Chick-fil-A offers, in all of its 150 or so stores, the “Cell Phone Coop,” a box where dining families and friends can leave their phones and gadgets while they wolf down their chicken nuggets and waffle fries.

The coop was the brainchild of Chick-fil-A operator Brad Williams of Suwanee, Georgia, who wanted “a sense of community” and quality time for their customers.

“But as we all know, technology increasingly demands more of our time and be a big distraction, even while we’re eating. This got me thinking about what we could do to reduce this distraction during meals,” he says.

How does the coop work? Everyone at the table should turn their phone to silent and place them inside the box. Guests who successfully complete the challenge of keeping their cell phones untouched in the coop during their meal will receive a Chick-a-fil-A Icedream on the house.

Williams shared that the challenge has totally taken off, with those with an unsuccessful first attempt returning to stores to give it another try.
