The Atlanta based Chick-fil-A is trying to impose a greater threat to its competition by offering something that it has never offered before… family style
Through November 18th the privately held, quick serve restaurant chain will begin testing family style meals in the three selected cities of: San Antonio, Texas; Greensboro, North Carolina, and Phoenix, Arizona. The Family Style Meals include one entrée, two sides, and eight mini rolls to serve four people, with the option to add additional entrees, shareable sides, and beverages. Plates, utensils, and condiments are also included.
Entrée options include: Chick-n-Strips™ (12-count); Original Chick-fil-A Chicken Breasts (4-count); Chick-fil-A Nuggets (30-count) and Grilled Chicken Breasts (4-count).
Side options include: Bacon Baked Beans, Fruit Cup, Mac & Cheese, Side Salad and the Superfood Side. The Family Style Meal starts at $29.99.
Chick-fil-A’s manager of menu development, Matt Abercrombie, said in a press release, “our customers told us that they wanted an even more convenient way to share meals at home or on the go, so we worked directly with a group of parents to design every part of Family Style Meals – down to the cutlery caddy that features five unique conversation starter questions to help customers connect over mealtime.”
Chick-fil-A will also be testing new side items in the mentioned three cities as well: Bacon Baked Beans and Mac & Cheese. “Mealtime should be an enjoyable experience that brings family and friends together, not an extra stress in the day,” says Abercrombie.
