What's the only thing better than eating Chick-fil-A for dinner? Noshing on Chick-fil-A catering at a tailgate. Or a birthday party. Or a company luncheon.

Chick-fil-A knows that we super fans are onto something, and you'll be pleased to learn they're opening a new restaurant concept in two Southern cities, Nashville and Louisville. As Greg Rossino shared on Chick-fil-A's blog, The Chicken Wire, "[with] a growing demand for food to-go, Chick-fil-A is testing a new restaurant prototype," focusing on catering and delivery. The two outposts will open this month.

These new restaurants will act as hubs for catering and delivery operations, featuring sprawling kitchens — in Nashville, around 4,200-square-feet of the restaurant's 5,800-square-feet will be kitchen space. Perhaps surprisingly to some, the spaces will lack both dining room areas and also drive-thrus. Fear not, though, you can still place a single order from the restaurant's full menu (hello, Waffle Fries) at the restaurants' counter or through DoorDash delivery. If you're ordering catering, food will be available for either in-store pickup or delivery. The new prototypes will also be cash-free, meaning you can only use credit or debit cards or the Chick-fil-A One app to place your oder.
