Houston will soon be the home of the first ever Chick-Fil-A food truck.
Don’t worry, Houstonians — the wait won’t be too grueling. According to the Houston Chronicle, the Chick-fil-A food truck is scheduled to open Dec. 15.
Chick-fil-A franchisee Jesse Chaluh is spearheading the project. “We’re still looking into where food trucks can go in Houston,” he told the Houston Chronicle. “We worked with a food-truck manufacturer who understands our rigorous food safety and quality standards. In fact, we’re in the process of going through safety and health inspections now.”
The Chick-fil-A food truck menu will be limited but will offer a few favorites. Patrons can order the Original Chicken Sandwich, the popular Spicy Chicken Sandwich, one or two cold entrée products and waffle fries. The drinks include the restaurant’s famous sweet and unsweetened tea, and lemonade. The truck will have four pressure cookers and a reach-in refrigerator.
Houston is a fitting location for the first ever Chick-fil-A food truck, considering the city has more of the restaurants than any other locale. Within Houston and the metro area, there are 71 locations.
Chaluh operates the Chick-fil-A restaurant on the Southwest Freeway between Buffalo Speedway — the second busiest location — and the one on Beechnut by Meyerland Plaza — the eighth busiest. The Chick-fil-A located at Wallisville and Beltway 8 is the busiest in the country. Chaluh also runs Chick-fil-A stands at University of Houston and Rice football games, Minute Maid Park and several other private locations.
It goes without saying that Texans love Chick-fil-A. You might recall Desiree Brown, a 15-year-old Texan who recently wrote a love-song to Chick-Fil-A that went viral.
