Loyal Chick-fil-A fans brave cold for chain's Rochester debut

Posted: Updated:
ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -

A popular fast-food chain opened its doors in the Med City for the first time Thursday morning. 

If you wanted Chick-fil-A before, you had to make the trek to the Twin Cities, but not anymore. 

The restaurant is known for its famous chicken sandwiches and biscuits, and for being closed on Sundays. 

The restaurant brings with it 100 new jobs. Customers are encouraged to bring a book for a grand-opening book drive benefiting the Rochester Public Library.

This is the 16th Chick-fil-A to open in Minnesota since its debut in the state in 2013.

The store opens at 6 a.m. at its location at the Crossroads Center off of South Broadway Ave. 

Dozens camped out overnight, waiting 24 hours in order to win various prizes, including free chicken.
