If you have ever eaten at a Chick-fil-a you know that the experience you have there is better than any other fast food restaurant. Not only is their food fantastic the culture there is top notch. Fried chicken is fried chicken but somehow Chick-fil-A has made it a commodity. They are obviously doing things right because every time you go to one of their restaurants it is full of people.
We have all seen video’s or heard stories about the excellent service that their employees deliver, like the time one of their employees ran to catch up to a customers car after they forgot some of their food. and it is always above and beyond what you would experience elsewhere and that is what keeps people coming back time and time again.
Recently, Chick-fil-A just made a major announcement and it is leaving their customer’s unhappy. Will this move hurt their business?
According to Fox News, Chick-fil-A is putting one of its most popular menu items out to pasture after 20 years, the fast-food giant announced.
Chick-fil-A’s Cow Calendars — which included coupons for free food alongside photos of the company’s iconic, grammatically-challenged cow mascots every month — is being retired, a spokesperson confirmed to Fox News.
“We never like to disappoint our customers, so for that we are sorry, but we will continue to look for new ways to serve our guests in fun and creative ways,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
As they were released annually toward the end of the year, the calendars were often given as holiday gifts.
Chick-fil-A customers were recently sent an email with the announcement, and many fans took to social media to express their beef with the company.
“My parents have been buying me it every year for Christmas for as long as I can remember,” one Twitter user said.
Another said the calendar was the “backbone of my college survival” as he could get a free meal every month.
“I never thought that someone I loved so much could hurt me so deeply,” another Twitter user said.
Despite the loss of the Cow Calendars, customers can still earn free food from Chick-fil-A through its app, and on the annual “Cow Appreciation Day.”
I know that taking away their calendar won’t stop me from visiting Chick-fil-A’s on a regular basis. How many of you bought their calendars every year for yourself or for someone as a gift? What do you think of their decision to eliminate their calendar?
