We are implementing contactless meal delivery for food served through our drive-thru, carry-out and curbside. Additionally, we are instituting contactless procedures and other measures with our delivery partners to minimize potential spread.
How does Chick-fil-A make sure Restaurant employees are healthy when working? Our local restaurant Operators are following CDC guidance on how and when to exclude Team Members that are diagnosed, sick or exposed. Operators are monitoring their Team Members for symptoms and anyone who displays symptoms is asked to stay home and not return based on CDC guidance.
We are making thermometers available to our Operators for Team Members to be able to check their temperature before entering the restaurant. While coronavirus is not foodborne, actions we have taken over the past several years to go above-and-beyond FDA food safety requirements have helped us prepare for this type of scenario. For example, an advanced food safety measure we began rolling out this year helps to ensure only healthy Team Members are working in Chick-fil-A restaurants.
When clocking in for their shift, Team Members are prompted to review a list of symptoms, including those of COVID, and are advised to go home if they have symptoms or displayed any symptoms in the past 24 hours. Our Operators and their Team Members are the heartbeat of Chick-fil-A and we want to assist them, how we can, in this season.
Chick-fil-A is committed to giving back to the communities in which we serve at both the corporate and local level. How do I place an order on my app to do curbside pick-up?
At most Chick-fil-A Restaurants, including many mall locations, Guests can pick up their meals using our curbside option. How do I place an order on my app to pick up in the drive-thru? After entering their order and preferred payment method, Guests will drive to the restaurant and enter the drive-thru line. The Guest will then alert a Team Member, either in-person or through the speaker box, that they have already placed their order.
Their order will be served to them in the drive-thru line or at the drive-thru window using contactless meal delivery practices. How do I place a delivery order? What extra precautions are being taken for my Chick-fil-A delivery orders? We are taking extra precautions in our restaurants and with our delivery orders, including: In our restaurants, all actions and processes are in accordance to or exceed CDC guidelines for increased handwashing, disinfectant and cleaning procedures.
We proactively closed our restaurant dining rooms nationwide the week of March 16 to limit person-to-person contact. Our restaurants utilize three different types of cleaners that are on the EPA list of antimicrobial products for use against COVID, which are used multiple times per day. While there has been recent news coverage of a potential chicken supply shortage in the U.

After shutting down for several weeks due to the COVID pandemic, restaurants and businesses across the country are now starting to reopen. However, eating at fast-food chains, along with most eateries, will likely look quite different in the coming months.
On Friday, Chick-fil-A released new guidelines and recommendations franchisees should follow as they reopen their dining rooms to customers. It's against health codes for them to refill your used cup anyways in most states. Trending News. Autopsy confirms Naya Rivera's cause of death. Fast food was still a new thing and customers weren't used to the self-service most chains have now.
Seems to me the PEOPLE have changed; and what was a popular thing in the 50's is now one of the many "vintage feels" people enjoy from the restaurant. Another reason is that it's one more opportunity for the customer to come up to the counter and get a smile and a "my pleasure. We could add one to that list. At our Chick-Fil-A, we had someone come through the drive thru and get their order, then drive all the way back through the drive-thru just to ask for a refill on the drink they just bought.
Or when people would say thank you to everything just to hear the "my pleasure" response every time. I used to work at CFA and I loved every minute of it and this is all true!
I also hate it when people come to my job and order a "Frappe". And no I do not work at Starbucks. I love it when you tell someone that you can only take three orders in the drive thru so when they get to the window they try to add one or two more to it. The being greedy part is wrong, you do need quite a lot of sauces for a 12 count nugget meal, I use the CFA sauce on my fries and nuggets, and you nazi employees give me ONE CFA sauce for 12 nuggets, like that's gonna do anyone any good, No, just no, and I'm not buying CFA sauce when every time I go to Chi-Fil-A I ask for 5 sauces, and they just give it to me without question, have been for years.
Try not to skimp on the sauce like nazi's, how about that? But if you get to the point where you are asking for bags full of sauce then yes, we are going to have to tell you that we have sauce available for purchase. Dylan, it's the same way at our store. Brandon, stop being a dick. Having worked at chick-fil-a I can tell you that the person who orders a 12 count nugget meal and then asks for 5 sauces is not the greedy customer. The customer who orders a 4 count nugget kids meal with FRUIT instead of fries and then asks for 5 sauces is greedy.
Chick-fil-a has to be aware of how much sauce we are giving away because the stuff isn't free, we have to pay for it in food cost somewhere and unlike places like Mcdonalds we will not charge you for one extra packet of sauce, we wont charge you for 3 extra packets, however if you want 8 or more for one meal then I will have to charge you a dollar for our 8 ounce container. Now for the large meal you should need only 4, maybe 5 for the large strips meal, and that's it!
You made the choice to work at a fast food restaurant. These are problems you will find at any fast food restaurant like CFA. Deal with it. I am sure she isn't the only one to ever complain about her job. Everyone does it. That's how we "Deal with it. I was a crew leader at Wendys for 2 years, it's called Dealing with the customer.
When you go off like this in a public forum you simply make yourself look like an Elitist smuck. Yes, there are people who show up at close and don't seem to get the hint when the entire crew is sitting on the counter watching them socialize an hour later that they are waiting on the people to leave so they can clean the dining room and go home But those customers where fairly rare usually large after church groups after church on weeknights As for sauce, I agree with most the people above - their packets are not well shaped for dipping and if you're dipping Fries as well chances are you need 2 to 4 packets per "meal" As for the rants on answering questions and phrasing orders, I could go on a massive tirade on how many "uneducated and obnoxious" people who interrupted me when I say I want a Number XYZ meal with I have 2 hands, and I have to get back into an office which will require 2 badge swipe doors and a keyed office door Forgetting where you are?
