First 100 customers at Norma’s Frisco will score free chicken fried steak for a year
The newest location opens June 4 at 6 a.m.
FRISCO Norma's Cafe is known for sharing the love. If you liked the old-school diner's generous freebies on Thanksgiving, "National Pie Day," and "National Grilled Cheese Day," get ready for the mother of all giveaways when Norma's newest location opens in Frisco on June 4. The first 100 customers in line at 6 a.m. will receive free chicken fried steak for an entire year.
That's right. With its cherished original location in Oak Cliff and a second off the Tollway, Norma's is poised to move into the 'burbs with a bang. Those who score a coveted coupon will receive the chicken fried steak entree and three sides, redeemable at any Norma's location, free for one year.
So why Frisco? "When Norma's Cafe first decided that we wanted to expand to a third location, we provided a customer survey," said owner Ed Murph. "The survey's goal was to gather our demographics and list possible cities that would be best for a Norma's Cafe. The results of the survey came back, and Frisco was at the top of the list."
The original Norma's Cafe opened in Oak Cliff in 1956 and a second opened off the Dallas North Tollway in 2009. Its newest location will serve the same stick-to-your-ribs soul food and famous Mile-High Cream Pies at Centre of Preston Ridge in Frisco. A special grand opening celebration with the city of Frisco will follow later this summer.
"[Frisco] is very community oriented, just like Norma's Cafe. We can't wait to meet all our new neighbors," Murph said.
Norma's Frisco opens at 6 a.m. on Tuesday, June 4 at 8300 Gaylord Parkway, #19 in Frisco.
