The Short of It
Chick-Fil-A restaurants are introducing a service that just may make eating out with kids bearable!
Moms, meet Mom's Valet. It's ingenious, as in, why didn't someone think of this before? The service allows a parent or caregiver to order their meal at the drive-thru, with kids restrained, er, strapped into the car, then come inside where their food will be waiting at a table, with high chairs in place!
Can I get a collective "hallelujah"?
David Farmer, Chick-fil-A's vice president of menu strategy and development, told Business Insider the hectic process of ordering food and getting it to the table with rowdy kids in tow is what inspired this game-changing idea. He says Mom's Valet is the chain's effort to take the stress out of eating a meal out as a family.
I'll admit I'm not a huge Chick-Fil-A fan. In general, I prefer not to take my children to fast food restaurants. However, I agree ordering food at a counter and having to lug it over to your table, with a stroller or baby carrier and other kiddos under foot, is darn near impossible—or at least a reason to drink some wine when you get home. The Mom's Valet option actually entices this mom-of-three to perhaps give Chick-Fil-A another chance.
