    The Tampa Bay Times reported on Thursday that a Democrat is “crying foul over Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark's decision to hold voter registration drives at nine Chick-fil-A locations.” “Chick-fil-A, the fast-food chain known for putting faith ahead of profits, supports conservative causes,” the Times reported. […] In Florida, Susan McGrath, leader of the Stonewall Democrats and head of the Pinellas Democratic Party, said the decision to use Chick-fil-A would be similar to a Democratic supervisor of elections holding the event at Planned Parenthood, according to the Times. …

    Chick-Fil-A sandwiches abound at the Democratic National Convention, and some of the delegates aren’t happy about it. Conference attendees can buy Chick-Fil-A sandwiches both inside and outside the convention arena. Joe Sacco, a Democratic delegate from Nevada who supports Senator Bernie Sanders and attended the LGBT caucus, told The Daily Caller News Foundation he’s unhappy Chick-Fil-A is being served.

    Biz Pac Review ^ | July 10, 2016 | Michael Dorstewitz
    Thursday’s carnage in Dallas, just 200 miles to the north of College Park, elevated Chick-fil-A’s previous act of support for police to what could be seen in the future as an act of courage. The popular fast food chain Chick-fil-A has never been a stranger to controversy, and has always weathered the storm with self-confidence and a cheery smile. But a position at one of its Texas locations that was noble last November could put the sandwich-making outfit on the receiving end of more than mere hate speech in this environment — it could lead to violence, if recent events...

    Democrats have been making a dramatic scene in the House this week by staging a “sit-in” with hopes to force a vote on further gun control laws, spurred by Omar Mateen’s attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando. But even politicians get a little hungry when they are busy sitting on the floor, so they decided to call for some delivery—and conservatives will probably get a kick out of what they ordered. TMZ caught interns bringing in a big cart of Chick-fil-A for the famished protesters.

    This Is Why You Didn’t Hear What Chick-fil-A Did in Orlando After the Mass Shooting Right after the mass shooting at an Orlando nightclub, there was an outpouring of support from people and businesses in the area and around the country. People came to give blood to victims, and restaurants gave food. One particular business in the food industry – Chick-fil-A – gave away free iced tea and chicken sandwiches to those helping out victims. And they even opened on Sunday to do it. A Chick-fil-A spokesman told the Huffington Post: “While we have a corporate policy that firmly states...

    The left-leaning news media are always Johnny-on-the-Spot to criticize Chick-fil-A because its owners happen to be pro-traditional marriage. But when it opens its heart (and its doors) in the wake of a national tragedy, they suddenly put their blinders on. On Sunday, following the bloody massacre at an Orlando nightclub that caters to gays, several nearby locations of the restaurant chain opened its doors to deliver sandwiches and drinks to police and EMTs at the crime scene, and to those donating blood. In case you think Chick-fil-A was profiting from a tragedy, think again. They accepted no payment for their...

    Chick Fil A has made national news for it’s owners’ stance on gay marriage. Anytime they do something even remotely non-PC, their supposed slip up goes viral. Hash tags pop up all over the place. So why is that what they have done in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting hasn’t received a single mention on the mainstream new outlets? It’s probably because people like New York City Mayor, Bill DeBlasio might have to eat crow instead of chicken. DeBlasio has said that Chick Fil A spreads a message of hate. Not so yesterday.

    Chick-fil-A is rolling out a new app that will let customers avoid waiting in line at the register. The app, called Chick-fil-A One, will allow customers to order and pay for their food in advance, then pick it up at a counter designated for online orders. That's big news for fans of Chick-fil-A, which is typically slammed with customers during regular meal times, making long lines inevitable. The app will also allow users to customize and save their favorite orders. Michael Lage, a veteran of Facebook and Google who helped develop the app, says it will change how customers, particularly...

    A few days ago, the Chick-Fil-A restaurant chain came under attack from the hateful and intolerant mayor of the city - Bill DeBlasio. The fact that this chain was founded by and is operated by church-going people who have strong family values and who actually close their restaurants on Sundays evidently irks the mayor to the point that he has made it clear that this restaurant chain is not welcome in "his" city. Evidently it rubs the mayor the wrong way that some executives in this company espouse political and social opinions that are not lock-step with his own views....

