Florida Drone Delivery Service Offered by Chick-Fil-A
In Brandon, Florida, a Chick-fil-A restaurant has added an innovative twist to their food delivery options—they’re using drones.
This exciting announcement was proudly shared via the restaurant’s Facebook page, marking a new chapter in how fast-food cravings get fulfilled in the Sunshine State.
Partnering with DroneUp, a company based in Virginia known for its collaborations with various retailers, this Chick-fil-A has soared into the realm of drone-based deliveries.
Interestingly, DroneUp previously introduced a similar service at select Walmart stores in Tampa and Orlando back in December 2022, marking their entry into the realm of aerial food delivery.

How Does This High-flying Service Work?
Customers can place their orders conveniently through an app, opting for ‘Chick-fil-A’ delivery. Once the order is prepared, the restaurant’s staff securely fastens it to a drone, which then takes off, navigating the skies to deliver the eagerly awaited meal directly to the customer’s location.
However, as with any new venture, there are limitations to start. The drone delivery service operates Monday through Friday, spanning from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and is currently limited to delivering within a 1.2-mile radius from the restaurant, as per reports by Fox Business.
Chick-fil-A isn’t a stranger to pioneering new ways to serve its customers. Earlier in the year, they initiated trials with self-driving vehicles for deliveries at select outlets across the country.
Additionally, there was a captivating moment in Austin, Texas, where a customer captured a robot serving guests at another Chick-fil-A location.
This move by Chick-fil-A signifies their continual exploration of cutting-edge technology to enhance customer experiences and redefine how we interact with fast-food services in this ever-evolving digital age.
