Chick-fil-A, Inc. Key Developments

Chick-fil-A Temporarily Recalls Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Chick-fil-A has temporarily pulled Chocolate Chunk Cookies from all of its restaurants due to the potential presence of undeclared peanuts and a related recall by its supplier, CSM Bakery Solutions. The ingredient and allergen information for the Chocolate Chunk Cookie indicates that the cookie is free of peanuts. When Chick-fil-A learned from its supplier that recent shipments may, in fact, contain traces of peanuts, they decided to stop selling all cookies. Customers who purchased cookies from their restaurants are encouraged to discard them, or may return them to their local Chick-fil-A for a full refund.

Chick-Fil-A Debuts its Second Manhattan Restaurant

Just five months after opening its restaurant in the country in Manhattan, Chick-fil-A has increased its New York City footprint with the opening of a second location in the heart of Midtown at West 46th Street and 6th Avenue. The restaurant is engineered to serve customers on-the-go, with an innovative service design geared to get customers in and out in 6 to 8 minutes in a space that is just 23 feet wide. The restaurant will offer a full menu of fresh, hand-crafted food, featuring several new items that have been recently added to the menu. Its customer service will go hand in hand with the expedited ordering process for guests, during which restaurant team members use tablets to take customer orders in line so meals are ready once guests reach the counter. The opening of Chick-fil-A's first NYC restaurant at West 37th Street and 6th Avenue was met with long lines that continue to wrap around the block at peak hours. Its newest restaurant, located just one block from Times Square and Rockefeller Center and in the central business district in the city, is expected to be met with equal demand. Chick-fil-A at 46th and 6th is locally owned and operated by long-time Chick-fil-A Franchise Owner Al Puglisi and opened at 6:30 a.m. on April 2 with the help of 230 new team members. In the days leading up to the opening, Puglisi and his team surprised unsuspecting New Yorkers at pop-ups around Midtown, giving out free Chick-fil-A to thousands of New Yorkers and surprising 100 participants with free Chick-fil-A for a year. The pop-ups were a twist on Chick-fil-A's well-known First 100 campout, which has given away nearly $25 million in free food to its First 100 patrons over the past 12 years. Chick-fil-A at 46th and 6th will be open Monday through Saturday from 6:30 a.m. until midnight serving a full breakfast menu until 10:30 a.m. Like all Chick-fil-A restaurants, it will be closed on Sunday.

Chick-Fil-A to Open Express Location in Downtown Phoenix at Arizona State University's Campus Center

ASU has more than 11,000 students at its downtown campus. The restaurant will add to the downtown campus' three or four existing restaurants like Subway and Starbucks. Chick-fil-A has 19 Phoenix area locations including ones at ASU's Tempe campus, which is also an express location, and Grand Canyon University.
