Chick-fil-A Is About to Make Picking Up Dinner Easy and Delicious
Chick-fil-A is on a mission to make family meals a breeze—and a delicious one at that. According to a release, the company is testing a new meal kit concept to "help make parents' lives easier and increase quality time around the dinner table." Family Style Meals serve four, and are currently being tested in Greensboro, North Carolina., Phoenix and San Antonio through November 18, 2017.
The Family Style Meals, which start at $29.99, are the chain's response to growing demand for takeout options. In fact, a recent survey showed that 36% 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," Matt Abercrombie, Chick-fil-A's manager of menu said in a statement. "Mealtime should be an enjoyable experience that brings family and friends together, not an extra stress in the day."
The kits were created with input from parents, and 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. Voila! Dinner is served. How easy is that?

Family Style Meals have three entree choices: chicken breasts (four pieces), Chick-fil-A nuggets (30 pieces), or grilled chicken breasts (four pieces). Customers can then round out their meal with two of the following sides: bacon baked beans, a fruit cup, mac & cheese, side salad and the superfood side.
Customer feedback will help determine if Family Style Meals will be added to Chick-fil-A menus nationwide, so give them a try and tell them what you think.
