    Chick-fil-A to develop into nation’s third-largest quick meals restaurant Chick-fil-A is cashing in. A brand new 2017 gross sales report exhibits the king of hen is rolling within the dough and is way exceeding its rival quick meals chains like McDonald’s and KFC. Look out, world. New Yorkers have found that their metropolis has 4 Chick-fil-A eating places – together with the world’s largest. Phrase bought out final week in a New Yorker journal article titled “Chick-fil-A’s creepy infiltration of New York Metropolis.” The creator is Dan Piepenbring, described as being from Brooklyn....

As has been well documented, the left is hating on Chick-fil-A...again.  No one should be surprised by this, least of all Chick-fil-A.  Back in 2012, Chick-fil-A became a prime target of the left when its then-president and chief operating officer, Dan Cathy – son of founder Truett Cathy and now the chairman and CEO of Chick-fil-A – gave a benign interview to Baptist Press (the Cathys are longtime members of New Hope Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Ga.). The following...
  • Chick-fil-A and the Christian Infiltration

    the Weekly Standard ^ | 20 Apr, 2018 | Barton Swaim
    Even the headline of the short essay in the New Yorker was meant to offend, and it did: “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.” The piece, by Dan Piepenbring, has been read, attacked, defended, and ridiculed by far more people than ordinarily read the New Yorker. If the editors’ goal was to attract online readers, they succeeded. Piepenbring makes no effort to veil his contempt for the famously clean and friendly fast-food restaurant, of which there are now four in Manhattan. He visited the grand opening of the largest and most recently built one, on Fulton Street in Lower...

    We’re 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, it’s a delicious fast food chain. Two, because progressives hate it—you know it’s 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 couldn’t 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,...

    Subtitle: Liberals can’t stand the success of a Christian-run company selling folks fried chicken sandwiches successfully with a smile. Last month, Chick-fil-A opened its fourth franchise in Manhattan. Even though customers seem thrilled and the company appears to be thriving, some on the Left aren’t happy. On Friday, the New Yorker published a story with a headline only they could love: “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City.” Not to be outdone, they tweeted an even worse headline, pulled directly from the article.
  • New Yorker Magazine Decries Chick-fil-A's 'Creepy Pervasive Christian Traditionalism'

    Christian Post ^ | 04/16/2018 | Anugrah Kumar
    An article in The New Yorker magazine scorns the popularity of Chick-fil-A, the fast food chicken chain with Christian values, in New York City, calling it "creepy pervasive Christian traditionalism." The author says its presence is "awash with cash, Christ, and evangelizing Cows." "The brand's arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism," writes Dan Piepenbring, overlooking the fact that its first store opened four years ago. The article seeks to "warn" New Yorkers that Chick-fil-A's corporate purpose "still begins with the words 'to glorify God,' and that proselytism thrums below the...

    The New Yorker approaches topics like a shallow teenager: Slap a disparaging word onto a popular topic and bingo! You have journalism. Among the long, hallowed list of people, places and things the magazine has found “creepy,” the publication’s latest target is – surprise! – the Christianity of the Chik-fil-A franchise. Blogger Dan Piepenbring found the franchise’s “pervasive Christian traditionalism” with its statue of “Jesus washing a disciple’s feet” and its policy to close on Sundays just too much. Then again, The New Yorker has called many things “creepy.” From Miley Cyrus’ return to sobriety to IKEA’s aesthetic to children’s...

    ATLANTA - Channel 2 Action News has obtained exclusive video of a fight between several women in a Chick-fil-A drive-thru Wednesday morning. According to police, officers were called to the Chick-fil-A on Bill Kennedy Way SE just after 9 a.m. because of the fight.

Investigators said both the suspect and the victim met with police and explained that they had been involved in the...

    Another big one that got away: like many before him, yesterday’s killer was “known to the FBI.” Last fall, a Mississippi bail bondsman and frequent YouTube vlogger noticed an alarming comment left on one of his videos. "I'm going to be a professional school shooter," said a user named Nikolas Cruz. The YouTuber, 36-year-old Ben Bennight, alerted the FBI, emailing a screenshot of the comment to the bureau's tips account… Agents with the bureau's Mississippi field office got back to him "immediately," Bennight said, and conducted an in-person interview the following day, on Sept. 25. – BuzzFeed I can...

    Eater, a food and restaurant review blog, is pretty much thumbs down on Chick-fil-A. Not that they have anything against their food, it’s their lack of SJW credentials, their failure to conform to correct group-think with respect to same sex marriage that earned them the distinction of being voted off the food island. I’m here to report that the increasingly ubiquitous chain serves a pretty good fast-food breakfast, a pretty great frozen coffee, and a pretty average chicken sandwich. I’m also here to report that it’s the only top 10 quick-service restaurant that doesn’t mention sexual orientation in its online...

    Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed had a problem. How do you feed thousands of stranded airline passengers at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport with no electricity. It turns out the answer was pretty simple: call Chick-fil-A. Normally Chick-fil-A restaurants are closed on Sundays so employees can attend church and spend time with their families. Click here for America’s fastest-growing, FREE, Conservative newsletter – The Todd Starnes Report! But when the lights went out at the international airport — the mayor needed immediate help in feeding folks with no place to go. So he called Dan Cathy, the chief executive officer of Chick-fil-A.

    Chick-fil-A, the fast food chicken chain with Christian values, is the No. 1 fast food chain in the nation. Even though the restaurant is closed on Sundays when most of its competitors are open, Chick-fil-A still manages to generate more revenue than its competitors, Business Insider reported Thursday. "To determine the most popular fast-food chain in each state, Foursquare looked at which chains received the most visits on average per location in every state based on the total number of visits to each chain divided by the number of locations in that state," Business Insider noted. Many have speculated that...

(The witness) stated, if he panics, then he must be doing something wrong.” The customer then told he flushed the urinal and saw Gray panic when he realized someone else was in the bathroom with him. Gray, who was in a motorized wheelchair at the time, quickly attempted to get dressed and then pulled out a stun gun to keep the customer...

    Liberals love to terrorize children. They were at it again on Tuesday at a Pinellas Park, Florida, Chick Fil A fast food restaurant where a group of knife-wielding vegan protesters staged a mock slaughter of cows inside the chicken-themed restaurant while parents protected their children. The occasion was Chick Fil A’s ‘cow appreciation day’ where customers who dress as a cow are given free food.

    People love Chick-fil-A, the poultry-centric fast-food chain whose corporate purpose is to “glorify God,” and whose strict Sunday closure means that every employee gets at least one day of rest. People love the carnival-like waffle fries, the neonatal ward-like hospitality, the cleanliness on par with a Silicon Valley chip manufacturer, the fresh-squeezed lemonade spiked with soft-serve ice cream, the aromatic peach shakes, the admirably bare-bones fried-chicken sandwich, the viral fan song set to the tune of the Beatles’s “Yesterday,” and the famous Polynesian sauce, an agrodolce condiment that looks like what would happen if a stop sign were melted down...
