Chick-fil-A deliveries arrive by drone in Florida

"We anticipate a 2 mile radius soon."

Chickens have taken flight once again. A Chick-fil-A in the suburbs of Tampa, Florida launched a new pilot program on Monday that features new delivery drones

Chick-fil-A announced the new initiative on Instagram last week, showing a video of employees getting the meal ready and then placing it onto a small drone before it takes flight and delivers the box. 

The drone is specifically designed to be carefully sealed off so there are no spills during the flight process, according to 10 Tampa Bay

Those interested in the new service can currently only order if they are near a store location in Valrico, Florida, and must do so between 10 am and 6 pm Monday through Friday, The Messenger reports. 

A representative of the Valrico Chick-fil-A reportedly told a customer that the flying drones are able to make deliveries within 1.2 miles, but also said, "We anticipate a 2 mile radius soon."

This new business idea comes after the Chicken giant entered an agreement with DroneUp, a Virginia drone company that has also worked with Walmart, according to the Tampa Bay Times. 

Chick-fil-A spokesperson Chelsea Lee said that the company is "in the early stages of testing drone delivery at a small number of Chick-fil-A restaurants." Also coming from Chik-fil-A soon is the use of autonomous robot vehicles.
