You can now snag Chick-Fil-A with Apple Pay.
Apple Pay has expanded to all Chick-Fil-A locations. According to today’s tweet, however, Apple Pay will be accepted at all Chick-Fil-A locations as of this Friday, August 19th. The mobile payment platform will be supported in-store and in the drive thru.
Chick-Fil-A’s adoption of Apple Pay comes after the company has experimented with QR-based solutions in the past. Those solutions ultimately failed, according to employees, much like other QR-based offerings we’ve seen. Chick-Fil-A has, however, supported Apple Pay in its recently revamped app on iOS.
Apple still has Chick-Fil-A listed as “coming soon” on its Apple Pay web site. Other entities listed as coming soon including Forever 21, Johnny Rockets, T-Mobile, and L.L. Bean.
As is usually the case with Apple Pay rollouts in national chains, some users have already reported being able to use the service at their local Chick-Fil-A. The full rollout, however, should be completed by this Friday, August 19th.
If you’ve seen Apple Pay functionality at your local Chick-Fil-A, please let us know about your experience in the comments.
