Chick-fil-A To Sell Home Meal Kits At 150 Restaurants

Chick-fil-A, the Georgia-based chicken fast food restaurant chain, Monday announced it will start selling "Mealtime Kits" at 150 restaurants.

Chick-fil-A said it will sell its own line of fresh prepared meals at 150 restaurants in and around its headquarters in Atlanta starting August 27. These kits contain pre-measured ingredients and can be picked up from the drive-thru, front counter or ordered through the Chick-fil-A One app.

"Chick-fil-A Chef and Atlanta Restauranteur Stuart Tracy helped develop five different kit recipes, which are easy to follow, simple to make and include the quality Chick-fil-A chicken used in the brand's famous chicken," the company said in a statement.

Chick-fil-A said the customer feedback on the test will help the restaurant company decide whether to roll out the concept nationwide.

"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.

During the test period, Chick-fil-A will rotate five meal kit recipes: Chicken Parmesan, Chicken Enchiladas, Dijon Chicken, Pan Roasted Chicken and Chicken Flatbread. The restaurants will offer two recipes at a given time, with each kit to cost $15.89 and will serve two people. The limited-time test offer will be available until November 17.
