Chick-fil-a will be testing a totally new concept in the quick service industry. At 150 storefronts in Atlanta, the chain restaurant will roll out Mealtime Kits. These prepared kits will allow customers to cook up meals at home made with the famous Chick-fil-a chicken.
From August 27 to November 17, Atlanta residents will be able to pick up fresh, pre-measured ingredients in the drive-thru. They will be able to pick up at the front counter or via the Chick-fil-A One app, as well. Then, customers can head home to fire up their kitchen’s stove or oven. After just a few minutes, these lucky Atlanta customers can enjoy a freshly prepared Chick-fil-a meal on their dining table.
“We know our guests are busier than ever and need a variety of convenient dinner options. We’re excited to offer Mealtime Kits as a new way for us to serve our guests by providing fresh ingredients to enjoy a delicious meal at home.” said Michael Patrick, an innovation program lead at Chick-fil-A who is leading the Mealtime Kits effort.
Chick-fil-A chef and Atlanta restaurateur Stuart Tracy helped develop five different kit recipes. These recipes will include Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Enchiladas, Dijon Chicken, Pan Roasted Chicken and Chicken Flatbread.
According to The Chicken Wire, the prepped recipes are easy to follow, simple to make and include the quality Chick-fil-A chicken used in the brand’s chicken sandwiches. Each Mealtime Kit serves two people and costs $15.89. Also, each kit has a “use-by” date, so they can be refrigerated at home for several days.
While Atlanta customers are the lucky ones for now, customers nationwide can express their interest in trying the kits by filling out an online form. And if you’re one of the Georgians who can try the Mealtime Kits now, be sure to give your feedback. Customer comments on the test will help the restaurant company decide whether to roll out the concept nationwide. Give the rest of us a chance to try this!
