Chick-fil-A announced on Monday that they are going to be entering the meal kit market!
This means when I am craving Chick-Fil-A on a Sunday I can go pick up a meal kit from the fast-food chain and within 30 minutes can be eating a delicious chicken dinner.
There's one catch: At this point, Chick-fil-A will only be testing this in Atlanta...BUT based on customer interest could be expanding to all their stores.
150 restaurants in the Atlanta area will have the "Mealtime Kits" starting in late August.
The kits will feature 5 recipes, including chicken Parmesan, chicken enchiladas, dijon chicken, pan-roasted chicken, and chicken flatbread. Each kit will be made with the famous Chick-fil-A antibiotic-free chicken.
Michael Patrick, Chick-fil-A's innovation lead, said in a statement, "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. They simply pick up a Mealtime Kit at their convenience — for example, when they're already at a Chick-fil-A restaurant grabbing a breakfast or lunch, or in the drive-thru on their way home."
The Mealtime Kits will cost $15.89, serve a maximum of two people, and can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. They can be ordered easily through Chick-Fil-A's mobile app, by ordering from a participating store, or via a drive-thru.
Chick-Fil-A is making headlines as the first fast-food restaurant to launch a subscription delivery service competing with companies like Blue Apron or Home Chef. The difference is, these companies aren't associated with a specific restaurant.
It'll be interesting to see the success of these new "Mealtime Kits" and all the chicken possibilities for my weekends.
