MIDLAND - There's no doubt people love their chicken around these parts.

Many brave souls camped out for 24 hours in the freezing temperatures at a chance to be the first 100 people inside the new Midland Chick-Fil-A

Their reward? A sweet, or should we say, savory chance at a years supply of free Chick-Fil-A.

"I just did it to say I did it," "First 100" Winner, Jarren Templeton, said.

For many though, the golden chicken and crispy waffle fries are not enough up against the cold temperatures.

"We're never doing this ever again," Templeton said.

When the doors opened, the "First 100" customers were greeted with cheers.

Number one, and her Mom, number two are seen dancing in.

For these two, this not their first time around the chicken coop.

"I have done six, my mom has done eight," Regular "First 100" Winner, Sarah Obryan, said.

They've even become recognizable to some corporate staff.

We know what your thinking, why? And why Chick-Fil-A?

"My mom to be honest. This is our bonding moment. [We've been] doing this together since my birthday last summer. The foods great and they have great customer service, so it's always a good time," Obryan said.

NewsWest 9 also asked the duo, who braved an even colder grand opening last week in Utah. Is the chicken that good?

"It is. It's worth it," Obryan said.

This mother and daughter also have some advice for anyone looking to get into the hobby.

"Be prepared for anything. I've been in floods and I've been in freezing weather, so you just have to be prepared for anything to come," Obryan said.

Sarah and her Mom did have a first at the new Chick-Fil-A in Midland. It was their first time to be number one and two in line.
