Listen Now: Fast Food At Home
Chick-Fil-A is bringing fast food to your kitchen table.
Beginning in late August the restaurant chain says it will begin selling mealtime kits at one hundred and fifty locations in the Atlanta area. This will make it the first fast food company to offer an at home meal kit service.
Like other services, such as what is offered by Blue Apron, the do-it-yourself meals will include fresh, pre-measured ingredients that you put together in your own kitchen. But unlike the competition, the Chick-Fil-A meals can only be purchased at the drive-thru; inside the restaurant or through the company’s app.
The meal kits for purchase are of course all chicken and include chicken parmesan, chicken enchiladas, and chicken flatbread. Each meal will serve two people, cost just under sixteen dollars and can be made in thirty minutes or less.
A company spokesman says it’s a healthier alternative to fast food and if someone is picking up a meal at chick-fil-aye they can pick this up to make later in the week.
The plan is to save people time, money and maybe even calories.
