Fast food being fast food, most people don't go to Chick-Fil-A for the 5 star atmosphere. They go for a tasty sandwich for lunch or dinner, fast. Chick-Fil-A offers that. And a hand dipped shake, made the old fashioned way.
What keeps drawing me back is the customer service. When the person behind the counter hands you your food and you say, "Thank you", you'll hear something back that you would never hear at 95% of other fast food restaurants. "It was my pleasure."
The employees there seem more cheerful than at, say, a Taco Bell. Where the chalupa is carelessly tossed on a tray and someone shouts, "Number 87!" and walks away.
It's a small touch but it makes a difference. I know it’s their store policy but it's the same policy that many sit down restaurants have as well. Why limit it to those? It's a welcome change in the world of fast food.
If someone doesn't like Chick-Fil-A, don't go to Chick-Fil-A. Kentucky Fried Chicken is open on Sundays. That's the beauty of a free market. Choices.
But for some people, it's not a matter of personal choices. Robert Stacy points out that:
All of this goes to illustrate the totalitarian spirit of gay-rights radicalism, which aims toward the extirpation of dissent.
The radicals will not be satisfied so long as anyone is permitted to disagree with, disapprove of, or criticize homosexuality.
As I've said on here before, liberals have a "If I don't like 'A', you can't like 'A' either" attitude. Astounding the lack of tolerance that exists among those who claim to be the tolerant ones.
Besides, it's food. Most people go because of food. I don't shun Panera Bread because their CEO is a "No Labels" advocate. They have an amazing French Onion Soup and incredible sandwiches. And the food keeps you feeling full long after you have finished eating.
As for me and my house and Chick-Fil-A? I will eat there 9 times out of ten (the tenth time being a Sunday).
