Backstage Tour at Chick-Fil-A

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?
Homeschool Dude Says:  “I didn’t know there was a kitchen.  There were a ton of lemons!”
Homeschool Dudette Says:  “It was fun.  I liked the sample.”
