Tomorrow, Aug 1, is Chick-fil-A Day!
7-31-2012 | vanity

Posted on 07/31/2012 7:41:48 AM PDT by servo1969

I have enjoyed Chick-fil-A's products for almost 30 years now. The first Chick-fil-A I ever saw was located in the Regency Mall (now closed) in Augusta, GA. Ever since I have always considered them to have the best fast food available anywhere. I found it odd at first that they weren't open on Sundays. Even back then I thought 'Well, that won't last. As they get bigger and more successful someone will probably put a stop to that.' Now, here it is decades later and they still don't do business on Sundays. As to why, here it is from their own FAQ at their website:

http://www.chick-fil-a.com/FAQ#?category=14
----------------------------
Corporate Information
Q: What is the Chick-fil-A. Inc.'s corporate address and phone number?
A: Mailing Address:
Chick-fil-A, Inc.
5200 Buffington Road
Atlanta, GA 30349-2998
Phone Number:404-765-8000
1-866-232-2040 (customer feedback line).

Q: What is the Mission Statement of Chick-fil-A?
A: Be America's best quick-service restaurant.

Q: What is the Corporate Purpose of Chick-fil-A, Inc.?
A: To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us. To have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.

Q: Why is Chick-fil-A closed on Sunday?
A: Our founder, Truett Cathy, made the decision to close on Sundays in 1946 when he opened his first restaurant in Hapeville, Georgia. He has often shared that his decision was as much practical as spiritual. He believes that all franchised Chick-fil-A® Operators and Restaurant employees should have an opportunity to rest, spend time with family and friends, and worship if they choose to do so. That's why all Chick-fil-A Restaurants are closed on Sundays. It's part of our recipe for success.

Q: Does Chick-fil-A, Inc. have stock available?
A: Chick-fil-A is a privately held corporation; therefore, no public stock is available.

Q: Does Chick-fil-A have a Mystery Shopping program?
A: Chick-fil-A® does not have a mystery shopper program on a national basis.

Q: How can I share with Chick-fil-A my opinions and feedback regarding my recent experience(s) at Chick-fil-A Restaurants?
A: Chick-fil-A is always grateful when customers contact us to offer feedback about their experiences at our Restaurants and our existing products and services.
To provide us with your feedback or opinions concerning recent experiences in Chick-fil-A® Restaurants or about our products or services, please visit our Contact Us page.
Please understand that, while we highly value feedback from our customers about their Restaurant experiences, Chick-fil-A may not be able to incorporate your suggestions into our business.
In any case, we are grateful for your interest in Chick-fil-A.
-------------------------

Amazing, really.

And to top it all off now the Giblets (GBLT) want to drive them out of business! Chick-fil-A has never hurt anyone but, you see, minding one's own business is no longer good enough! No, one must kowtow to the gods of gayness or be persecuted for one's 'wrong' thinking! Make no mistake - To the Giblets the very act of not praising homosexuality is, in and of itself, hate speech! All wrong thinkers must be punished as an example to others who might get the idea that it is acceptable to publically disagree with the homosexual lobby.

But this time I think things will be different. The mask has slipped a little. People all over the US have seen the way Chick-fil-A has been treated by mayors of various towns and they don't like it. The word has gotten around. People are talking in their churches and businesses.

So tomorrow, Aug. 1, has been designated "Chick-fil-A Day!"

I hope Chick-fil-As all over the US actually run out of product tomorrow. I predict lines of cars filled with people trying to give Chick-fil-A their custom will stretch around the stores and the parking lots will overflow. Chick-fil-A is going to have the largest single day's receipts in the chains history and good for them! I'm proud to say a tiny bit of that money will come from me.

Do everything you can to make it to a Chick-fil-A near you and buy some of their wonderful food! Even if you're not that crazy about chicken sandwiches, stop in and buy an ice-cream cone, milkshake or sundae. Just do it to let people know they can't tell you what to think and what not to think!

I was a bit shocked at the selective outrage among liberals on this one, and how they overplayed their hand.

Rahm Emmanuel is going to lecture us about “Chicago values” including endorsing homosexual marriage.

Homosexual marriage isn’t even legal in the state of Illinois, yet, to run a business in Chicago, you must support same.

Interesting to see that Emmanuel is working with Farrakhan(sp?) to get help to fight black gang violence in Chicago. Yet Farrakhan is strongly opposed to homosexual marriage, and strongly criticized Obama on that issue.

Isn’t it interesting that nowhere in the liberal screed over Chick Fill A, that NOBODY alleged discrimination based on homosexual or other orientation? This issue had nothing to do with allegations of illegal discrimination. Instead, it was all about a thought police issue, that one must now be liberal in order to run a business in liberal paradises such as Boston and Chicago.

Our local Chick-fil-A is already working hard to serve an unbelievable number of customers at lunch time. The lines are a mile long, is spite of having workers walking up and down taking orders. They have installed cash registers outdoors and they still cannot cope with the lunch crowds. I kind of enjoy the wait, it gives me a chance to see how many locals are coming out to support Chick-fil-A. I don’t know how we could do much better than that tomorrow!

FYI, the rejection of Jesus as a requirement for engaging in commerce is straight out of the Book of Revelations. I usually don’t give it to much credence, but Holy bleep.

