My thoughts on Chick-fil-A
They are big on Christmas lights. The local one has a huge Christmas light display
They have an extremely loyal following. The local one was torn down and rebuilt bigger and 2 car lanes
The grand opening, parking lot full of RV campers and tents. Pretty impressive.
I'm aware of their anti gay stance
I don't eat there because in my opinion, the chicken sucks. Crappy food. yuck.
My go to chicken, Costco 4.99 rotisserie. Cheaper then a fast food meal, chicken tastes fantastic, you get a whole chicken. Its a no brainer.



I'm surprised an airport would consider any company that wasn't open seven days a week. While I have no problem with a store closing on a Saturday or Sunday for any reason, airports have limited dining options and I'd think a store open seven days is a better choice.

And yet their VegasBlvd store is going to be 7 days, according to several sources.
Still haven't tried them.

good point
I agree
Chick-a-Fil should not be considered for airports

Im surprised they didnt get boycotts from women angry at the suggestion "chicks get filled up"

Chik fil a



No, it's chick filet. Their base serving is the filet of a chicken breast, breaded and deep fried, on a bun.

When I was commuting to Wash DC 2000-2002, I flew several times next to the head of the company - we were both living in the Daytona Beach area, and Delta was flying small jets on some runs back and forth to ATL.

Mr. Cathy was a very sweet guy, in his late 70s 15-20 years ago. We had some interesting conversations. He strongly believed in keeping the Sabbath. So his stores do fine the other 6 days of the week, and leave people wishing they could buy them on Sundays. Not the worst business model.

He used to give the flight attendants stuffed cows for their kids, hand out free coupons for sandwiches, stuff like that. He passed away maybe 10 years ago? And I think his son runs it now.

I still don't eat chick-fil-a. I'm not interested in funding their anti-LGBT agenda, and I genuinely don't like their product, especially the waffle fries. But I have to respect a guy who sticks to his principles.

I gotta say, I enjoy chick fil a's chicken but choose not to eat there. I know when one entered near where I worked people camped out in front of it overnight. I think they were there 12+ hours. A year of free food is a +EV opportunity though!

They outsell McDonald's per unit being open 6 days a week.

I definitely disagree with the chain's beliefs, but I do eat it. I think they make a good product for the price. And when I lived in Atlanta, I definitely wanted to eat it on a Sunday. Lol

I liked their chicken sandwiches, but I am convinced it's only a meal with cole slaw and they don't sell it anymore.

their waffle fries are GOAT

i've been eating Chik Fil A a lot more recently. The In N out model of great food, and great customer service wins me over 100% of the time over McDonalds or any other fast food.

I don't know how tall they are standing because every time I go there ( that's not much) they have an overabundance of gay guys working there.

How can you tell? The gay walk, the valley girlish talk and hand gestures are a dead giveaway.

Not to mention the pink and purple Miatas sitting in the parking lot.


And no, I don't think it's admirable when you stand up for stupid beliefs.

Their crispy chicken sandwiches are better than most, however, the bread gets all smashed and soggy after the first bite, and that's disgusting to me.
