The Chick-fil-A Cowz tell you to "Eat Mor Chikin", but it turns out that the Chick-fil-A's top-selling item isn't even chicken.
Can you guess what it is?
Chick-fil-A's Waffle Potato Fries were the top-selling item on their menu in 2018.
“Our most popular menu item, the waffle fry is arguably the tastiest way to eat a tater. There’s no doubt that the Waffle Fries seem to be the perfect side for just about anything else on the lunch and dinner menu. Cooked with canola oil and sea salt, put simply, they are pure perfection!” Chick-fil-A wrote in a press release.
The Waffle Potato Fries are the most popular item simply because they are the default side with any meal, even the non-chicken menu items.
Because they are the default side, they are bound to be the top-selling menu item, and will likely continue to be.
Though the fries took first place, rest assured, chicken did fall on Chick-fil-A’s bestselling items of 2018 – accounting for five of the top ten items.
In a list of the most popular items of the last year, according to the company's press release, the Spicy Deluxe Sandwich came in at 10, Chicken Biscuit was 9, Chick-n-Strips were 8, Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich was 4 and Chicken Nuggets made the list as the highest chicken product at 3.
Chick-fil-A is projected to be the 3rd-largest fast-food chain in the United States in terms of sales, behind only McDonald’s and Starbucks.
