Last week we went on a fun field trip. Somebody in our homeschool group heard that Chick-Fil-A was offering free kitchen tours. I’m not sure if all locations are offering this, but we went to the Brier Creek location.
It was a quick tour through the kitchen with a brief historical intro. The kids thought it was neat to go behind the counter and into the kitchen. I was impressed to learn that they prepare fresh vegetables and fruits everyday for all of their salads. The lemonade was being freshly squeezed while we were touring – wow, it was a whole lot of lemons!! We also learned that they were the first restaurant to open in a mall. At the end we were surprised with a sample of a sweet treat. There were a few other interesting tidbits, but I don’t want to spoil everything.
Of course, we stayed for some ice-cream and playtime. Which also meant some nice adult relax and conversation time for me. It was a great way to spend a hot summer afternoon.
Looking for a fun, indoor homeschool field trip this summer? Give your local Chick-Fil-A a call to find out if they are offering tours and schedule one for your group.
Wondering what our little ones thought about the tour?
