    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...

    Several Christian businesses and institutions including fast food giant Chick-fil-A, Wycliffe Bible Translators and Compassion International are featured among Forbes' 2017 list of America's Best Midsize Employers. "Each year, Forbes seeks to discover which companies operating in the U.S. today are best at making their employees feel happy, inspired, and well-compensated," the publication explained in presenting a list of top 800 employers. Partnering with Statista, a big statistics database and consumer research firm based in Hamburg, Germany, Forbes created two categories of employers. Large employers with more than 5,000 employees and midsize employers with between 1,000 and 5,000 employees. Statista...
  • Catholic School Banishes Chick-fil-A (Fordham University)

    I was about to dip a nugget in some Chick-fil-A Sauce the other day when I received an urgent message on my phone. “Student Groups Shut Down Chick-fil-A Proposal,” one headline blared. “Catholic University Caves to LGBT Pressure, Rejects Chick-fil-A,” screamed another. A cavalcade of anti-chicken headlines blurted from my phone – but the most succinct came from Food and Wine magazine:  “Fordham University Rejects Chick-fil-A after LGBT Student Concerns.”However incredulous it may have been, the Jesuits had indeed banished the Chick-fil-A cows. As I pondered that reality, I nearly choked on a delicious, hand-spun Chick-fil-A Icedream milkshake topped off with whipped...

    Chick-fil-A is coming to the food court at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but some students are not happy about it. Several students at the Catholic university have complained the fried chicken restaurant, which has the reputation of being extremely kind and generous to customers, will make them feel unsafe, Red Alert Politics reports. “Chick-fil-A has a questionable history on civil rights and human rights,” student senator Niko Martini told campus newspaper The Duke. “I think it’s imperative the university chooses to do business with organizations that coincide with the [university’s] mission and expectations they give students regarding diversity and...

    While his father was busy insisting that U.S.-Russia relations would survive this latest round of frost, Donald Trump Jr. was tweeting about fast food on college campuses. Well, one campus in particular: Pittsburgh's Duquesne University, where LGBT students and their supporters say they fear the addition of a Chick-fil-A restaurant to a campus food court because of the company's "questionable history on civil rights and human rights."

    Students at Duquesne University are petitioning their school to reconsider a plan to bring Chick-fil-A to campus, arguing the fast-food restaurant’s support for traditional marriage would create an unsafe environment for gay students. . . . Rachel Coury, president of the Duquesne gay-straight alliance, said she fears Chick-fil-A will roll back efforts to create a safe environment for gay students on campus. “I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ+ community,” Ms. Coury told The Duke. “So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A … maybe people will feel that...

    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 Did WHAT After Gay Club Shooting? Why Isn’t This Viral?

    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. In a shocking move,...

    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...
  • Chick-Fil-A Thrives in NYC Despite Mayor DeBlasio's Intolerance

    05/10/2016 12:43:46 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 48 replies
    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....

    The Rev. Franklin Graham has strongly condemned Mayor Bill de Blasio's call for a boycott of popular fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, which is opening a new location in the New York City borough of Queens, just because its Christian owners believe in the biblical definition of marriage. "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?" Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and Billy...
