Chick-fil-A debuts better-for-you options; adds calorie counts

April 22, 2013

Chick-fil-A’s is developing and adding healthier items to its menu. On April 29, the restaurant chain will introduce three new premium salads—the Chick-fil-A Cobb Salad, Chick-fil-A Asian Salad, Chick-fil-A Grilled Market Salad—as well as an improved Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap to expand its menu options for customers.

Chick-fil-A’s new salad entrées will feature ingredients such as romaine lettuce, mixed baby greens, honey Thai almonds, roasted corn, mandarin oranges, strawberries, blueberries, and more. Starting at $6.79, each salad will offer two or more servings of vegetables or fruit, and have between 180 and 430 calories (without dressing).

Chick-fil-A is also making changes to its salad dressing options. The salads can now be paired with dressings unique to Chick-fil-A, such as Zesty Apple Cider Vinaigrette, Avocado Lime Ranch, and Honey Sesame. And, for the first time, the new Chick-fil-A Cobb Salad and Chick-fil-A Asian Salad will be topped with hot, sliced Chick-fil-A Nuggets.

Complementing its new entrée salads, Chick-fil-A also will debut an enhanced Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap. The improved wrap provides a full serving of vegetables and lean chicken on a new all-natural, high-fiber flax bread. Starting at $4.89, the wrap is filled with grilled chicken, green leaf lettuce, shredded red cabbage, carrots, and a blend of Monterey Jack and cheddar cheeses. The Grilled Chicken Cool Wrap has 330 calories and 12 g of fat.

In addition to introducing new menu items, Chick-fil-A is making changes to its menu boards behind the counter. The chain is adding calorie counts to its menu boards nationally in an effort to help customers make more informed ordering decisions and to assist guests in selecting meals that suit their individual dietary needs and preferences. The menu boards will also feature new food photography and type fonts set on a clean white background.