If you go to a Chick-Fil-A tomorrow, be alert. I can envision a few lib whackos taking the opportunity and liberty to strike at a target-rich environment such as a CFA packed with people they hate. Video the event, if you can, too.

They have an online store. If you have a child you need to shop for for Christmas, they have an adorable little gardening/camping toy that is made up of the premiums they had in previous 'happy meals.'

Actually, I think that toy is so cute i might buy it for myself...

I really wish I could really join all you ‘Chick-A-Fillayers’ but they don’t have any francises here in Seattle or the suburbs. I only wish they would expand to the Pacific NW. From all the publicity and their basic philosophy, I would be a steady customer.

Having supported CF-A all along, -I am planning on Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner tomorrow at our local CF-A.

I may even buy some CF-A gift cards for other family members!

I always tell the workers at CF-A how much I appreciate CF-A for telling everyone just where their company executives stand regarding Marriage.

Too bad the Politicians don’t have same Reverence for God that most Americans have.

Holy blank is right!

I too, gave thought to that. These liberals are setting things up that, in order to run a business, you must support homosexual marriage.

If they get away with this, then they will require allegiance to other liberal causes as well, in order to get business licenses and zoning approvals for a business.

This is getting into dangerous territory. If we have to be liberal in order to run a business, where does that leave us?

Agreed.

That's why I'll be packing my Glock while I patronize the local Chick-fil-A tomorrow.

Marxists, liberals, progressives, democrats, OWS, GLBT, rainbow, and their associated front groups only have one value and it is themselves.

Love Chick-Fil-A, hate the mall. Only local CFA is in the mall. I may suck it up and have lunch there tomorrow. For what it’s worth, Dan Cathy is a heck of a nice guy too. I went to school with him in Atlanta in the 1970s.

A friend and I plan to drive from Southern Oregon to a Sacramento ChickfilA location. I LOVE ChickfilA food, but prefer to stay away from biggggg crowds. I want to show my support, but it’s also quite an investment of time and gas. As a fellow freeper, what would you suggest?

“I may even buy some CF-A gift cards for other family members!”

Great idea, EnglishOnly! I was already planning to dine at our local CFA; now I’m gonna buy gift cards, as well.

BTW, rather than giving the cards to f&f, how about sending them to liberal acquaintances or, better yet, send ‘em to the closest LGBT ORGANization and see what THEY do with them (snicker, snicker)

IMO the “participation” in this Aug.1 Eat Mor chikin flickin is well and good. However we- who agree with Mr.Cathy and who are Angry at this unwarranted attack on Chick -Fil- A need be watchmen on the wall so that the enemy does NOT succeed in
their queer economic jihad against Chick -Fil-A and sneak in mean spirited and unfair regulations against the business while we are busy eating chicken to show our support.

Is it the one in Fairfield, perchance? I ate there last Friday on my way up to Willows.

That is the only time I’ve eaten at a CFA (so far!), so I can’t give you an informed opinion on much of their menu, but the spicy chicken deluxe sandwich I had was delicious. And I think I may have found fries I like better than the fries at In-N-Out.

That'll work fine, at least until the San Jose CFA opens in mid-August. I'll just celebrate Chick-fil-A Day a little late. :)

Probably the Arden Fair store because it’s the closest considering the long drive. Fairfield is farther and would only be a consideration if we plan to hit the outlets in Vacaville.

I’m familiar with the menu and love their low cal healthy chicken wraps.

BTW, ChickfilA and In-n-Out are friends.

I wonder if there’s a more productive way to spend our time and energy...

Had breakfast there last week. Ate dinner there last night as a pre-run for Wednesday. Snicker.

Our pastor did a salt demo during on Sunday using CFA waffle fries and talked about supporting them. If everyone from my church eats there on Wednesday along with all of the other churches in our area it is going to be sooooo busy.

Perhaps we will run into other friends that we haven’t seen in a while.

Attention: Wisconsin Freepers.
https://www.wifamilyaction.org/civicrm/contribute/transact?reset=1&id=3

STAND WITH CHICK-FIL-A/STAND FOR MARRIAGE!

The news today included this gem: Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie gave $2.5 MILLION to defeat the marriage protection amendment in Washington State this fall. $2.5 MILLION!! Wow...there’s someone who puts his money where his anti-marriage values are!

Rest assured. We aren’t asking for $2.5 million, but we are giving you an opportunity to put your money where your pro-family, pro-marriage values are!

Want to support Chick-Fil-A and show your support for this Christian-based company whose courageous corporate president shares your values and says so publicly?

Can’t make it to Racine’s Regency Mall on Wednesday, August 1, to support Wisconsin’s only Chick-Fil-A with a sandwich purchase?

Well, WFC has a way for you to directly support Chick-Fil=A and marriage—even if you can’t eat at a Chick-Fil-A on Wednesday!

Make a tax-deductible donation to WFC’s Stand with Chick-Fil-A/Stand for Marriage project.

Yesterday we called the Racine Chick-Fil-A franchise and spoke with owner/managers Jamie and Katie Fuller. They are thrilled with our plan to show our support.

The first 100+ people to make a Chick-Fil-A purchase this Wednesday, August 1
will receive a $5 gift card sponsored by Wisconsin’s Marriage Champion organization, Wisconsin Family Council.
