New alternatives at Chick-fil-A
So Chick-fil-A is rumored to be adding vegan options to their menu as well as meat substitutes. This is a smart move, considering a large amount of Americans do not eat meat and some just eat strictly vegan.
Amanda Norris, the executive director of Chik-fil-A’s menu, stated during an interview with business insider “a vegetarian option or a vegan option is something we’re looking at, we’re thinking about, and have some research and development. We’ve kind of been watching it, and now we are moving more from the watch stage and getting into that understand, or really imagine stage”. Chick-fil-A does however have to go through 5 stages of development for any new item menu, so this could take some time before the release.
Ultimately, for Chick-fil-A, it comes down to demand. “I think it goes back to how far will our customers want us to go,” said Norris. “We think it is certainly beyond just no meat on salads or no meat in a wrap. It might be some kind of alternative protein on a sandwich,” she continued.
Whether an item is vegan or not, Chick-fil-A always has great tasting food, so I’m pretty sure the new meatless will be just as good.
