Christian Birdseye is looking for a few good community events. Maybe more than a few. The Chick-Fil-A employee served my family on Monday as we were treated to a free lunch. Ten days earlier we each went to www.getspicychicken.com and printed a coupon for a free Spicy Chicken Sandwich. When we went to redeem them, we were told that those who chose to eat on the outdoor patio would be treated to a free drink and side item too.
During the course of our conversation, Christian told us about the difficult process of becoming a Chick-Fil-A franchisee. He also asked if I knew of any upcoming community events where he could send the cows and distribute coupons for free sandwiches. I think that one challenge for him will be to find big events that don’t already have a restaurant sponsor.
Christian had a few occasions in mind where he will hand out actual sandwiches. I told him a little about my Coffee/Oatmeal TweetUp with the idea that maybe we could do something similar at his Chick-Fil-A.
