Military discount lunch at Chick-fil-A

Since 1946, Chick-fil-A has served its distinctive fried chicken throughout the country. The company recently expanded to Hawaii in September 2022.

The chain takes pride in high-quality ingredients, like all-breast chicken that’s free of fillers, artificial preservatives, hormones, antibiotics and steroids. Recently, the restaurant added gluten-free buns to their nationwide menu.

Chick-fil-A’s “giving back” philosophy encourages local restaurant operators to plan charitable endeavors, including military appreciation events. It also supports hospital workers, homeless shelters and other community initiatives, according to Chick-fil-A’s 2021 corporate social responsibility report

Additionally, many Chick-fil-A locations offer military and Veterans Day discounts.

Chick-fil-A’s Everyday Military Discount

Chick-fil-A doesn’t have a chain-wide military discount. 

“Because Chick-fil-A restaurants are locally owned and operated, some local restaurants may be offering discounts in their communities,” said Bekki Poelker, a spokesperson representing Chick-fil-A.

“Any offer would be at the individual restaurant level or potentially a market,” Poelker said in an email. She added that guests should check with their local restaurant for available discounts.

Out of 10 randomly selected Chick-fil-A locations, three stores said they offered a 10% military discount when we called in October 2022. 

Contact your local store to find out about their military discount policy.

Chick-fil-A’s Veterans Day Discounts

Chick-fil-A Veterans Day deals also vary by location. 

The Chick-fil-A in Flower Mound, Texas offers vets a free meal every year on Veterans Day, according to its Facebook page

Some locations offer more than a meal on Veterans Day. Chick-fil-A in Livingston, Texas will host a special celebration on Nov. 11, 2022, according to the restaurant’s Facebook page. The event will include a ceremony, a free chicken sandwich meal, a commemorative coin and a certificate for veterans while supplies last. 

Show your military or veteran ID or a copy of your DD-214 when you ask for a military or Veteran’s Day discount at Chick-fil-A.  

How Chick-fil-A Supports the Military and Veterans

Chick-Fil-A franchises also support veterans by hosting benefit events like Skate for the Chicken, which benefits Angels of America’s Fallen

Some Chick-fil-A locations host “military appreciation” events with free food for service members and veterans. However, military appreciation days don’t always coincide with Veterans Day, so make sure you check your local restaurant to keep tabs on upcoming events. 

Chick-fil-A restaurants in El Paso and Las Cruces held their military appreciation nights in October, offering free meals to active and retired military personnel plus their immediate families, according to news coverage of the event. 

Chick-fil-A franchises in San Diego also host an annual military appreciation night. Last year’s event aboard coincided with the Marine Corps’ birthday on Nov. 10. Chick-fil-A hosted the event aboard the historic USS Midway Museum, a retired aircraft carrier, according to local news. Attending veterans enjoyed live music, games, swag bags and – of course – free Chick-fil-A.
