Chick-fil-A, the Southern chicken-sandwich chain that has drawn both controversy and copycats over the years, has finally arrived in New York. The company will open a 5,000-square-foot (465-square-meter), three-level restaurant in Manhattan's Garment District that will be the chain's largest location in the nation.

One of the positive things to come from this pandemic is seeing restaurants get crafty so that they can continue to make money. Over the last two weeks, I’ve seen a few local restaurants in Gastonia advertise “Family Meals” on their social media pages. Brilliant idea!

Now many chain restaurants are doing the same thing. Within the last few days, I’ve seen that Red Lobster, KFC, and Panda Express all have family meal packs. Today I saw that one of my favorite places is offering family meals and I’m excited!

Chick-fil-A has a few options that you can choose from. There’s a nugget family meal, a classic sandwich family meal, and a spicy sandwich meal. All meal comes with your choice of sides and a gallon of tea.  You can also upgrade your meal if you have a large family.

Here’s what you can choose from:

  •  Entrées: You can choose from 30-count Chick-fil-ANuggets, four Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwiches, and four Spicy Chicken Sandwiches.
  •  Sides: You have your choice of four medium Waffle Potato Fries, four medium Mac & Cheeses, or four Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
  •  Drinks: You have the option of ordering one gallon of Freshly-Brewed Iced Tea (sweetened or unsweetened).

Once you place your order, you can pick it up via drive-thru, do curbside pickup, or have the order delivered to your doorstep through DoorDash, Grubhub, UberEats, or Chick-fil-A itself. After I looked at this I thought, I could eat a family meal solo if it’s Chick-fil-A! Yes…I really like their food!  Just another option for families during this crazy time. Get more details here.
