Yakima Carl's Jr. celebrates opening with free meal giveaways

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- People in Yakima still have a chance to win a free meal for every week this year.

The new Carl's Jr. restaurant on First Street is celebrating its opening day by handing out a year's worth of coupons to five customers every hour today.  It's the first Carl's Jr. to open in Yakima. One of the co-owners says the city is the best place in the nation to open a fast food joint.

"So we have the least number of restaurants per capita here in Yakima. I think there's a lot of restaurants here that could use some competition," says Co-owner Paul Jones.

Jones says the restaurant created over 50 new jobs.

You still have a chance to get the free coupons. The giveaways happen every hour until eight tonight.
