Chick-fil-A is finally giving into the plant-based trend and is testing a new cauliflower sandwich. Yes, you heard that right. A sandwich made of cauliflower and not chicken! The fast food chain that is known for its delicious chicken sandwiches has finally decided to cater to the increasing demand for vegetable options. This is a big step for the chain and a bold move considering the loyalty of their customers towards chicken.
The new Chick-fil-A Cauliflower Sandwich has been in development since late 2018 and will be tested in three markets starting from Monday, February 13th. The sandwich features a tender filet cut from a whole cauliflower that is marinated, breaded with Chick-fil-A’s signature seasoning, pressure cooked, and served on a toasted buttery bun with two dill pickle chips. The cauliflower sandwich was created in-house by Chick-fil-A’s culinary team who spent four long years trying to find a solution to the growing demand for more vegetable options.
The cauliflower sandwich will be available in Denver, Charleston, South Carolina, and Greensboro-Triad, North Carolina, starting Monday. The test is a big move for the chain and we can only hope that the sandwich will be a hit.
It’s not every day that you see a fast food chain trying to cater to the plant-based crowd. This move shows that Chick-fil-A is trying to keep up with the changing times and wants to offer something for everyone. The test will give the chain an idea of how customers are responding to the new addition and if it will be a permanent fixture on the menu.
