ATLANTA - Listen up, Atlanta residents -- Chick-fil-A needs YOU to test out a new concept for its brand.
Starting August 27, the fast-food chain will launch Mealtime Kits at 150 restaurants across the Atlanta area. The kits are designed to make it easy for customers to cook their own meals at home using fresh, pre-measured ingredients that can be picked up in the drive-thru, at the front counter or on the Chick-fil-A One app.
Five different kit recipes will be included in the trial. They are considered easy to follow and include the Chick-fil-A chicken used in the brand's famous chicken.
The recipes include Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Enchiladas, Dijon Chicken, Pan Roasted Chicken and Chicken Flatbread. Each kit serves two people and costs $15.89.
Mealtime Kits will be available to customers in Atlanta until November 17.
“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. “We designed our offering so our guests don’t have to order ahead, subscribe to a service, or make an extra stop at the grocery store. They simply pick up a Mealtime Kit at one of our restaurants at their convenience – for example, when they’re already at a Chick-fil-A restaurant grabbing breakfast or lunch, or in the drive-thru on their way home.”
According to Chick-fil-A, the kits each have a "use-by" date, and they can be refrigerated at home for several days, depending on when they are purchased.
If you're not from Atlanta, customers nationwide can express their interest in trying the kits by filling out an online form.
