Fast food chain Chick-fil-A is encouraging customers to ditch their smartphones during dinner, even placing boxes called “cell phone coops” on the tables at some of its locations. The point is to get people to talk to each other instead of texting or scrolling through social media. The initiative in stores in January, and it’s since spread to nearly 200 Chick-fil-A locations across the country. “For a lot of our regular guests, it’s becoming a habit,” he said. “They come in our stores and say, OK, cell phones in the box.” Customers who leave their phones untouched during the entire meal get a free ice cream.
