Nationwide restaurant reports have made it clear: The spots that have fared the best during the COVID-19 pandemic are those that have been able to offer drive-thru service. Chick-fil-A has been an all-star fast-food chain when it comes to its drive-thru business, and now, the beloved chicken spot is taking that commitment even further.
Chick-fil-A is rolling out a fleet of food trucks to bring its most popular menu items to more communities, according to a local news station in Wane, Indiana. Some franchise operators with Chick-fil-A locations in mall food courts—which have been particularly hard hit—are parking the new food trucks outside in order to make it easy for customers to "eat mor chikin" without heading indoors.

A company spokesperson told Indiana's Washington Times Herald that the Chick-fil-A mobile service is also an adventurous way for the company to test out new markets and take the temperature among prospective customers in regions where Chick-fil-A locations don't already exist. The trucks have been making the rounds to over 30 cities in Indiana and Kentucky… and with rain and cold hovering over the Midwest this week, it seems crowds aren't too chicken to wait it out in gray weather.
In fact, earlier this week, customers in Washington, Indiana waited in line at one of the food trucks for more than an hour, and said their Chick-fil-A lunch was worth the wait, according to the Times Herald.

The mobile service menu is limited to the items that are in greatest demand, including regular and spicy chicken sandwiches, nuggets, waffle fries, and signature sauces.
