Day Photo Contest!! They gained something like 800 votes in the few hours before the deadline.  The Jobes win is a testimony to how loved they are by their friends and family,  The High Country community’s support, as well as their friends, families, and churches across the country.  In the seventh inning stretch, the Mom Bloggers and Twitterati pushed them over the edge!!

The Chick-Fil-A corporation still has to make the final decision, but in our book, the Jobes are winners no matter how it comes out!.


  1. it’s where my kid had her very first ice cream cone. we still love to watch her eat cones at CFA, since that’s the only place she gets them!

  2. Aw, that is so cute! Once Ava had a huge accident there while she was potty-training, and we had promised the kids ice cream, so she ate ice cream naked with a pull-up on in the Chick-Fil-A. We joke that was our “redneck moment”
