I’ve partnered with Chick-fil-A to create this post! Enjoy!
We’ve been road trippin’ quite a bite lately with the family and I’ll I’ve got to say is our kids have it MADE!!
Remember road trippin’ back in the day? No cell phones or iPads, no in-car video system… We were living large if we had a Walkman with our favorite mix tape!
Don’t even get me started with the in-car meals. Needless to say… Our kids are living large!
Our last road trip a few weeks ago, we up’d our game by using the new Chick-fil-A One app to help us find one of our favorite restaurants and quickly order our meal and get back on the road in record time.
First off, how many times have you been on a road trip or even driving around town and the need for a meal hits critical status? Humor me here, here’s a story problem for you…
Sally and Jim are taking a road trip with their family of 6. It’s time for lunch and Bobby wants 1 slice of pizza, Mike wants 2 orders of chicken nuggets, Suzy wants 1 salad with 0 tomatoes and Andy wants 1 cheese burger and 1 large fry. They spend 15 minutes in line at the Burger Hut, 25 minutes in line at the salad bar, 20 minutes at the Chicken Barn and 15 minutes driving to the Pizza Joint. How many people in Sally and Jim’s car will be happy at the end of the meal selection?
Yep, ever feel that way? I know we have at our house and on our road trips. We spend an exorbitant amount of time trying to decide where to eat and then trying to make everyone happy in the car. It’s a tremendous waste of time and money!
We have discovered a great solution and you may want to try out as well. One restaurant that we all love in our family is Chick-fil-A. For some reason, this is one of the few places that seems to be tops on everyone’s list which is PERFECT for when we are on the road together.
Chick-fil-A has made it even easier with their new Chick-fil-A One app. This app is so cool!! The first really cool feature is that you can use the app to help you find the closest Chick-fil-A. This is perfect for when you are driving through a new town, cruzin’ for some grub and to need to make it quick.
Open your app, click on the location icon and voilá… If there is a Chick-fil-A close by, it will show up on your map AND it will help you navigate to that location, SCORE!! Not only will it help you navigate, it will introduce you to the local manager right there on the app.
Then… Oh just you wait, I’m only getting started! You can actually place your order right in the app. Seriously, how many times have you corralled the whole family into a fast food restaurant and then had the most stressful 10 minutes of your day waiting in line, then trying to get everyone’s order, then find the most cost effective way to place said order only to totally forget what you needed to order when the guy at the register is finally ready for you? You’ve been there too? Yea, I thought so.
Check this out… All you have to do is navigate through the very intuitive menu on the app. Each family member can place their order and customize it just how they would like and BAM, your done! You haven’t even set a foot outside the car yet!
Ok, you’re not really finished. You still have to pay for your meal. This is super slick as well. You can actually preload the app with funds via your Apple Pay on your smartphone. Then you can pay for your meal without leaving the comfort of your car or waiting in the drive-thru line.
Now here’s another one of my favorite features… Once you’ve completed your order they will show you via the app where to pick-up your food inside the restaurant. Walk right on in, bypass the line at the registers and step right up and grab your food that is all ready and waiting for you.
This was PRICELESS on our road trip… It was so convenient and stress free!
Now, the time and stress saved should be gift alone but no, Chick-fil-A actually gives you special treats in the form of free food when you order from the Chick-fil-A One app. Yea, you earn cool stuff THE MORE you use the app. How cool is that?
The next time you’re driving around with the family and the hangries hit. Load-up your Chick-fil-A One app and take care of those hungry mouths to feed in record and stress-free time!6
