US-based fast food restaurant chain Chick-fil-A has partnered with DoorDash to offer delivery services from more than 1,100 of its restaurants across the US.

Chick-fil-A senior vice-president and chief marketing officer Jon Bridges said: “So many of our guests’ busy lives and family commitments have them strapped for time. Delivery is one way we can help them get a quick yet high quality meal. If they’re unable to come to us, we’ll come to them.”

Chick-fil-A and DoorDash started testing the delivery service in select markets in 2017 by making investments in custom-built technology integrations for order accuracy and smooth delivery.

As part of the partnership, the fast food chain will also integrate DoorDash into its point of sale system, enabling the delivery platform to scale additional restaurants.
