The Chick-fil-A food truck project in Washington, D.C., launched in 2012, must have been a success, since the chicken sandwich experts are now rolling out a new food truck in Houston.
The Houston Chronicle reports that on Dec. 15, the brand new food truck will hit the streets. It won't have the iconic cows on it, like the old D.C. truck does, but it will have the name of the brand of which we are so familiar. If you're located in the Houston area, don't worry about not being able to identify it. You'll easily recognize that bright red cursive logo.
So, why Houston? The city actually has 74 Chick-fil-A locations, and two of which are the busiest locations in the entire country. The fact that Houston is obviously full of fried chicken and waffle fry fanatics probably has everything to do with this location choice. Chick-fil-A is still looking at specific options around the city for the food truck location, so keep your eyes peeled if Houston's your city.
The truck itself will have a limited menu, consisting only of the absolute essentials. That is, the original chicken sandwich, the spicy chicken sandwich, waffle fries, a couple of cold menu items and sweet and unsweetened iced teas and lemonade to drink. What more do you really need?
Chick-fil-A's food truck experiment hit the streets on a practice run in July of 2012 in Washington, D.C., according to Eater DC. That truck is called the Chick-fil-A mobile and it was first posted at a stop in Farragut North in the District. The limited menu introduced at this truck stop was a bit more expanded than the Houston truck is offering, but, to be fair, Washington doesn't have as many Chick-fil-A brick-and-mortar restaurants as Houston does, so these customers would undoubtedly have to go farther out of their way if they were craving nuggets instead of the sandwiches.
Anyway, it's important to note that this proves that the truck can offer more … when it's good and ready. Here's hoping Houston residents can get nuggets and soda soon, too!
