RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - Chick-fil-A has opened ts second Reno-area restaurant, this one in Sparks.

The restaurant across from the Outlets at Legends opened Thursday, Feb. 1. To celebrate, the restaurant hosted a 'First 100' event, where the first 100 customers in line received 'free Chick-fil-A for a year'. People camped at the Chick-fil-A parking lot for 24 hours.
