Growing up, Chick-fil-A Chef Christy Cook found her cooking inspiration in many places ¾in her backyard, where she gathered colorful ingredients to make mud pies for her mom and grandma to “enjoy;” and in her playroom, where she used a small oven to toast bread, watching alongside her mom as the butter melted.
Get ready for something spicy! We brought the heat to the menu over the last year in Philadelphia, Central Texas, South Texas and Phoenix when we started testing Spicy Chick-n-Strips – a combination of two customer favorites, the original Chick-fil-A Chick-n-Strips and the Spicy Chick-fil-A Chicken Sandwich.
Every holiday season, one local restaurant in Tampa Bay becomes much more than a dinner destination. In fact, it becomes a full-fledged winter wonderland, proving that temperature is no match for a dedicated Chick-fil-A Operator’s holiday spirit and a couple billion artificial snow flakes. For visitors to the area who are just passing through, the restaurant’s display is a roadside marvel. For those who call Tampa home, visiting the wonderland that is Chick-fil-A Waters Avenue is a family tradition.
Is Chick-fil-A open on New Year’s? Good news! If you’re looking to end 2018 with a Nugget tray or ring in 2019 with Waffle Fries, Chick-fil-A will be open for both. On New Year’s Eve, most Chick-fil-A locations will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. On New Year’s Day, most restaurants will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Every year, it’s our pleasure to serve the millions of guests who pass through Chick-fil-A drive-thrus across the nation. We’ve served a lot of chicken and seen a lot of faces – some familiar, some new and some even furry. As another year comes to a close, Chick-fil-A is paying tribute to some of the most interesting drive-thru moments over the years.
