(Gainesville, GA.) Every great southerner is aware of the crunchy, juicy golden-flaked chicken advertised by the clever cows at Chick-Fil-A. Due to the October opening of the first store in New York, northerners are also aware of the famed combination. However, it is this national fast-food audience that has brought Chick-Fil-A to its latest milestone. “Superfood Sides” like the Chopped Kale and Broccolini Salad were recently added to the restaurant’s menu in January. This new side takes the place of less healthy choices, such as the coleslaw option which was formerly listed on the menu.
The Atlanta based corporation explained, “The Superfood Side is not something you would expect to see at a fast-food restaurant, and we’re thrilled to kick off 2016 with something that can help people stick to their New Year’s resolution to eat healthfully.”
The salad is said to incorporate sweet and tangy flavors mixed with a maple vinaigrette dressing, accompanied with dried cherries. A serving size small of the salad includes 140 calories and costs $2.59.
“We are always looking for new ways to introduce healthier and all-natural items to our customers, and in partnering with Ford to develop the Superfood Side, we are able to incorporate high-end restaurant flavors and ingredients to our menu,” said David Farmer, vice president of menu strategy and development.
As the eighth largest food chain in the United States, Chick-Fil-A is no stranger to, both, knowing and providing what their customers want most. The recent menu change comes after their 2014 release of the Grilled Chicken Sandwich and Grilled Chicken Nuggets. The addition of the Chopped Kale and Broccolini Salad is just another step in accommodation for all aspects of their national audience.
These new options are now available in all Chick-Fil-A store locations.
