In October 2003, Chick-fil-A Operator Bruce Ploeser and his team were preparing to open the first free-standing Chick-fil-A in the Phoenix area. The Goodyear, Arizona, grand opening was significant, marking one of the first restaurants in Chick-fil-A’s West Coast expansion. Yet 15 years later, the opening would prove to have far greater significance than his team could have imagined: it was the site of the first-ever Chick-fil-A First 100® Campout.
Chick-fil-A® customers in Greensboro, N.C., Phoenix and San Antonio will be the first in the country to test out a new way to share Chick-fil-A meals and a few new side items as the restaurant chain begins testing “Family Style Meals” in three cities today through November 18. The Family Style Meals include one entrée, two sides and eight mini rolls to serve four people, with the option to add additional entrees, shareable sides and beverages. Plates, utensils and condiments are also included.
