Trending this week: Chick-fil-A tests express drive-thru lanes

This week on, the top story was, Paul Murphy to step down from helm at Red Robin Gourmet Burgers Inc. at end of 2022. Murphy told the board he would assist with the search for a successor and will remain as a “special advisor” until March 31, 2023, to ensure a smooth transition.

In other news, Chick-fil-A is testing express drive-thru lanes at select stores, the quick-service restaurant company announced Wednesday. These new lanes will be for mobile orders only.

“The express drive-thru lane is a game-changer for our busy customers and our team members,” Jonathan Lassiter, a senior integration leader on Chick-fil-A’s service and hospitality team, said in a release.

Also, Burger King will be expanding its plant-based offerings on June 27 with the debut of two new Impossible burgers: the Impossible King and the Impossible Southwest Bacon Whopper, which features an avocado spread. The burger chain, a division of Toronto-based Restaurant Brands International Inc., said Tuesday that the Impossible King, features a flame-grilled Impossible patty made from plants topped with American cheese, sliced white onions, pickles, ketchup and mustard on a toasted sesame seed bun.
