Augusta Chick-fil-A runs out of food, closes early

One Augusta Chick-fil-A restaurant had to close Wednesday when it ran out of food.

“Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” resulted in a surge of customers so large that the restaurant on Robert C. Daniel Parkway sold everything it had and closed two hours early.

According to a manager there, the branch, which normally stays open until 10 p.m. had to shut its doors at 8, and its employees stood in the parking lot, turning customers away.

The restaurant on Washington Road didn’t have to close, but when the manager was asked to comment on the day’s business at 9 p.m., he said the lines were still too long for him to stop and talk.
