Krystal lovers line up for opening in Gulfport

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport's newest fast food restaurant, Krystal, opened its doors Monday to hungry customers. Some even camped out in the Highway 49 parking lot for a chance to win free food for a year.

Krystal had several coast locations before Hurricane Katrina, but those closed after the storm. The new Gulfport location is at 12045 Hwy 49, in front of K-mart.

Customers were allowed to line up 24 hours before the doors opened at 6am Monday morning. According to Facebook, those first 50, winning customers were already in line by about 7pm Sunday night.
