It’s the busiest time of the year for many people, and time to get everything done before the holidays is precious. That’s why Chick-fil-A has launched an initiative to help people give the gift of time.

The restaurant company has introduced campaign with a two-minute animated film, an online Time Shop, and a limited-time pop-up in New York City – all centered around creating space and gifting ‘Together Time’ at the holidays.

The campaign is fronted by an animated story introducing the magical world of The Time Shop. A girl tries to get her family to build a snowman with her, but they are all too busy. The girl, dejected, is led by two cats through a grandfather clock into an alternate world and a shop called the Time Shop. There she meets a man who shows her all the different elements of time – lost time, time that flies, and the most important, ‘Together Time’.

He gives her a certificate, which she takes back to her family and tells them about her journey. The family gathers around, listening intently and viewing the certificate. They all go out and start making a snowman together as the camera zooms in on the certificate, which says “1 hour to make the best snowman ever.”

The chicken chain is bolstering the message with a Time Shop website, where people can create and gift a custom Time Card to loved ones.

There will also be a free pop-up Time Shop experience in New York City, open in the SoHo neighborhood from 4-17 December (closed on Sundays, like all Chick-fil-A stores).
