Chick-fil-A App – No Skymiles Needed


While this may not seem to be about photography, it is about saving some time when ordering your breakfast, lunch, or dinner. As we know today, the most precious commodity we have is our time.

One of my favorite Apps and programs I use is the Delta Skymiles program. The loyalty program is excellent, and two main perks I love the most. The best part of the program is boarding early on all flights.

Having camera gear, I need to be sure this is on the plane, and I am handling it and not the baggage guys.

The second thing I like is accruing mileage to use towards future trips.


I now have another app saving me lots of time and giving me perks similar to the Delta App–Chick-fil-A’s new mobile ordering app.

I love three things about it: 1) Order accuracy, 2) jumping to the front of the line, and 3) No need to be a long-time user of Chick-fil-A to benefit.


The first thing you will do when you use the App locating Chick-fil-A restaurants near you that are participating. Over the next year, they are rolling this out in different markets. Lucky for me, in the Atlanta market, I can use the App. However, Chick-fil-A doesn’t expect to make mobile ordering available nationwide until 2016.


You tell them if you will pick up the meal: 1) Curbside, 2) Dine In, or 3) Carry Out.


Next, the App has you on the Menu page. Similar to the menu in the restaurant. You can pick a meal or à la carte.

Once you have ordered, you can save this order as a favorite. Held order is excellent for those customizations where you want more pickles or none, for example. Once you have that complicated or standard order, you can add that to your favorites.

Maybe you pick up for your family member as well as you, and you both have a standard order–this can save you time in the future.


There are combination meals, and once you pick one, you can change the drink’s size or side item like Waffle Fries.


Here you can customize your order as well.

Once you have the meal, it pops up, and you can review it. You can also see the Nutrition or Allergens by scrolling down.

Occasionally Chick-fil-A Cows might pop in with a suggestion as they did here with me.

Like Amazon, you put your credit card information into the App for easy paying. Payment in the APP speeds up the process.


You can also put money into the App. Money stored in the APP is excellent for parents with kids who need to keep them on a budget.


The last step is when you arrive; you click the button to tell them you are here, and they start your order. I don’t want those Waffle Fries just sitting around getting cold, so this keeps everything hot for you.
