If you went to catch the Griz play Idaho and were anywhere near the north end of the Adams Center on Campus drive, you might have scored a touchdown of your own. A free Chicken Sandwich.

Chick-fil-A gave away Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwiches to Montana Griz fans. For some, this was the first time to try the product, for others, let's just say it was their lucky day to score a free treat already waiting for the store to open.

In previous stories, we brought you information about the progress of the building and its Reserve street construction. It must be getting closer to reality if the free taste tests are arriving!

At the tailgate was Jonathan Lovette, the local franchise Operator of Chick-fil-A Missoula. He said:
We’re excited we had an opportunity to preview our great-tasting food with the Missoula community and Grizzly fans at today’s tailgate. We know it only takes one bite to love our food and we can't wait to share more of it with the Missoula community.

Chick-fil-A Missoula is scheduled to open sometime this Winter.  I'm half joking when I say the drive-through line is already forming. The restaurant Missoula plans to hire about 125 full and part-time positions. If you are interested in that, text MISSOULA to 650-459-9229 to apply.  After the Griz tailgate, the Mobile Kitchen hit the road to Billings where another Montana store is planned.
