Chick-fil-A is rolling out family-style meals and two new sides — mac and cheese and bacon baked beans — in three cities –with San Antonio being the on Texas test city. The new meals start at $30 and include one entree, two sides, and eight mini rolls to serve four people. If rolled out nationwide, they would be a direct threat to KFC's popular "bucket" meals, also meant for large groups. Chick-fil-A's meals are meant to draw more customers during dinner, the least busy meal for Chick-fil-A restaurants after lunch and breakfast, according to Matt Abercrombie, Chick-fil-A's menu-development manager. Family-style entree options include 30 chicken nuggets, 12 chicken strips, or four chicken breasts either grilled or fried. Side options include bacon baked beans, a fruit bowl, mac and cheese, a salad, or a so-called superfood side (kale and broccolini with dried cherries, nuts, and a maple vinaigrette dressing).
