The crispy, golden-brown goodness of Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries will not return until January. But why?
Chick-fil-A’s strict operational requirements dictate that the fryer can not be located more than 20 feet from the serving area. Currently, the kitchen and prep areas for the Atrium restaurants are located about 50 feet away from the serving area.
Waffle fries will return in January, when the new Atrium concept debuts. As a matter of fact, the new Chick-fil-A will be twice the size of the old space and feature four fryers to keep up with the demand!
Although, waffle fries will be temporarily unavailable, there is a tasty fry alternative available. Check out the new fry station located in between the Wrap Bar and the Chick-fil-A serving areas. The alternative may not be waffle-shaped, but they still have the potato goodness you expect from a fry in every bite.
