Chick-fil-A Opens First-Ever Mobile Pickup Restaurant In New York City

Dubbed Chick-fil-A 79th & 2nd, the new establishment caters exclusively to delivery and mobile app orders, promising New Yorkers a seamless and expedited pickup encounter. Operating without a traditional dining area, the focus will be on efficiency and convenience without compromising Chick-fil-A’s renowned hospitality.

So, how will it work?

Fans conveniently place their orders for delivery or carryout via the Chick-fil-A App or online platform. Utilizing geofencing technology, the restaurant is notified when customers are en route, ensuring orders are promptly prepared to synchronize with their arrival. Inside, real-time status boards update guests and delivery drivers on the readiness of their orders, facilitating a smooth and efficient process.

Nestled in the vibrant Upper East Side neighborhood, Chick-fil-A 79th & 2nd is spearheaded by local Owner-Operator Jared Caldwell, known for his exemplary service at the nearby Chick-fil-A restaurant on Third Avenue and 86th Street. Caldwell’s selection underscores Chick-fil-A’s commitment to meeting the evolving demands of customers through strategic innovation.

This pioneering endeavor reflects Chick-fil-A’s dedication to enhancing the guest experience while staying true to its core values. Nathaniel Cates, Sr. Principal Design Lead for Chick-fil-A, Inc., emphasizes the importance of evolving in a uniquely Chick-fil-A manner, ensuring that the company meets the changing needs of its customers while maintaining its hallmark service and care.

As part of Chick-fil-A’s ethos of community engagement, Chick-fil-A 79th & 2nd honors local heroes in the Upper East Side area by providing them with complimentary Chick-fil-A entrées for a year. Additionally, the restaurant participates in the Chick-fil-A Shared Table program, contributing surplus food to support local soup kitchens, shelters, food banks, and nonprofits.

With its focus on convenience, efficiency, and community involvement, Chick-fil-A’s pioneering venture into mobile pickup in the heart of NYC promises to revolutionize the fast-food landscape.
