Chick-fil-A® trials “Family Style Meals” in Greensboro, N.C., Phoenix and San Antonio

 

Meal kit makes it even more convenient to order takeout; includes Mac & Cheese and Bacon Baked Beans

ATLANTA, 2017-Jul-19 — /EPR Retail News/ — Chick-fil-A® customers in Greensboro, N.C., Phoenix and San Antonio will be the first in the country to test out a new way to share Chick-fil-A meals and a few new side items as the restaurant chain begins testing “Family Style Meals” in three cities today (July 17, 2017) through November 18. 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.

The Family Style Meals serve more than just hungry diners; they also serve a growing demand for takeout options. Thirty-six percent of Chick-fil-A dinner customers take their meal to go from restaurants to eat at home.

“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,” said Matt Abercrombie, manager of menu development at Chick-fil-A. “Mealtime should be an enjoyable experience that brings family and friends together, not an extra stress in the day.”

The Family Style Meals also offers lower calorie options. For example, a meal with Grilled Chicken Breasts, Side Salad and Fruit Cup with two Mini Rolls has less than 300 calories per serving.

In addition to the Family Style Meals, Chick-fil-A is also testing the options of Bacon Baked Beans and Mac & Cheese as individual sides in these three cities. The Bacon Baked Beans are kettle-cooked with bacon and brown sugar for a sweet and savory taste. The Mac & Cheese side is a classic macaroni and cheese recipe featuring a special blend of cheeses including Cheddar, Parmesan and Romano.

The Family Style Meals and new sides will only be available in Greensboro, N.C., Phoenix and San Antonio restaurants during the limited-time test. Customer feedback will help determine if Family Style Meals and the two new individual sides will be added to menus nationwide.

ATLANTA, Ga., 2016-Aug-31 — /EPR Retail News/ — Chick-fil-A customers in the states of New York and New Jersey, and cities of San Diego, Columbia, SC, and Washington, DC will be the first to taste three new breakfast items this fall[1]. In an effort to offer both classic customer favorites, and breakfast options with new flavors, Chick-fil-A® is testing a new Hash Brown Scramble – that can be served in either a bowl or as a burrito-  and an Egg White Grill Bowl. The same restaurants will also test a new Berry Protein Blend breakfast beverage. The new breakfast items will be available at participating restaurants during breakfast hours.

The Hash Brown Scramble is a hearty breakfast option served as a burrito or in a bowl. The Scramble includes crispy Chick-fil-A Hash Browns, scrambled eggs, a Monterey Jack cheddar cheese blend and a choice of sliced Chick-fil-A Nuggets or sausage. It is served with Jalapeño Salsa. The Hash Brown Scramble Bowl has 450 calories and 30 grams of protein.  The Hash Brown Scramble Burrito contains 650 calories and 31 grams of protein.

The Egg White Grill Bowl is a new protein-packed breakfast entrée that’s also low in calories, making it a great choice for health-conscious guests. Inspired by Chick-fil-A’s new Egg White Grill breakfast sandwich that rolled out in July, the Egg White Grill Bowl contains freshly scrambled egg whites, a Monterey Jack cheddar cheese blend and sliced grilled chicken. It is also served with Jalapeño Salsa. The Egg White Grill Bowl has 180 calories and packs in 29 grams of protein.

A great option for customers on-the-go, the new Berry Protein Blend is a substantial breakfast beverage made with chia seeds, ancient grains, mixed berries and yogurt. It’s handspun with a small portion of Chick-fil-A’s signature Icedream® and topped with Honey Brown Sugar Granola for an extra crunch. The Berry Protein Blend beverage has 340 calories and 23 grams of protein.

“More people are eating breakfast away from home, and we want to meet the needs of our guests by providing breakfast options that span a variety of nutritional needs, tastes and ingredients,” said Matt Abercrombie, senior consultant of menu development. “In addition to our classic breakfast offerings our customers know and love like our Chick-fil-A Chicken Biscuit or Chick-n-Minis, we’re excited to offer three new breakfast items for our customers to try and help us determine whether or not we launch them nationwide.”

In addition to the menu items that Chick-fil-A is testing in select markets, customers will also be able to order the Chicken Egg & Cheese breakfast sandwich on the newly added English muffin.

The new breakfast items will only be available in participating restaurants during the limited-time test. Chick-fil-A will evaluate customer feedback following test to determine if the new menu items will rollout nationwide in the future.