"Can you imagine a city where a popular, successful business is singled out and attacked by the mayor who calls for a boycott — all because the business owners let it be known that they operate by Christian principles and believe in God's definition of marriage?"

The popular chicken restaurant is planning to open up a new location in Queens, its fourth to open in New York City. But the liberal mayor argued that the owners of Chick fil-A support groups that promote "hate" against gays. "Chick-fil-A is anti-LGBT," he said in a statement, according to the website DNAInfo.

    When I was a lad, I very much enjoyed the comedy of Cheech & Chong. Tonight, at the Novo by Microsoft theatre in downtown Los Angeles, I got to see them live. Their humor comes from a gentler, and now rather distant, time in our nation’s history, but only one of the many bits actually felt dated. Amid the drug-related and social-observation material came a genuine political surprise. An anti-Trump joke in the opening act fell a little flat, and a few minutes later, when the main act got under way, Cheech asked the audience, “Are there any Donald Trump...

Historically, the famed Southern chicken chain has adamantly refused to open on Sundays, citing a conflict with its Christian values, but widespread customer demand, impending expansion plans, and a still-flagging economy have caused executives to reconsider that policy. “Our customers have been asking for this for a long time, and we just can’t say no any longer,” the source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, explained.

    Chick-fil-A is no place to play chicken. Earlier this week, a drive-thru customer at a Chick-fil-A location in Aiken, S.C. started a ruckus after receiving his order, according to the Aiken Standard. Dissatisfied at the temperature or quality of his waffle fries, he ran over to a drive-thru employee and threw the fries in the worker's face.When a manager rushed out to address the assault, the irate customer grabbed a cane from his car and began hitting her with it. In what sounds like a scene from a bizarre David Lynch flick, passers-by and other customers came to the manager's...

Now, let me tell you what the squawking is really all about: It's a distraction, a feint, a mile-high smokescreen. Spiteful Democrats claim they are upholding progressive "Denver values" by delaying approval of an airport concession contract with the Christian-owned restaurant chain. But the politically correct storm over same-sex marriage (which Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy personally opposes) is convenient cover for the local government's serial mismanagement, bloated spending and shady contracting practices. Denver International Airport concessionaires raked in more than $322...

And by the way, this is one of the less-discussed problems with the perpetual expansion of government into everything. If you can’t do business without government contracts, or without tax exemptions, you inevitably empower someone in the political realm to judge your worthiness to be in business at all. When the Denver City Council chooses a concessionaire for the Denver International Airport, the decision is supposed to...

    I've been listening to the chattering political class on tv and radio lately and their consensus seems to be that what will be the derailment of the Trump express will be his lack of a political organization, the so-called "boots on the ground" that brings out the voters. It is what supposedly cost Mitt Romney the election, not the fact that he was a boring milquetoast. Personally I think that the Donald will benefit from what I call the Chick-fil-A effect.

Jeff Glover, who has operated the Chick-fil-A for 15 years, wanted to remodel the building to accommodate more customers, but didn’t want to hurt his workers. So he continued paying them for the full five months. The restaurant, which reopened this week at West Braker Lane and U.S. 183, is now the largest Chick-fil-A in Austin–and surely the chicken retailer with the biggest heart.

Having the perfect blend of great food and excellent customer service. Fast casual companies like Chick-fil-A are successful because they, "typically offer better ingredients, freshness, and more developed décor," according to the report. Chick-fil-A not only beat all other chains in customer satisfaction, but it also took ACSI's top rating in dining experience as well. The criteria evaluated for this...

Now, 75 years after "Colonel" Harland Sanders first served his original recipe at a six-seat dining table in rural Kentucky, the chain is betting $185 million on a massive, bizarre turnaround campaign in hopes of winning a seat again at the fast-food table. The chain is blasting out TV ads, offering new Southern-style grub...

    Students at Johns Hopkins University voted this week to ask the school’s administrators to prevent Chick-fil-A from opening a store on campus. Citing Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s opposition to gay marriage, students said the presence of the chain on campus would be a microaggression against LGBT members of the community, Eater reports. Though the Student Government Association approved the resolution, the move is purely hypothetical: there’s no indication that the Johns Hopkins administration was in negotiations with Chick-fil-A, though some students had wondered whether the chain might open a location in a new building under construction on campus.

