Fundraiser {Eat Mor Chikin’}

When we first sat down to realistically evaluate what kind of fundraisers we could utilize for this adoption, Chick-Fil-A was at the top of our list. My husband has worked for them for years and is on track to applying for his own store. The brand and company have kinda become a part of our marriage- or at least it feels like it sometimes. The really awesome thing about Chick-Fil-A is that they sell sandwiches to schools and churches so that they can resell them for a small profit (which I know other places do this too, but I’m a little biased). The plan is to sell a meal consisting of a sandwich, chips, and a drink as the meal offered on Wednesday nights before services. This is intended to be for the youth group, but we all know there are many adults who wander back to the youth building for some good eats as well. This particular fundraiser begins this week, and we are super excited. I’ve posted the web flier below. If you’d like to come out for some super awesome Chick-Fil-A sandwiches with some super excited people, just let me know and I can direct you to our church 🙂

    What a great idea! Do you know if any Chick-fil-A will do this? Has it been profitable? We’re trying to raise money for our adoption too!

    1. Thanks! It’s not a required option for all Chick-Fil-A stores to offer but it is heavily encouraged by corporate. In order to get the discounted rate you must be going through an organization such as a church or school (the specific Operator at the store you are asking may extend to other group types but that’s the basic). Not everything on the menu will be discounted, but the idea is to sell the original sandwich. From using a group like that you also get it tax free. We buy our chips in bulk at a Sam’s Club since we have a membership and the drinks are from the drink fountain in the church kitchen and we reimburse the church what they asked per drink sold.

      For us it has been profitable. It’s slower over the summer, but it’s something that’s easy to throw together last minute and we can do it continuously without feeling like we’re constantly throwing fundraisers at people. For the kids and their parents, they’re excited to have Chick-Fil-A and then ‘oh hey, it’s a fundraiser’.

      Good luck with your own journey! and thanks for checking in!
