Chick-fil-A has reportedly agreed to pay $4.4 million to customers who accused the company of promising low delivery prices while also allegedly inflating menu prices during the pandemic.
The publication stated that Chick-fil-A didn’t admit to any guilt in the settlement.
The Georgia plaintiffs said they filed a proposed class action lawsuit on behalf of themselves and others nationwide who “ordered food delivery through the Chick-fil-A mobile app or website and were assessed higher delivery charges than represented,” according to multiple media outlets.
Eligible class members will be able to receive a $29.25 cash payment or $29.25 gift card as a part of the agreement. The parties also agreed to a “direct email notice system” to inform those potentially impacted.
Chick-fil-A also agreed to disclose on its website and app that “menu prices may be higher for delivery orders.”
This isn’t the first time a company has been accused of charging users more for select services.
DoorDash faced similar allegations in May after a proposed class-action lawsuit claimed that the company charges iPhone users more than Android owners for its DashPass service.
The class-action lawsuit alleged that iPhone users who use DashPass, the company’s $9.99-a-month service, are charged an extra fee on each order, which negates the savings they get from the subscription, Insider reported.
DoorDash, in a statement to Insider, denied the claims.
KTLA reached out to Chick-fil-A about the reported settlement but has not received a comment.
