The stories behind our trusted suppliers
At Chick-fil-A, we know our customers trust us to be responsible and transparent about how we source our ingredients. We don’t take that trust lightly, and that’s why we carefully select each one of our suppliers. We partner only with companies that we can fully depend on to provide the highest-quality ingredients for our menu, and to follow our ingredient standards.
From apples to Broccolini®, we’ve shared the stories of our suppliers here on The Chicken Wire, to give you a behind-the-scenes look at the strong partnerships we’ve built over the years – partnerships that help make the food and drinks you enjoy at our restaurants the absolute best they can be.
The crisp apples in the Chick-fil-A fruit cup served across the West and Southwest United States come from a farm in Washington State’s apple country that produces 1.7 billion apple slices a year.
The partnership between Chick-fil-A and our coffee supplier, THRIVE Farmers Coffee, is a special one, built on putting people over profits and giving customers one of the best cups of joe around.
“We were able to incorporate high-end restaurant flavors and ingredients to our menu,” says Chick-fil-A Vice President of Menu Strategy and Development David Farmer, whose menu team partnered with acclaimed chef and restaurateur, Ford Fry to add Broccolini and kale to the menu.
The first organic offering on the Chick-fil-A menu, our apple juice supplier prides itself on delicious drinks and fair wages for the workers who produce them.
Every Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap served at Chick-fil-A includes a flaxseed flour flatbread that comes from one place: Brooklyn, New York, and a family-owned bakery with quite a history.
Delicious on its own or when combined in another recipe, our iced tea is also one-of-a-kind.
