ATLANTA (Mar. 2, 2016)– Chick-fil-A wants you to put down your phone and enjoy some chicken — and if you follow the rules, you could score some free ice cream.

Brad Williams, a Chick-fil-A Operator in Suwanee, Ga., developed a “Cell Phone Coop.” The box is placed on each table and includes a simple challenge: enjoy your meal without your cell phone.

If your entire family can enjoy a meal without the use of cell phones, then you can each receive a free small ice cream cone.

“Americans now spend an average of 4.7 hours per day on their phone, according to a 2015 Informate Mobile Intelligence study. Although our phones were meant to bring us closer together, they can sometimes have the opposite effect,” Chick-fil-A said in a press release.

Although the “coop” isn’t available at all restaurants, more than 150 locally owned Chick-fil-A locations are offering guests the opportunity to take challenge.
