The long Memorial Day weekend just got a little bit better for Cherry Hill residents. They'll have a new Chick-fil-A waiting for them on the other side. 

The fast food restaurant announced Thursday that its next Cherry Hill location, 1749 Marlton Pike East, will officially open its doors on May 31. 

The 4,840-square-foot location will feature free wi-fi, a two-story interactive indoor play area for children, a counter for Chick-fil-A One mobile pickup and a 125-seat dining room with additional outdoor patio seating for 20.

At the opening event next Thursday, the first 100 eligible customers (those living within certain ZIP codes) will have an opportunity to participate in Chick-fil-A's First 100 Road Trip. Morning people willing to show up at 6 a.m. will have the best shots. 

"Designed to be an impactful experience on many levels, the First 100 Road Trip will take participants around the Cherry Hill area on a chartered bus while spending approximately six hours being engaged in activities that will provide opportunities to get up and move as well as inspire civic pride and gratitude," the company said in a news release. 

Those who participate will return to the restaurant around 4 p.m. and receive a digital offer card loaded with a one-year supply of free Chick-fil-A meals, each consisting of a chicken sandwich, medium waffle potato fries, and a medium beverage. 

The new location will become the third in the general area of Cherry Hill and is expected to employ more than 100 people.
