Chick-fil-A's new restaurant on Bloomingdale Avenue will open this summer with the chain's "First 100" celebration, an offer that grants the first 100 participants at the grand opening one Chick-fil-A Sandwich meal per week for a year (equating to 52 meals).

However, the customers must comply with the official rules and the rules are pretty extensive.

For starters, the winners must live in geographic proximity to the restaurant. Chick-fil-A will designate specific ZIP codes.

The restaurant maintains this stipulation to, "ensure those neighbors, whom we'll be serving at that location in the future, have a seat at the table in welcoming and getting to know their neighborhood Chick-fil-A."

Since 2003, Chick-fil-A has given away almost $24 million in free food via its First 100 celebrations. For the complete rules, go to chick-fil-a.com/Locations/First-100-Details.

The company announced last month it plans to open the new Brandon location in the complex where Walmart is building a new store near the Bloomingdale Library.

The new restaurant will feature an upgraded interior with additional patio dining.
