Florida Chick-fil-A location launches option on app to have food delivered by drone

The Chick-fil-A location in East Brandon/Valrico, Florida, now offers drone delivery to customers within a 1.2-mile radius of its restaurant on East Brandon Boulevard.

Chick-fil-A fans near a central Florida location can now choose to have their meals dropped off by a drone!

On Monday, the East Brandon/Valrico Chick-fil-A location at 1504 E. Brandon Blvd announced customers can select the drone option by clicking "Chick-fil-A Delivery" when ordering in the app. 

Drone delivery is available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and can only be delivered to locations within 1.2 miles of the restaurant at the moment.

The delivery option is available at no additional cost for a limited time, the restaurant promoted on social media.

In a video posted to Facebook, the location demonstrated how drone delivery works by showing the process in its entirety, beginning with a customer placing the food order and ending with the drone gently dropping the order onto a grassy area.

The drone can also deliver drinks, which are sealed before leaving the restaurant, according to the location.
