Boise Restaurant Encouraging You To Put The Phones Down During Dinner Time
It is so easy to get lost when it comes to figuring out what you are going to do for dinner every night. Running through a drive thru can be the easiest thing to do. I've done this so many times. Sitting down and spending time with the family at the dinner table has become a thing of the past these days. It's hurry up and go.
More than 150 Chick-Fil-A Restaurants across the country are jumping on board the train of getting back to a slower time. A time when sitting down and talking with family members at the table was a nightly occurrence. This is amazing! I love what they are doing. They are encouraging when you come in with your family you take the "Family Challenge" Put the phones away inside the box and just talk while you enjoy the best chicken sandwiches in the world AND they are throwing in that every member of your family will end up getting a free ice cream cone.A literal "Phone Coop" to get the digital distractions away from the table.
While this is happening across the country it has yet to hit Boise. March 14th is the proposed start date for the 4 Chick-Fil-A stores in the Treasure Valley.
Here is a list of participating stores: Chick-Fil-A on Broadway - 300 S. Broadway Ave Chick-Fil-A on Franklin - 8000 Franklin Road Chick-Fil-A on BSU Campus - 1910 W. University Dr. Chick-Fil-A at the Village in Meridian - 2012 N. Eagle Rd