You start to view your customers as disposable and you won't be in business long. I quit going to Chic-Fil-A long before the political BS simply because the Cost was not worth dealing with the crowd and quality of food. I'm perfectly happy with that. This article reinforces the building view that chic-fil-a is somehow elitist and not for the average person, which in turn limits your market. If you're not willing to deal with the customer, someone else is.
I recommend listening to "This is water" by David Foster Wallace. I love 9, because clearly moms of 12 children are superb at planning ahead I worked at Chick-fil-A for four years from , and this is most definitely spot on and hilariously accurate. You actually got all of the Polynesian sauce variants listed except for my favorite one - Paraplegic Sauce. Not even kidding. If I were to add another point to this post, we used to have customers that would come at the end of the night, while we still had a line in the drive thru and had already put out the cones to block it, and they would just move the cones somewhere to be able to get into line even though they obviously didn't make it before closing time.
Then they would act all stupid when asked what happened to the cones that were here, "Uhh, what cones? I'm fine with treating people very polite like we are trained to do, but it's pretty difficult when there are so many ignorant customers like that. Actually when you get people who seem to be PROUD to support that one man's views and make it a political statement, that just makes you less inclined to support the organization as a whole.
At the CFA I worked at years ago, we would have to go outside and take orders during the lunch rush. I don't know how many times I almost was hit by someone on the phone or turned around talking to kids.
Hello this is a parking lot pay attention. Or the people that wouldn't roll their window down to talk to me so I would have to walk beside their car until we got to the box! Yes I am standing here beside you for no freaking reason. I worked at Chick Fil A, and I still eat there. This post is in bad taste.
You shouldn't try to speak for all drive thru employees or really any of them besides yourself. People eat at Chick Fil A because they set a standard of friendliness and care for there customers. This is the kind of thing that discourages people and makes them not want to go to a restaurant, not correct their drive thru habits. They are the customer, the only reason you have a job. I'm pretty sure its been a while since she worked there. Also, why would anyone enjoy fast food work? Definitely don't go to McDonalds, I was at that hellhole for a year and it's terrible.
As the title says "confessions of a chickfila employee". As well as "to keep team members from hating you". I worked there, most of these are spot on. She never said every team member ever agrees but if you don't, I doubt you ever worked there. I worked there for 2 years and absolutely disagree!
These are all things I've seen and honestly none of them bother me, sure I giggled like a little girl sometimes at people's requests, but get upset? Sure, they could be annoying and obviously this person never should have been in the food-service industry much less hired by CFA. Thank you Davon Branch. My husband and I love Chick- Fil -A. I try my best to be a thoughtful guest.
I am polite to servers and clean my table as best I can before I leave, to save an employee some work. Some of the things you mention may have reasons you are not thinking of. For example, some of your customers are hard of hearing, they answer the best they can based on what they heard. Many customers have been told through advertising of other restaurants that special orders are no problem. We don't mean to be troublesome.
If we ask for something that is not possible, just say no, politely. Now when I go to CFA, I will wonder if the employee's are talking about me or making fun of me behind my back. I feel less inclined to go to CFA now than before I read this post because I'll always wonder if " it's my pleasure" is genuine. Its a good thing you don't currently work there bc this would def be in bad taste.
I disagree with 2. It does not at all exemplify 2nd mile service that CFA teaches. Sure its inconvenient, but going that second mile will wow the customer and keep them coming back. The only complaint I have is with 7. If you choose at 10, then you serve the public until If people coming in at is a problem then you need to close at The closing time of the restaurant is not the time the employees clock out. Big groups of people should not come in at I won't go to a store 5 minuted before close.
It's just a curtious thing to do. Since this is supposed to be about the "drive-thru," the "don't come in at " is irrelevant to the topic. Unfortunately, they like to hang around and prevent employees from accomplishing their closing tasks. Im pro "kicking people out" at if they decide to linger. I was talking about the drive through. Even if I was the point of people coming to a business for service during normal hours, it still is a valid point.
But, I'm not even talking about people coming in the lobby at closing. I'm talking about strolling through at to the drive through. I don't care about when the lobby closes. If I show up at the drive through or lobby when it's open, I would expect to get service. If management is to blame for the employees being rushed out asap, then that's between management and the employee.
It's not the customer's problem. I've worked at chick-fil-a for multiple years now and we have never turned anyone way if the came in a minute before closing. We understand that they customers are the source of our paycheck and we will do ANYTHING in our power to ensure they have a satisfactory experience and want to come back. Also my boss would be livid if we closed right at 10, we actually have a 5 minute grace period for customers who might come in a bit late.
It is true that later customers might mean that the employees leave a few minutes later but we are also still making money if we serve the late night customers. How dare someone come to the restaurant near 10pm And no I don't "want anything else with that" Or 2 I'll have my payment ready When you tell me it at the speaker box!
I used to work at a cfa as well, and the drive through was MY zone. My most hated experiences were people who ordered too much food and caused a ten-minute, unnecessary jam, and people whose windows didn't work so they had to pass the money to someone in the back seat usually dropping half of it in the process , or the would PARK AND GET OUT. If you're going to park you may as well walk inside.
I also once had a guy get angry at me for asking him to turn his truck of so I could hear him over the obnoxious noise. Insecure is one of my favorite shows ever. It really encapsulates what it's like being a Black something, trying to navigate the many ups and downs of life.
