Chick-Fil-A has joined a growing number of quick-service franchises that are testing or deploying a mobile payment app for customers.
The fast-food chicken chain is currently piloting a mobile payment application in 20 locations in North Carolina, according to the Greensboro-based Triad Business Journal.
The application uses QR codes to enable mobile payments in the restaurant or a drive-through lane. After downloading the app and registering an account to load funds, the customer can tap the "pay" button on the phone's screen to display a QR code to be scanned at the register.
The Atlanta-based chain is determining if it can expand the mobile app to other markets later this year, the Business Journal reports.
