Chick-fil-A has reached a multimillion-dollar settlement in connection with a class action suit over delivery costs.

As first reported by Top Class Actions earlier this month, the $4.4 million settlement Is broken down into a $1.45 million cash fund and a $2.95 million gift card fund. Notably, the settlement does include any admission of guilt from Chick-fil-A.

The Georgia case centers on the claims of six initial plaintiffs who alleged that Chick-fil-A advertised “free or low-cost delivery” of its menu, only to then raise the prices of the offered products when purchased for delivery. Chick-fil-A, the suit further alleged, “deceives consumers into making online food purchases they otherwise would not make.”

Moving forward, Chick-fil-A is expected to add a disclosure statement on its app pointing out that product costs could increase when placing a delivery order. As for those wondering whether they are entitled to an eventual payment, notes that eligible individuals will be sent an email, with projected individual payments falling just under $30. 

Complex has reached out to Chick-fil-A for comment. This story may be updated. In the near future, a designated page is expected to be launched on Chick-fil-A's website where customers can provide their info in connection with the settlement.

In September, the company announced a forthcoming expansion into the UK with a target launch window of early 2025.
