Free food for a year


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Burgers are an All-American favorite. But would you wait overnight just for a chance to get some for free? Hardee’s fans would...and they did!

To celebrate their newly remodeled restaurant, the Hardee’s on College Road in Wilmington gave away free Thickburgers for a year to the first 107 customers in the door at 5:00am Saturday morning.

Despite the nasty weather, Hardee’s was full of people like AJ Levine, who said the reason for his determination is simple. "Two words: free Thickburgers. You say free food, I came a running. I've been out here for a while; been out here since about 1:00am or 1:30am, but I'm pretty sure for free Thickburgers for a year, it's well worth the wait."

107 people now have 52 gift cards, good for one Thickburger a piece. But even those who slept in a little late and missed out on the freebies said Thickburgers are worth the price and the calories.
