For the next three Thursday mornings, Chick-fil-A customers who say, "The early bird gets the chicken" will be rewarded with a free breakfast meal.
The magic words have to be uttered between the hours of 6:30 and 10:30 a.m., according to a statement from the company.
The Eastpoint Mall franchise is participating in the giveaway scheduled for the mornings of Jan. 24 and 31 and Feb. 7.
Free meal choices will vary by restaurant, but could include the chain's chicken or spicy chicken biscuit; Chick-n-Minis; sausage, egg and cheese biscuit; bacon, egg and cheese biscuit; or the chicken or sausage breakfast burrito, according to the statement.
No purchase is necessary to take advantage of the free breakfast. Customers are limited to one free item per day, and must be present to receive the meal.
Other Baltimore-area restaurants participating in the promotional offer are listed on the company's website.
