Expect a line Saturday, July 6, at the two Federal Donuts locations (1632 Sansom St. and at 1219 S. Second St.), which are giving away 10 Golden Tickets among the Korean fried chicken orders, starting at 11 a.m. 

The tickets entitle bearers to prizes, including T-shirts and coffee beans.

Two tickets will be good for free fried chicken for life - an order a week.

Co-owner Steve Cook said production would be stepped up by about a third for the promotion.
