Customers of Chick-fil-A are suing the fast food chain for a ’30 percent price increase’ on delivery products.
UNHAPPY Chick-fil- A customer has filed a lawsuit against the fast food company for allegedly raising the price of items purchased for delivery.
Two New York plaintiffs claim that Chick-fil-A has been charging increasing delivery costs since 2020, on top of a flat fee for delivery orders, according to a new lawsuit.
They went on to say that not making this apparent to buyers is “deceptive.”
According to the lawsuit, Chick-fil-A increases the price of food for delivery orders by 25% to 30%.
According to the plaintiffs, ordering a 30-pack of chicken nuggets for delivery costs $5 to $6 more than ordering via the app for pick-up or ordering in a physical store.
According to them, this “secret delivery upcharge… considerably exceeds” Chick-fil-claims A’s that the delivery rate is a flat $2.99 or $3.99.
The Sun looked up Chick-fil-prices A’s online and found that a bag of 30 chicken nuggets costs $19.35 for pick-up from a New York location.
Meanwhile, shipping from the same branch costs $25.15, according to its website, an increase of $5.80, or 30%.
The lawsuit seeks “compensatory and punitive damages” as well as an end to Chick-fil-claimed A’s “unlawful acts.”
Chick-fil-A has been asked for comment by The Sun.
It comes as delivery platforms such as Grubhub, Uber Eats, and DoorDash have lately been chastised for increasing their usage during the coronavirus outbreak.
Chick-fil-A had a sauce shortage at the start of the summer.
At the time, guests could only have one sauce per entree, two sauces per meal, and three sauces each 30 chicken nuggets.
McDonald’s is giving people free breakfast every weekday this week, in other fast food news.
For a limited time, the fast food company has also announced intentions to bring back the iconic McRib.
