Chick-fil-A just rolled out a new side dish to menus nationwide. The chicken chain announced on Monday (Aug. 12) that it is adding mac and cheese as a permanent fixture to menus across the U.S.
The new Mac & Cheese – the first permanent side addition to the menu since 2016 – is a classic macaroni and cheese recipe, featuring a special blend of cheeses including cheddar, parmesan and Romano. It is baked in restaurant each day.
“Mac & Cheese is the quintessential comfort food, and something we are so excited to offer our guests at Chick-fil-A. We think it’s the perfect pairing with our Original Chicken Sandwich, nuggets and our grilled chicken offerings, but it’s also great on its own as a snack,” said Amanda Norris, executive director of menu and packaging. “Mac & Cheese is also available on our catering menu as a quick pick-up for a larger gathering. It has a delicious, homemade taste!”
Mac & Cheese was tested in five markets and passed with flying colors.
“We have a very high bar when it comes to adding a menu item,” Norris said. “But the feedback from our customers in the test markets made this decision easy. I am excited it will be available for all of our guests across the country starting today.”
Participating restaurants across the country will also begin offering Frosted Caramel Coffee, a new seasonal, sweet treat. Frosted Caramel Coffee also rolls out on Monday, Aug. 12, available for a limited time.
It is a delicious hand-spun treat that combines Chick-fil-A’s custom blend of cold-brewed coffee with vanilla Icedream dessert and caramel syrup. This seasonal offering will be available until Nov. 9 or while supplies last.
