Chick-fil-A, the extremely popular fast-food chain, creator of our favorite fast-food sauce, and slinger of cult-status waffle fries, now delivers nationwide. That means you, Takeout reader, could be lounging shirtless on your cat-hair-covered couch, digging into a Spicy Chicken Deluxe—with waffle fries, obviously—without ever having to put on shoes or leave your home. What a time to be alive, etc.

QSR Magazine reports the fast-food chicken chain has expanded its partnership with DoorDash to provide delivery to most of its national footprint, about 1,100 stores. Chick-fil-A piloted delivery via DoorDash in 2017, and the company says it gained some insights during that initial trial period, such as:

  • 90 percent of delivery orders include waffle fries (duh)
  • Delivery orders peak during dinner hours on days with crappy weather (duh times two)
  • Chick-fil-A locations near hospitals and colleges had the highest delivery sales

If you plan to place a Chick-fil-A delivery order—you’re doing it right now, aren’t you?—use code CFADELIVERY at check-out for a free chicken sandwich with your order. Chick-fil-A will only give away 200,000 of these freebies, though, so move your cat off your phone and get ordering.

And you can use that time waiting for your delivery to remind your LGBTQ friends and family that your love of gross fast food is more important than their equality! Thank you, Kate Bernot!
