Chick-fil-A to open sixth area restaurant Wednesday in Rancho Cordova

Atlanta-based chicken sandwich/meals chain Chick-fil-A will open a new restaurant Wednesday in Rancho Cordova.

The restaurant at 2354 Sunrise Blvd. will give the first 100 adults in line that morning one meal a week for an entire year.

The line for the “first 100” will open at 6 a.m. Tuesday, with the prizes to be awarded around 6 a.m. during the outlet’s opening the next day. If more than 100 people are in line by 6 a.m. Tuesday, the top 100 spots will be determined by a drawing. Drawing winners still must camp out at the site for 24 hours, officials said.

Eligible winners must reside within Sacramento region ZIP codes. That list can be found at

People also can donate books for the Williamson Elementary School in Rancho Cordova, Tuesday through Thursday.

The new Chick-fil-A is the sixth in the Sacramento area and will employ about 80. The chain said it plans to open another new restaurant on Madison Avenue in Sacramento, tentatively in late November.
