Chick-fil-A Reverses Controversial Menu Decision After Fans Voice Outrage - 'Our Guests Come First'


One healthy menu item at Chick-fil-A will live on after the chain’s fans spoke out against its planned cancellation.

Chick-fil-A announced a plan to shelve its side salad menu option last month, according to Fox Business.

However, the chain is backtracking, according to a statement provided to Fox.

“Based on feedback, we have decided not to proceed with removing our Side Salad from the menu.”

“We will continue serving the item at participating restaurant locations and hope customers continue to enjoy this menu offering.”

“At Chick-fil-A, our guests come first.”

It’s not clear if the salad is going to be preserved at every Chick-fil-A location.

The company statement on the menu change and reversal indicated that the salad would be kept at “participating restaurant locations.”

The end of the salad had been slated to accompany some other menu changes planned for April 3.
