Hybrid Chicken Slider Sandwiches

Chick-fil-A's Chick-n-Sliders are Available at Select Locations

— May 30, 2018 — Lifestyle
Good things come in small packages, which is why Chick-fil-A is introducing the Chi-n-Sliders, a hybrid offering that was inspired by two of the brands fan-favorite items.

This particular offering arrives in a snack-sized portion but combines the chain's famous Chick-n-Minis offering with its original Chicken Sandwich item. The two pieces come together to form this new offering, which is constructed from the chain's seasoned, battered and deep fried chicken breast. The sandwich arrives on a warmed roll that's been coated with an indulgent honey butter spread, making for a dynamic flavor profile that one might not expect.

This offering is currently in the testing phase, with plans to expand throughout the United States should it be well received.
Trend Themes
1. Hybrid Fast Food - Chick-fil-A's Chick-n-Sliders showcase the trend of combining popular menu items to create innovative hybrid offerings.
2. Snack-sized Portions - The introduction of Chick-n-Sliders reflects the trend of offering smaller, more convenient portions for on-the-go consumption.
3. Indulgent Flavors - The honey butter spread on Chick-fil-A's Chick-n-Sliders taps into the trend of creating unique and indulgent flavor profiles in fast food.
Industry Implications
1. Fast Food - The hybrid fast food trend presents opportunities for other fast food chains to create innovative combination meals that appeal to a wide range of tastes.
2. Convenience Foods - The popularity of snack-sized portions indicates potential disruption in the convenience foods industry, with opportunities for new product offerings and packaging designs.
3. Flavor Enhancers - The demand for indulgent flavors in fast food opens up opportunities for companies in the flavor enhancement industry to create innovative and unique taste experiences for consumers.
