No, Chick-fil-A isn’t testing wings, despite viral video, but here’s why there’s confusion

August 11, 2022 0 By Cypher9ja



Sorry, Chick-fil-A fans, if the idea of lip-licking, bone-in wings from your favorite quick-service establishment sounds too good to be true, that’s because it is.

Fans of the always-efficient fast-food establishment have been salivating for the past week over the idea of potentially getting their hands on a delicacy only Chick-fil-A can bring to the next level.

But, alas, the dream has been squashed.

An Instagram post claimed Chick-fil-A was getting into the wing game. Based on the visual evidence, it is easy to say why.

However …

A representative for Chick-fil-A told Eater the wings are actually from Outfox Wings.

So, what gives?

Outfox Wings is one of the eateries in business with Little Blue Menu in Nashville, which is created by the menu team at Chick-fil-A.

Little Blue Menu is a multi-brand ordering and delivery marketplace offering a variety of curated food options. It is inspired by the blue menu from Chick-fil-A founder S. Truett Cathy’s beginnings at the Hapeville (Ga.) Dwarf House, where he constantly tweaked his menu to give customers what they wanted most.

The photo shows a takeout box filled with chicken wings but with a Chick-fil-A label on top.

Little Blue Menu, which is owned and operated by the Chick-fil-A, has five restaurants in which people can order from, including Chick-fil-A, Outfox Wings, Flock and Farm, Because, Burger and Garden Day.

The Chick-fil-A Corporation has a Little Blue Menu in Nashville, with another Little Blue Menu in the works for College Park, Maryland.

“We don’t have plans to open a Little Blue Menu location in Atlanta at this time, and we aren’t testing chicken wings at Chick-fil-A restaurants,” the representative told Eater. “We love to see the excitement for Bone-In Wings offered at Little Blue Menu, which is currently only available at a single location in downtown Nashville.”

The confusion is understandable.

In addition to the label on the wings, Chick-fil-A is no stranger to dabbling in other enterprises.

In 2020, another restaurant near Atlanta (Fayetteville, Ga.) created by Chick-fil-A Founder Truett Cathy treats guests to a tropical taste of paradise. Truett’s Luau, a Hawaiian-themed restaurant, offers a number of island dishes while making some Chick-fil-A staples available.

Sorry to crush your culinary dreams.
