ATLANTA—Chick-fil-A is testing a new breakfast option, Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites, in select markets. This is the first new breakfast entrée Chick-fil-A has created in five years.
The Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites will be available for a limited time starting August 22 at participating restaurants in Augusta, Georgia; Aiken, South Carolina; Columbus, Ohio; Norfolk and Portsmouth, Virginia; Miami and New Orleans. Customer feedback will help determine if the new breakfast bites will be featured on menus nationwide in the future.
“As summer ends and the back-to-school morning routine begins, we wanted to offer our customers a new protein-packed entrée that keeps them satisfied when they’re on-the-go without sacrificing taste,” said Leslie Neslage, director of menu and packaging at Chick-fil-A. “Our guests are asking for more bite-sized, shareable breakfast options, and we look forward to hearing what they think about our limited-time Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites test.”
The Chorizo Cheddar Egg Bites are baked in-house every morning and are made with whole eggs, Mexican-style chorizo sausage and a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses. Each order includes four egg bites.
Chick-fil-A leads in customer satisfaction for the eighth year in a row, according to the American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACI) Restaurant Study. The fast-food chain received a score of 83 out of 100, and respondents answered questions about their experiences with Chick-fil-A, including accuracy of food order, food quality, courtesy and helpfulness of staff, restaurant layout and cleanliness and speed of checkout/delivery/foodservice.
