I can't stand Chik-Fil-A chicken (or any fast food chicken, really) but their breakfast biscuits are the Holy Grail of early morning fast food. As near as I can tell, each one is made with a stick of butter, 1/2 pound of salt, and just enough flour to make a shape in the oven. I had my first one three years ago, but I'll still make a point to stop at a Chik-Fil-A for breakfast if I'm near one, hungry, and it's early enough. Unfortunately, I don't live near any, so it's usually a road trip treat.

Honestly, gays should learn how to win these little tiffs. And really, that's all is because no one cares about Chick Fil A's politics, not even the people who get their donation money.

When you're going up against a mall food court staple that dishes out cheap chicken, you have to appeal to people's stomachs. Why? Because no one cares about Chick Fil A, all they want is cheap fried chicken. Get KFC to give away a free chicken wing to people who sign a petition or something.

The only reason Chick Fil A has any money to donate is because it's filling a niche. If you want them to broken and scream your name, you must beat them at their own game. Start a competing chicken chain, keep the politics on the DL, and focus on cheap and delicious and in no time you'll have Chick Fil A money to toss around to the people you support.

I can hate the chain's politics while still enjoying their food. They make a damn tasty chicken salad sandwich, and their chicken biscuits for breakfast are to die for. Also, their milkshakes are really, really good.

Well, KFC, Bojangles and Popeye's haven't managed to crack this nut yet. I think part of it, even if people don't realize it, is that the Chik-Fil-A franchise must spend some serious money on customer service training, or at the very least, basic cleaning training. I've never been to a dirty one. No one has ever been rude to me at a Chik-Fil-A. Granted, I don't hit fast food chicken that often, but there's a noticeable difference in service between CFA and the rest of them.

Boston Market had a good thing going for a while, but they've gone downhill.

It's farking food. Food we cram into our face holes. I hate my parents' politics, but I still give them money when they need it, and eat Sunday dinner at their house every week. I'm not religious either, but I'm not going to stop eating there occasionally just because they're closed on Sundays since apparently God said you can't have chicken sandwiches on the Sabbath.

Again, it's farking food.

Lsherm: but there's a noticeable difference in service between CFA and the rest of them.

Chick Fil A is based "on the Bible" according to the founder. That book has nothing about running a chicken restaurant in it, though. So you can translate that to mean "Run by a starch collared, sober faced conservative owner who places more value on propriety than profit."

Obviously the chain with real customer service will succeed when the dank ones will fail, but I've only ever seen Chick Fil A in a mall. Which is why the fact I know so much about them (read: anything at all) a little strange because I don't often backtrace a freakin' deep fryer full of chicken type disposable restaurant chain's history. The only reason I know anything about Chick Fil A is butthurt articles by people who disagree with them. But here's the thing: NOBODY CARES. All we want is chicken in the mall.

You want to end Chick Fil A's "influence" then you better pony up some better chicken at a lower price point. You can't win a fight like this with politics.

That's fine and all...except I have to make it myself. I make a better ziti than the casual Italian joint down the street, but it doesn't stop from going there about once a week.

THIS

If the money I pay for a chicken sandwich contributes to making their COO rich, and he then takes that money uses it to fund anti-gay groups, I simply cannot give them my money. End of story.

I love cappuccino. I can make it given the right equipment. And I agree with my politics. But I find it is easier to pay the $5 for the cappuccino from Starbucks even if they stock CDs I disagree with.

Make your own restaurant chain called Hot Cox or something. .... That's actually a really good name.

No one actually thinks they'll end their influence with politics/boycott, anymore than idiots have a shot at bankrupting Disney whenever they cast someone construed as gay. Those of us who prefer not to support places like Chik-fil-A (sp) do it for personal ethics. I realize it's impossible to exist without supporting companies that give large sums to groups I find abhorrent, but I can add them to the list as this information becomes available. Conversely, I can choose to patronize businesses I might not have in the past, armed with the same information. Among these is Home Depot, which is a good example because they're usually located next to a Lowe's. In the past I would go to the one involving the least-annoying traffic signal and parking. Now I make sure to go to Home Depot even if it's a mile further down the road. For every company I choose not to support, another gains my dollar.

