We were just at Chick-fil-A the other day and I realized, my nine and seven year old boys are getting too old to play at their indoor play area. Still, we love going there for the great food and we go once in a while when mommy needs some quick, “guilt-free” lunch for herself and for her little ones. 😉
Speaking of Chick-fil-A, I just got a heads up from the Chick-fil-A Fair Lakes (VA) folks that they’ve rolled out a brand new farmers-direct specialty grade coffee called Thrive Farmers Coffee. I’m glad to share this information because I love the idea behind this coffee: it cuts out the middle man (buyer) and uses a farmer-direct business model. Fortune magazine featured the new model in a recent article. What this means is that the local farmers are not only able to better use their land but also receive more income and enrich the community. In other words, when a cup of coffee is purchased from Chick-fil-A, the farmers receive more income from your dollar than if that cup of coffee was purchased from competitors.
With Thrive Farmers Coffee, Chick-fil-A promises better-tasting coffee for their customers while helping to build communities and enriching the lives of local farmers. Coffee that does good for our hard-working farmers .. why not? 🙂
Happy to share as well, that all Washington, DC, NOVA (Northern VA) and Maryland Chick-fil-A locations will be giving away both hot and iced coffee all day from September 29th – October 4th as part of their National Coffee Day celebration on September 29th.
If you live in or around the Baltimore (Maryland) area, check your nearest Chick-fil-A restaurant as they will be running an identical promotion.
