Chick-fil-A rolls out mac and cheese to menus nationwide
August 13, 2019
“Eat mor chikin” — how about “Eat mor mac & cheese” instead?
Chick-fil-A rolled out the creamy side nationwide to menus Monday, the Atlanta-based food chain announced.
The pasta dish will have a blend of cheeses including cheddar, Parmesan and Romano, and will be baked in restaurants each day, the company said.
Mac & cheese is the first permanent side addition to hit the menus since 2016, and is available as a side option with lunch or dinner, a kid’s meal, or in catering orders.
The new addition underwent a test run in five markets, including Baltimore, Greensboro, N.C., Houston, Nashville, and Phoenix before rolling out nationwide, a spokesperson for Chick-fil-A told the Daily News.
“We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item,” Amanda Norris, executive director of menu and packaging, said in a statement, “but the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy.”
In addition to the cheesy pasta, frosted caramel coffee is also available at participating restaurants for a limited time, until Nov. 9 or while supplies last. The new drink is a blend of cold brew coffee, caramel syrup and vanilla Icedream — Chick-fil-A’s frozen dairy dessert.