A civil rights lawyer in Decatur, Georgia, made a huge mistake when he dropped hundreds of dollars on the floor at a Chick-fil-A while eating breakfast, but a restaurant employee saved him from losing the cash, WXIA-TV reported. Attorney Victor Long had $1,200 in cash on him — money bound for the bank — on April 1 when he ate breakfast at the restaurant, he told WXIA. “I didn’t even think about backtracking, because I figured anybody who found the money, the way people need...

    The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) has a beef with fast-food chains, particularly when they’re doing business with public hospitals. The D.C.-based non-profit recently surveyed more than 200 hospitals around the U.S. and found that 40 of them—around 20 percent—housed a fast-food restaurant. Chick-fil-A leads the charge with 20 hospital locations, followed by McDonald’s (18) and Wendy’s (5); donut and coffee spot Tim Horton’s also makes an appearance. In terms of state saturation, Texas and Florida tie with seven hospitals apiece. The report also points out some surprising anecdotal examples, like the McDonald’s attached to the Children’s Hospital of Georgia, which offers...

    An ex-CFO and Chick-fil-A protestor who lost his job after posting a video rant against one of the chain's employees has since lost his home and lives on food stamps. Adam Mark Smith, 37, who worked for an Arizona-based medical device manufacturer, was shamed after the 2012 YouTube video was posted showing him berating employee Rachel Elizabeth. The video which expressed his disdain over the firm's anti-gay marriage stance went viral, and left him unemployed and forced to lose his home. Nearly three years later, the married father of four is still searching for a job and his family previously...

    A former executive of a medical device company says a video of him bullying a Chick-fil-A employee has destroyed his career. Adam Smith once earned more than $200,000 a year as the chief financial officer of Tuscon-based Vante. The married father of four is now unemployed and living on food stamps three years after his videotaped rant went viral online. In the video, Smith berates a Chick-fil-A employee for working at a company that supports anti-gay organizations. "Chick-Fil-A is a hateful corporation," Smith said. "I don't know how you live with yourself and work here. I don't understand it. This...

    (Newser) – Things haven't gone too well for the former CFO who criticized Chick-fil-A in a video he posted on YouTube. Unable to find lasting work, 37-year-old Adam Smith is living on food stamps with his wife and four kids in the RV they call home, he tells ABC News. "I think people are scared," Smith says of potential employers. "I think people are scared that it could happen again." Back in the summer of 2012, as thousands of people were opposing Chick-fil-A's stance on gays, Smith rolled into a Chick-fil-A drive-thru for a free glass of water and slammed...

    My, what a difference two and a half years and a nasty, self righteous video by a nasty, self righteous man make. In the summer of 2012, an individual who could only accept diversity, pluralism and multi culturalism as long as it agreed with his politically correct notions, posted a video of himself harassing a Chick-Fil-A order taker on Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day. That was the day those who actually believed in diversity, pluralism and multi culturalism chose to support the fast food chain against those who disagreed with the founder who opposed gay marriage. The founder didn't say he would...
  • If Starbucks Can Preach About Race, Can Chick-fil-A, Hobby Lobby Preach About Christian Values?

    The more the general society rejects, spurns, and ignores the biblical pulpit, the greater the preachy culture expands. Starbucks' recent attempt to turn a coffee cup into a communion chalice is an example. The "communion" signified upon the cup was not about humans and God, but about humans "communing" with one another regarding race. The company, a denomination within the religion of Neo-Progressivism, launched its "Race Together" campaign to get us all set right on human relations. The PR didn't work, and so Starbucks had to dismantle the "Race Together" pulpit. However, that won't halt its preachiness. Jim Olson, a...

  • Chick-fil-A Owner Declines Homeless Man’s Request to Work for Food, Does Him One Better

    The owner of a Birmingham, AL, Chick-fil-A is making the faith-based company proud with his selfless actions and Christian attitude. When Mark Meadows went out of his way to help a local homeless man, he never expected it would garner him national attention. Meadows took the ‘do unto others’ adage to a whole new level when a homeless man entered the Chick-fil-A store he owns and operates. The downtrodden man offered to work for a hot meal, but Meadows did him one better. He gave him a chicken sandwich and a pair of his own gloves. A customer who witnessed...
