It’s a sweet summertime dilemma: You’ve been tasked to make dessert for the next potluck barbecue, but you don’t want to bring the same-old. Why not try something new and refreshing that kids and adults will like? Cue the slushy. Slushies date back to the 1950s when a soda fountain broke down in a popular Kansas ice cream shop.

But sipping this beverage out of a straw isn’t the only way to savor this seasonal treat.
As seasons change, so can our lunch orders. When the weather heats up, you might be thinking about swapping out your hot-off-the-grill Chick-fil-A favorite for something a little… cooler. The good news is we have just the thing – the Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap®.

His first task was straightforward: keep the kitchen in tip-top shape so the restaurant could serve its more than 1,300 daily customers with ease (his co-workers affectionately call him “Captain America Cleaner”). But when Knottek’s manager asked him stop what he was doing so he could show him something in the back, he knew something was up.
