Some Chick-fil-a locations have come up with a sweet deal that will reward families for spending more time having meaningful conversations, the company announced on Tuesday.
Restaurants are challenging families to put their phones down. If they successfully complete a meal without the distract of a cellphone, they get free ice cream.
Our Cell Phone Coops are here. Are you up for the challenge? #familychallenge #cellphonecoop #chickfila
Brad Williams, a Chick-fil-A Operator in Suwanee, Ga. first developed the idea with his team.
"The challenge has completely taken off," says Williams. "We have families who aren't successful the first time and come back to try again. We even have people asking to take the boxes home with them! Our whole community is talking about it."
The rules are simple:
1. Turn all family cell phones to silent and place in this cell phone coop.
2. Enjoy your Chick-fil-A meal and each other distraction free!
3. After the meal, let us now that you have successfully completed the challenge and each of you will receive a small Icedream cone.
The challenge isn't available everywhere but 150 locations have implemented the idea.
Contact your local Chick-fil-A operator to find locations near you that are participating in the challenge.
