Not only is Chick-fil-A one of the godliest companies in the nation, they’re also one of the best-loved fast food restaurants, too.
Which leaves customers frustrated when they are itching for a chicken sandwich on Sunday and have to be reminded the hard way that Chick-fil-A always closes on Sunday to make sure their employees don’t have to work on the Lord’s Day.
Well, what if with a little bit of planning ahead, you could have Chick-fil-A right at home on Sunday…or any other day of the week?
Chick-fil-A is, quite brilliantly in my humble opinion, will soon be the first fast food restaurant to launch their own meal kits, jumping on board a trend that has been popularized by online subscription services like Blue Apron.
CBN News has the story:
Starting in late August, Chick-fil-A will become the first quick-service eatery to compete in the meal kit market with a new product called Mealtime Kits, according to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Customers at 150 participating restaurants in and around Atlanta will be able to order the kits at the drive-thru, at the counter, and via the Chick-fil-A app.
Here are the options, which will be on rotation from August 27 until Nov. 17:
- Chicken Parmesan
- Pan-roasted chicken
- Chicken enchiladas
- Dijon chicken
- Chicken flatbread
The Mealtime Kits, which will cost $15.89, serve two and require no additional ingredients, apart from cooking oil.
“We designed our offering so our guests don’t have to order ahead, subscribe to a service, or make an extra stop at the grocery store,” Michael Patrick, an innovation program lead for the Atlanta-based chain, said in a statement.
Each kit, packaged in entirely recyclable, compostable boxes that don’t include plastic bags or insulated foam, is marked with a “use-by” date and can be preserved for seven days.
The recipes were developed by chef Stuart Tracy, who joined Chick-fil-A last fall after leaving his post at a fine dining restaurant in Atlanta.
It sounds like they’re just testing it out at first to see how it goes, but they do want to hear from customers who want to see the meal kits in their local Chick-fil-A!
