Slated for rollout on June 7, the Chick-fil-A spicy chicken sandwich reservation allows for limited preview tastings.

Chick-fil-A still privately held

The Chick-fil-A company has been around since the 1940s and has been known as Chick-fil-A since the 1960s. The company has always been privately held. At one point, Warren Buffett offered significant payday cash advances to the company to go public – but it opted to not take the offer. With revenue of about $3 billion in 2009, the company is proving a good investment for the owner and three generations of family that continue to operate the business.

Problems with Chick-fil-A reservations

Some people trying to make reservations for the free spicy chicken sandwich at Chick-fil-A have been encountering problems on Monday morning. With hundreds of thousands of people trying to get their reservations in, the website appears to not be operating correctly. This spicy chicken sandwich reservation is Chick-fil-A’s way of avoiding a KFC-like disaster and running out of free product. If the website does not return to functioning soon, however, it is possible that Chick-fil-A may be facing customer frustration and anger.

The Chick-fil-A chicken secret

The Chick-fil-A spicy chicken sandwich is going to, most likely, use a spicy breading on the traditional Chick-fil-A sandwich. Chick-fil-A was the first fast food place to use high-pressure peanut oil to fry chicken, which helps create the thick, juicy sandwich that the company is known for. This high-pressure method is now used in most grocery store delis as well. If you want a Chick-Fil-A style sandwich at home, try browning breaded chicken in oil in a pan for a few minutes, then baking the chicken in the oven to cook it through. It may take a bit more work, but it means you can get a Chick-fil-A style spicy chicken sandwich long before it goes on the menu.
