Atlanta-based Chick-fil-A is gearing up to launch a new delivery service called “Little Blue Kitchen.”
In a permit filed on August 3 with the City of Atlanta, the company described a project for a new Chick-fil-A kitchen at 2115 Faulkner Road, as well as for interior renovations for eight commercial kitchens.
In total, the estimated renovations are looking to cost upward of $600,000 and the permit is asking for 10,000 square feet of space to work with.
Chick-fil-A first announced plans for Little Blue Kitchen in May, but the permit filing signals the first public move in making the concept a reality.
“At Chick-fil-A, we’re constantly challenging ourselves to ensure we’re meeting our customers where they are,” the company wrote in an announcement earlier this year. “That’s why we’re stepping outside of the box to pilot a new concept focused on variety, delivery, and innovation later this year in Nashville and in 2022 in Atlanta.”
This new delivery kitchen concept is named Little Blue Menu after the company’s founder S. Truett Cathy’s original “blue” menu at the Hapeville Dwarf House.
The company, which now has almost 2,700 locations, started out as a diner called the “Dwarf Grill” in 1946 in Hapeville. The founder, S. Truett Cathy, opened the diner with his brother, Ben. The first official Chick-fil-A opened up in 1967 in Atlanta’s Greenbriar Shopping Center.
After that, according to the website, the company “has the highest same-store sales and is the largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the United States based on annual system-wide sales.”
Nowadays, the only mainland state you can’t find a Chick-fil-A in is Vermont.
While they may be missing out on some of the best chicken in the world, we’ll remain content with this new delivery service, which includes new items like wings and roasted chicken.