If all this seems worthless, fine. But I feel better knowing that in my own small way, I'm making a statement and doing my best to be true to my beliefs.

Not even.

Just staff it like any other restaurant with the attractive at the register and the unattractive at the fryer. Sling out tasty wings on the cheap.

Pull a McDonalds and use characters. Your mascot can be a buff rooster with sunglasses named Tony Cox.

I'd go there.

If you say so. I don't think $5 for a box of nuggets is cheap, but maybe we live in different economic realities. Man those are good nuggets though. Each one tastes like it's been kissed by Jesus.

Buying, doing, or just living is in some way supporting something with which you disagree. Humans are innately hypocritical, I say embrace it. Also don't embrace it.

Chick-Fil Gay sandwich:
1)Pull apart the sandwich buns
2)Put you boyfriend's cock on the bottom bun
3) replace top bun on top of boyfriend's cock
 
2012-07-18 11:22:38 PM
Their sandwiches are awesome, but overpriced. Their waffle fries are damned-near inedible, and it strikes me that the reason is they either use the wrong oil, or they change it *too* often, before it has a chance to develop any flavor. The result is a fry with no flavor at all, except for an aftertaste reminiscent of unflavored vegetable oil.

YUCK.

I've never eaten at CFA, but I had a piece of chicken at Church's yesterday. Mighty tasty, since I was starved and it was finger lickin' greasy.

(I abandoned my lo-fat, hi-carb vegan experiment last week.)

The prices are reasonable enough that you can easily donate a dollar to anti-fundie groups each time you go and still enjoy their delicious, delicious nuggets. Net effect is positive. Unless it's football day, those bastards.

This made a lot of sense.

I eat at Chick-Fil-A because I like their food. I'm embarrassed because I don't have the moral gumption to go somewhere else.
I shouldn't be eating there for a lot of reasons...it isn't good for me, their politics, I could save money eating at home, etc, etc. But I do.
Damn my weakness!

I think the Lowe's thing is different from the Chick-fil-a thing. What Lowe's did with the Muslim TV show wasn't villainous...they weren't actively trying to oppress anyone. They just weren't brave. They had a chance to make a stand, but didn't.

Now, Home Depot, as far as I can tell is a pretty progressive company. So I can totally see wanting to spend your money there instead of at Lowe's.

As a side note, Chick-fil-a sponsors a lot of my kid's PBS TV shows. Does this balance out their actively campaigning to keep my kid's aunts from getting married? No. Should it count for something? Sure.

That would be because they generally treat and pay their employees better than corporate fast food chains. Therefore, they get better quality applicants and don't resort to hiring ghetto trash.

Chik-fil-a, Hobby Lobby, and Wal-Mart are on my OH-NO-NO list.

If any friend or family member claims they frequent any of the three they get disowned just like that *snap*; it's like they do not exist.
 
2012-07-18 11:33:04 PM
Of all the problems we face in life, finding an alternative to one fast food chain is one of the simpler ones.

If you support gay rights, you really have no business at the Chick-Fil-A.

Our local Chick-Fil-A used to "cater" lunches for my old company. I was the one who dealt with them, and honestly, they were some of the nicest people to deal with. Their manager was very accommodating and always on top of everything. I didn't know anything about their politics at the time, but it's a shame because I really did like them based on their customer service. Their food is decent too, probably the best fast food chicken place imo.

KFC sucks, Chik Fil A has the best chicken sandwich ever and its no farking contest. I dont give a shiat what they support, its like telling a crackhead they cant support a good crack dealer because they dont support gays............

None of this will make a dent in their sales, people are tired of bending to special interests, if someone doesnt like you then just dont go there, problem solved......

And no, its not like the 60s with the racism, nobody is turning hoses on you to make you get away from chik fil a that is a stupid analogy so just quit, you are dishonoring the blacks and whites who fought so hard for their rights.

There are a lot of reasons for that, but one of them is that Popeye's is a New Orleans chain, and a lot of black people have ties to New Orleans.

I have white family members in New Orleans and they eat Popeye's.

Yep, live and work within 1 mile of the very first location. You will not get the same level of service ANYWHERE for that same money. Yet they get the best employees drawing from the same workforce. Everything else sucks around here as far as fast food.
