Chick-fil-A Opens Big Rig ONLY Drive Thru to Say “Thank You” to Truckers
Farmington, NM – A Chick-fil-A restaurant in New Mexico has opened a big rig only drive thru to help truckers get access to a fast hot and fresh meal.
On Wednesday, a Chick-fil-A located at 4910 E Main St. in Farmington, NM, opened a semi-truck drive thru as a way to say “thank you” to truckers.
“We thought one of the ways we could say thank you to truckers is by making a spot they can come and eat,” John Evans, director of operations, tells Transportation Nation Network (TNN).
Evans explained the idea came from the franchise owner of that location.
“He said ‘why don’t we figure out a way to welcome truck drivers,’ Evans recalled.
So, after a bit of planning and consultation with the delivery truck driver, who also operates a tractor-trailer, a plan was hatched.
Evans and his team set up the big rig only lane in about a day and he says it can accommodate most tractor trailer combinations.
A trucker simply follows the marked signs and pulls his big rig through the designated area and then parks.
A Chick-fil-A employee comes to your truck, takes your order, and receives your payment.
Within a few minutes your food is delivered.
It’s as simple as that, Evans says.
Now, there’s just one problem… traffic!
“To my knowledge, we haven’t had a semi yet,” Evans admitted.
He’s hoping that will change soon.
In fact, he said some truckers who choose to stop by might even score a free meal.
If you do, tell them TNN sent you… oh, and make sure to try the Chick-fil-A sauce on the nuggets or a sandwich. It’s delicious.
