NORWALK -

A popular fast-food restaurant has made its way to Norwalk.

Dozens of people camped outside the new Chick-fil-A restaurant on Connecticut Avenue for its grand opening Thursday morning and a chance to receive a year's supply of food.

Chick-fil-A originated in the south in the 1960s and since then has expanded to the west and northeast, including a few locations in Connecticut. This is the first location in Norwalk.

According to officials, the restaurant will bring 110 jobs to the community.
