Chick-fil-A is recently finalizing some changes to its breakfast menu. If you’re fond of chicken, don’t worry – but if you don’t like caffeine in your coffee or prefer bagels for biscuits, it can affect your morning routine.
“Later this spring, we will be removing two items from the national menu, integrating bagel and decaf hot coffee, as well as several offerings of our size,” Chick-fil-A in a statement to TODAY Food by a spokesperson.
During the epidemic, many fast-food chains made it easy to operate and meet high demand for employees when drive-throughs and takeouts were the only available options in many parts of the country. McDonald’s cut dozens of items in March 2020, and in June, many announced a comeback, including salads, bagels, and yogurt parfaits. IHOP and Taco Bell were forced to do the same (shout out to vegetarian-favorite Mexican pizzas), despite being met with criticism by customers who didn’t want their go-to dishes to disappear.
But according to Chick-fil-A, its option to remove some breakfast items was not the result of an epidemic.
“By streamlining our menu, we will continue to provide quality food and service to our customers, as well as make room for future new menu items,” the company’s statement said.
Regular menu items will also have some downsizing: chicken nuggets will be offered as baby food only five-count (an average of four or six nuggets of current options) and milkshakes, coffee and ice cream cones. pared down.
In January 2020, before the epidemic reached the US, Chick-fil-A announced some of these menu changes to make way for hot new items. Changes began in select test markets throughout Charlotte, North Carolina and several restaurants throughout Arizona. There, they took out six main items including sausage and egg biscuits, sunflower multigrain bagels, side salads, decaf coffee, grilled cool wrap, and the original Chick-N-Strips. In their place, Spicy Chick-N-Strips, Grilled Spicy Deluxe Sandwiches and Spicy Chick-N-Strips Biscuits were added to the regional menu.

In January, Chick-fil-A rolled out the Grilled Spicy Chicken Deluxe Sandwich for a limited time at the restaurant. And on Monday, a company spokesman confirmed that the bagels and decaf brew were going to be subject to a long, country-wide elimination spring.
It seems that they really want customers to “eat more chicken”.
