Find Out Why Chick-Fil-A Wants To Take Your Phone Away While You Eat

Considering how I always see families glued to their cell phones (or tablets and other handheld devices) while they eat at public, this isn’t a bad idea at all. A new report says that Chick-Fil-A is encouraging diners to “unplug” while placing their cell phones in “cell phone coops” while they eat. This means you won’t be browsing Facebook, texting or check your e-mail a dozen or so times while eating with your kids.

But that’s not all. Customers who leave their phones untouched during their entire meal get a special reward at the end, too.

Chick-Fil-A Diners are being asked to turn all of their cell phones to silent and place it in a cell phone coop while they eat.

This doesn’t sound like a bad idea at all!
