Chick-fil-A is venturing into the at-home meal delivery kit business. Yes, you will soon be able to make your very own Chick-fil-A recipes, from the comfort of your own home.
The fast-food chain has announced a program that will allow customers to recreate their signature flavors in their own kitchens. It is the same concept as other meal delivery services like Hello Fresh or Blue Apron except much more delicious!
CHIC-FIL-A MEAL KITS? Chic-fil-A is launching a pilot program for mealtime kits, kinda like a Blue Apron, but not for the clean-eating among us. It's starting in Atlanta. Any takers in Bakersfield? I'm guessing the answer is YES. https://t.co/IDX89vrNeM pic.twitter.com/zHKDxMIKD1— Emma Goss (@EmmaAudreyGoss) July 23, 2018
Each box will come with specific recipes that customers will have to follow, as well as all the ingredients needed to make the meal. The boxes will contain enough food to feed two people and will only cost $15.89 per box, which is pretty darn cheap, even cheaper than going out to eat at Chick-fil-A.
There is one significant difference between the fast food meal kits and other home delivery services. Chick-fil-A's boxes cannot be ordered online. Anyone who wants to try it out has to live in Atlanta.
@Kimzolciak we need you and Bloom to try the Chic fil A meal kits (only in Atlanta🤢) and let us know how they are!! 🐥— heidi price (@christel_heidi) July 23, 2018
The company is only rolling them out at the restaurants in A-Town, which currently has around 150 locations. But for those who live elsewhere in the U.S., the company will be taking feedback from customers to determine if the program should be expanded to include at-home chefs nationwide.
Each Chick-fil-A chain in the Atlanta area will begin selling the new meal kits starting August 27th. There will be five different meal kits available for purchase: Crispy Dijon Chicken, Pan Roasted Chicken, Chicken Flatbread, Chicken Enchiladas and Chicken Parmesan. Yum!
Chic-Fil-A to test market meal kit service. No word if you can open them on Sundays. https://t.co/x6Xvuokk9j— Michael A. Levin (@MichaelALevin) July 24, 2018
However, not all five kits will be available at the same time. The company will be rolling out each meal at various times from August 27th- November 17th. Now that doesn't mean the company will stop selling the meal kits in the fall, it is simply their plan to launch the new program with some time sensitivity and organization.
If all goes well with the new Chick-fil-A meal kits, the company is hoping to not only launch them nationwide but release even more options. Those that live in the Atlanta area, check out the kits once they launch next month and give your feedback so the rest of us can try it out! Seriously, what could be better than making Chick-fil-A recipes at home?
