      Lee County can finally "Eat Mor Chikin" as the newest location of Chick-fil-A is now open for business in the Lee Crossings Plaza.

      After a 24-hour campout in the restaurant parking lot, the first 100 customers received coupons for a year's worth of Chick-fil-A during Thursday morning's grand opening.

      This newest location is considered a standalone restaurant and offers things the Albany restaurants do not.

      "It has an indoor dining room. It has a playground for the kids, a really great playground, and we have a few extra menu items that we don't have in some of our smaller kitchens so we're really excited about that," said Anna Wari, human resources director for Chick-fil-A.

      Following Chick-fil-A standards, the restaurant will not be open Sundays but if you need your chicken fix, Wari recommends buying nuggets and freezing them. Reheating instructions come on all catering boxes.
