NRN editors discuss earnings season and Chick-fil-A’s new prototypes

Plus, hear from Kat and Landon Eckles of Clean Juice


This week on the Extra Serving podcast, a product of Nation’s Restaurant News, NRN editors Holly Petre, Sam Oches and Leigh Anne Zinsmeister talked about earnings season.

Earnings season has just begun. The editors talked about the trends they expect to see throughout the industry as well as what they’re looking for from certain brands. Chipotle, McDonald’s, Subway, Domino’s and Sweetgreen all reported this week. The editors will give you the rundown on what they’re expecting to see in Q2 earnings.

Also, the editors talked about Chick-fil-A’s new prototypes. One new prototype looks a lot like the Taco Bell Defy location, which was a massive success for that brand. The other is a walk-up concept like Chipotle’s walk-up windows across the country. Will Chick-fil-A be able to get away with the same kind of publicity as Taco Bell, and how will the walk-up windows affect customers’ experience?

This week’s guests are Kat and Landon Eckles of Clean Juice.
