Posted on 07/28/2012 11:21:23 AM PDT by COBOL2Java
Thank you for your interest in Chick-fil-A and Dan Cathy, however we are not scheduling interviews for Mr. Cathy at this time. I would like to provide this statement, and I hope this will be a useful resource for you.
Corporate Public Relations
Chick-fil-A is a family-owned and family-led company serving the communities in which it operates. From the day Truett Cathy started the company, he began applying biblically-based principles to managing his business. For example, we believe that closing on Sundays, operating debt-free and devoting a percentage of our profits back to our communities are what make us a stronger company and Chick-fil-A family.
The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.
Our mission is simple: to serve great food, provide genuine hospitality and have a positive influence on all who come in contact with Chick-fil-A.
I think this whole kerfluffle is going to backfire on the progressives. It would be fine with me if every McDonald's was replaced by a Chick Fil A.
The statement is tolerant, open minded, reasonable, and therefore will be unacceptable to the left.
You can no longer run a business in the communist held areas unless you pledge support to the gay lesbian transgender bisexual queer obamacare islamophile redistributionist liberation movement.
“I think this whole kerfluffle is going to backfire on the progressives.”
It would appear that it is. I think the gay Stalinists will rue the day they made an issue of this.
Just wait until the Libtards realize that In & Out Burger prints Bible verses on the bottom of their Soft Drink Cups and on their Paper Wrappers.
I stopped at the one by Walmart yesterday and it was packed, with the drive thru line around the building. If I'm in that part of town later today, I'm going to stop again.
No doubt they are going to make C-F-A a boatload of money. According to some reports business has already picked up from their usual brisk sales and it's not even Wednesday yet. Wait till thousands upon thousands of us that have never eaten there get our first experience.
Does In & Out really do that? Another place to visit!
My son and family are vacationing in northern California and my grandson discovered In & Out. Apparently at his insistence they ate every meal there for a week. Wish we had one in the Houston area.
we plan to let them know we SUPPORT MR. CATHY...and COMMEND THEM FOR CLOSING ON SUNDAYS, We have a local diner closed on Sunday as well...as the Lords Day to spend with your families...that is so commendable... When I was a kid, so long ago...all business's were closed on Sunday...we need to return to that...
Hey Fans. Another rumor related to Chick-fil-A that is currently in the media is related to the Jim Henson Kid's Meal prizes. We want to set the facts straight. Chick-fil-A made the choice to voluntarily withdraw the Jim Henson Kid's Meal puppets for potential safety concerns for our customers on Thursday, July 19. On July 20, Chick-fil-A was notified of the Jim Henson Company's decision to no longer partner with us on future endeavors.
For example, we believe that closing on Sundays, operating debt-free and devoting a percentage of our profits back to our communities are what make us a stronger company and Chick-fil-A family.
Why you evil hate filled intolerant people that is just so, just so.. Oh crap. That is all good stuff.. No what and I going to do!
The fascists really must have an almighty opinion of themselves and their beliefs. I'd sue the bastards.
On the other hand, lots of non-libs, ie; conservatives, Pubbies and Indies must realize how scary these dictates are. Suppose any of them supported a position on anything which was in disfavor with local political leadership. Chilling.
Vote for more of them at your own risk. That ain't their America.
Chick Fil-A protestors ought to look into the fact that cows are used in their tv commercials to the exclusion of bulls so obviously they are sexist and deserve to be bullcotted.
A very special thanks to Boston mayor Tom Menino for making me aware of Chick-Fil-A. Enjoyed lunch at the Burlington Mall
CFA today. Thanks Mumbles!
First off, I have a couple of gay relatives. And even if I didn’t, I’m a pretty tolerant guy. But enough is enough. My tolerance does not extend to bullies. If one doesn’t toe the line on every single item on their agenda, and march in lockstep, one is a bigot and must be destroyed.
I would support CFA except for one issue: I am not a big chicken sandwich fan.
The one at the mall food court had the longest line there. Plenty busy.
Forever 21 ( teen clothing ) puts, “John 3:16” on its check-out bags....
In Texas, it was the LAW!
Think of a better plan chiller. According to others they keep the place immaculate. Your bag will be in the trash faster than Rosie on a doughnut.
so try their SHAKES....
MY FAVORITE....BANANA AND STRAWBERRY...YUMMY
Ditto. The place would heve never crossed my mind.
CFA has great milkshakes. Also you could get a salad, soup, or nuggets. Everything tastes great.
I’ve been watching their Facebook page. Every once in a while the Homosexual lobby posts some hateful things.
I think he should invite communities who would welcome business like his and the jobs he has to offer to let him know and he will have his pick of places to go where the people will support him. He doesn’t need to serve areas where he isn’t appreciated. I wish we had one around here - I’d support them with my lunch money even though I don’t usually eat chicken out, just to support their right to free speech. This could be the best thing that ever happened to his business. When traveling, I will always go to Chick-Fil-A now because of this.
Their milkshakes are like crack cocaine, once you start having them, you just want more and more. Had a chocolate shake with my spicy chicken sandwich for lunch today.
And it will be in the trash before you can count to 3. I've never seen more immaculate restaurants that CFA.
And their customer service is incredible. I walk with a cane, and when I went in for take out the other day, the girl behind the counter was just standing there, holding my bag. I asked if that was my order, and she said yes, she was just waiting for me to start out and carry my order to my car! I told her that it really wasn't necessary, and I was really shocked at the offer.
I menionted in another post that I went there for the first time the other day, and when I mentioned the fact to the franshise owner, he stepped around the counter, pointed out and described every item on the menu, taking the time I never would have expected. When I went back to the counter to place my order, as I was pulling out my cash, he told me that it would be "on him!" I've been back twice in less than a week, using my own money!
There is no chick in our area. I am going to call the one in the next state and buy the next lucky order in the cash register their meal via credit card. Maybe even twice.
That's the key here isn't it. The owners of CFA don't discriminate, do nothing that anyone could confuse with being exclusionary, and contribute greatly to the communities they serve. They don't put up barriers in their hiring, nor whom they serve.
Those that are attacking CFA and the family that runs it are opposed to the families personal beliefs. Think about that for a moment. They're not being attacked for their deeds, actions, or something they did. They're being attacked for their RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. And we see the left doing this over and over again.
The days when liberals claimed "I may disagree with what you say, but will fight for your right to say it" are long gone. Today, their motto is "I disagree with what you believe, so don't even THINK of saying it. I'm right and good, so you must be wrong and evil. Your beliefs should be outlawed, but in case I can't make your thought illegal, I will defame you with lies and fight to destroy you and anyone who thinks like you." Leftists have a long history of taking this to the next step, which results in "reeducation camps," gulags, and concentration camps.
If anyone is a Yelp member please leave a 5 star review for the Chick-Fil-A in Hollywood on Sunset Blvd. Supporting Chick-Fil-A helps by reviewing too:
That’s it!!! I’m heading out to CFA right now!!!!
Besides the incredible hottie, Anna Kooiman, mentioned that she LOVES the peach shakes, and I just saw they’re serving them, according to the local web site!
I might try that “Chargrilled & Fruit Salad.” It looks amazing. And a peach shake!
I agree. But from a business point of view, he should take the action Jesus recommended - shake the dust of the town off his feet. It will be more profitable to do business elsewhere and the towns that rejected him will be the losers for it.
