Skip to comments.Boomerang: Feminist Writer's Attempt To Mock Chick-fil-A's Branding Does Not Go According To Plan
Posted on 04/19/2018 5:58:30 PM PDT by Kaslin
Were back to this crap again. Progressives freaking out that a Chick-fil-A opened in New York City because Christians are creepy. First of all, its a delicious fast food chain. Two, because progressives hate ityou know its great. Feminist writer Jill Filipovic fired off red flares, warning fellow New Yorkers not to give the fast food chain their business. Of course, she got a backlash, in which she decided to mock her trolls saying they couldnt spell Chick-fil-A.
Don't give your money to bigots who stand against everything that makes your town the best in the world (diversity, ambitious women, independent businesses, gays). https://t.co/0YHLHGJykm Jill Filipovic (@JillFilipovic) April 13, 2018
One more thing I learned today: even its most die-hard fans dont know how to spell Chick-fil-A. I guess Jesus can do a lot but he cant make you good at branding, she tweeted.
Overall, Filipovic is great to read for the other sides perspective. In this case, it shows, once again, partially why Donald Trump won the 2016 election. Mocking fast food eaters and Christianity to strike a blow for the progressive cause. Like Clinton, you wrote off like half the country, maybe more. Its a freaking chicken sandwich chain, folks. Also, its Twitter; some words need to be shortened of abbreviated for character space, so I would assume that not every time its defenders cited the brand had its precise spelling. Also, Chick-fil-A is great at branding. Right now, the chain is about to overtake Taco Bell, Wendys, and Burger King. Oh, and this is happening while all their locations shut down on Sundays to observe the Lords Day (via MSN) [emphasis mine]:
Fast food companies are constantly competing to poach potential customers from their competitors, whether it's with an exceedingly witty social media presence or by cashing in on of-the-moment trends. However, sometimes all it takes to gain new customers is dedication to what you're good at and faster, more convenient service. That's evidently been working for Chick-fil-A because the chicken-centric chain is currently on track to become the third largest fast food restaurant in the United States, overtaking behemoth brands like Taco Bell, Wendy's, and Burger King.
And while anyone who's been treated to one of Chick-fil-A's signature sandwiches can attest to their deliciousness, it's tough to imagine it's quietly grown more popular, and bigger, than some of the most prominent players in the fast food game. They're not even open on Sundays. Yet, there are quite a few surprising elements that've helped to catapult the premier purveyors of non-beef on-the-go meals around the country to the top.
As BuzzFeed notes, one of the biggest factors in its growth is its smart incorporation of technology, making the whole customer experience faster and arguably better with mobile ordering options and in-restaurant ordering by tablets. As a result, the average Chick-fil-A location makes more than $4 million in annual sales, which is millions more than any other major fast food chain in America. They've also doubled down on convenience by streamlining the drive-thru experience -- one location in Oklahoma City recently served 216 cars in under one hour, per the report. That's a rate of 3.6 customers per minute just at the drive-thru.
Oh, and to add to the irony, which our friends at Twitchy pointed out, she suggests that the local Kenyan chicken stands should set up shop to compete with Chick-fil-A in New York, though she isnt sure how to spell or pronounce the name. Filipovic moved to Kenya in 2016. She also was triggered by the amount of Christian missionaries that arrive in the country every summer. So, you can see how viewing Chick-fil-A would be seen as anathema.

Also every Kenyan chicken and chips shop should open a branch in New York and give Chick-fil-A a run for its money. Mc Frys (which a friend here claims is pronounced M.C. Frys, not sure thats correct but I like it) would make a killing. Jill Filipovic (@JillFilipovic) April 13, 2018

Chick-fil-A isnt evil. It wont degrade New York Citys liberalism, which is already at insufferable levels. I have no doubts that this location will, like the rest of its locations, do well. In the meantime, liberals will be steaming that this Christian-oriented business continues to thrive. That should put a smile on all our faces.
>.I have no doubts that this location will, like the rest of its locations, do well.
Early reports are of lines down the block.
It can’t be said enough, this sort of unhinged ranting is an important part of why Trump won. Encourage these people to keep pushing their message.
Everyone, I mean everyone, freakin HATES lesbians. No one ever listens to those freaking idiots.
Only a Liberal is afraid of a Chicken Sandwich.
True. Theyre Chikins
If we get better, our customers will demand that we get bigger. CFA Founder.
..I doubt that Chick-fil-A would call the cops on black people who may or may not be ordering food. Good Christian conservative principles would dictate a kinder attitude toward people...unlike insane liberal restaurants that preach race, race, and more race.
I’m now a loyal customer.
Good work Lefties.
To a Liberal, eating chicken is cannibalism.
“Only a Liberal is afraid of a Chicken Sandwich.”
That’s just too funny!
If you get in the way of Chick-fil-A customers by just standing around not ordering you might get run over no matter what your race, religion or sex is.
“Only a Liberal is afraid of a Chicken Sandwich.”
They’re afraid to eat their own kind?
Or they’re afraid to eat something that has a higher IQ than they do?
Diversity ain’t for everybody?
Stupidity pours out of your bigoted mouth!
It's fast food, not haute cuisine, but it's consistently fresh, hot, and well prepared.
Wait staff is squeaky clean, well-groomed and polite. Don't know for sure, but it appears no tats or piercings are allowed. Smiles abound.
Do expect to wait. They seem to be very popular and very busy, most times. Lines are long but they move fast.
The local CFA put one over on the homosexual protestors summer before last. They formed a picket line in the hot KS sun, but neglected to supply any water for the protestors. The CFA manager noticed and sent some out to them, in paper cups with CFA's logo emblazoned on them. Front page of next day's paper showed them relaxing and drinking, enjoying CFA's hospitality. Talk about product placement! It made a laughingstock out of the protest...
I ate at a chick/fil-a in College Station TX a couple of weeks ago and it was PACKED. The parking lot was full and it had the longest line in the drive through Ive ever seen. When I commented on the crowd, the person taking my order said they have the record as the busiest in the nation. I got my order in record time.
It's biblical you know: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." Romans 12:20
I doubt the added benefit of seeing your brand in pictures taken of the enemy was on Jesus’s mind, but I’m guessing he enjoyed seeing it.
Cunning runt hits brick wall .......film at 11.
Christians are not creepy but this ideology that Christians are creepy is giving me the, well, creeps.
