Chick-Fil-A has been under attack in recent months by far Left groups, specifically because of the Christian values held by the owners of the chain.
Democrats all throughout the country have attempted to promote boycotts against the fast food chain but according to a recent report by Yahoo, the boycotts are backfiring considering Chick-Fil-A has become the third largest fast food chain in America.
“Each year since 2015, Chick-fil-A has been the top-rated fast-food restaurant on the American Customer Satisfaction Index, which considers factors such as staff courtesy and restaurant cleanliness,” the Wall Street Journal, said. “Among limited-service U.S. restaurants that mainly serve chicken, Chick-fil-A’s market share rose to 33% last year from 18% in 2009, while the market share of Yum Brands Inc.’s KFC chain fell to 15% from 29% in that time, according to data tracker Euromonitor.”
The Journal also mentioned that since 2007, the chain has doubled their locations and also hit $10.2 billion in sales in 2018, a huge accomplishment.
“We’ve been pretty consistent in how, over multiple decades, we’re going to take it slow and steady,” Mark Moraitakis, the Chick-fil-A senior director said. “It’s paid off for us.”
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Though the restaurant has been praised for the friendly and efficient customer service and legendary chicken, it has also become a target of left-wing political backlash. Activists and politicians have tried to brand Chick-fil-A as discriminatory and anti-LGBT over the company donating to Christian charities and CEO Dan Cathy’s nearly-decade old remarks affirming that biblical marriage is between a man and a woman.
“It has been seven years since Dan Cathy affirmed biblical marriage in an interview. Seven years. Almost a decade. And yet the LGBT lobby has not yet dropped the matter. Against all odds, they have remained obsessed with the chicken chain for these 80 or so months,” The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh wrote last month. “Just recently, Chick-fil-A locations were blocked from opening at airports in Buffalo and San Antonio. Protests are still waged. Gay rights activists are still writing angry think pieces. We still are told that eating a Chick-fil-A chicken nugget is an act of bigotry against homosexuals. The chicken itself is labeled ‘hateful.’ All, again, because of views expressed by Dan Cathy during Obama’s first term in office.”
Walsh highlighted that Chick-fil-A has not been “accused of actively discriminating against gay people. They serve gay people. They hire gay people. They do not take any discriminatory actions of any kind against gay people.”
The Democrats are making it clear that they will do anything to ruin the fast food chain.
In March, the city council of San Antonio has announced that they would be banning Chick-Fil-A from being able to have a restaurant in the local airport because of Chick-Fil-A’s alleged “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”
The six members of the council announced that Chick-Fil-A would be excluded from the new Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement that has been made for the local airport.
“With this decision, the City Council reaffirmed the work our city has done to become a champion of equality and inclusion,” Councilman Roberto Treviño said at the time. “San Antonio is a city full of compassion, and we do not have room in our public facilities for a business with a legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior.”
Just another swing and a miss by the Left.
