This from a company that opened in an NFL stadium.  But they still close the store on Sundays.  Top flight Mensa material right here.

Anytime I hear that a company plans on "paying homage" to something, I translate that to "profiting off the tragedy that took place."

A SECOND WAFFLE FRY HAS HIT THE HONEY MUSTARD SAUCE!
 
2017-09-21 04:09:38 PM  
A building or a sandwich?
 
2017-09-21 04:16:52 PM  
Their fries are a national tragedy.

Too soon?

Oh look.  More people not from NY trying to profit off our tragedy.

Seriously, fark Chick-Fil-A.

Stop talking about it, stop giving them legitimacy.

They're bigots, and should not be patronized.
 
2017-09-21 05:54:54 PM  
I remember seeing Chik-Fil-A dancing on the tops of buildings in NJ, celebrating the towers falling. This is an abomination & must be stopped. NO GROUND ZERO CHICK-FIL-A.
 
2017-09-21 06:44:09 PM  
Chick-fil-A is one of those regional fast food chains that is actually crap but is somehow beloved by the jerks who grew up eating it.  Now if NYC gets a Wataburger they'll really have something to be happy about.

If by regional, you mean nationwide and Canada, that would be correct.

so it'll be a mecca for tourists wanting to show how much they personally suffered on 9/11 from their isolated communities 1000 miles from where it really happened while supporting their stigginit chicken franchise

/maybe not say 'mecca'
//that might scare them away
 
2017-09-21 07:22:45 PM  
Do they anticipate so much traffic that they need a department store sized location?

Meh

I'm not disagreeing, but I've had better

I wonder how long they'll stay in business here

Probably awhile yuppies are weird and won't go to first gen places, but will go to out of town crap

It's parked on ground zero.  That means they're looking for tourists.

Overpriced and crappy chicken.  Yeah the seasoning's divine but the serving is pathetic.

Halal Guys. They started as a food cart on 53rd and 6th, and have since become a franchise.

Shh, don't tell them that the term "alcohol" is of Arabic origin.

They're not bad at all.  Pretty decent for food cart fare.  They've kinda become a bit boring and standardized now that they've become a chain and do central distribution - you kind find better guys doing it on their own.

Finally, I have a reason to visit my wife at her job. ::rtfa:: Oh nevermind they opened one in Queens already, so back to having no good reason for going to the city.

I'm afraid not.  Not one single person I saw or talked to on 9/11 mentioned it.  I didn't even realize the date til 3 people from down south texted me to give their best wishes.

Meh. You can say that White Castle is a shiatty midwestern regional chain but they're ubiquitous in NY and NJ and have been for decades. Chipotle was able to expand way faster than Moe's, the NYS-based burrito chain with the corn soup and tortilla chips. Sonic opened a Long Island location a few years ago and it went so well they added two more just recently.

See this is the sort of shiat.  I didn't use the single person possessive, I used the plural possessive: our.  Yes: our.  Were you there?  Did you fight your way down into the quarantine zone to find people you love?  Cause I farking did.

The people calling my home a rat piss infested city are exactly the same people claiming this tragedy was theirs too.

Yeah just screw all those widowed and who lost fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters...they suffered nowhere near as badly as you.

Oh FFS, enough with 9/11 already, Christ. Just be open on Sundays. Saturday is the Sabbath anyways, you heathens.

Truett Cathy was quoted as saying they are closed on Sundays not for religious reasons but simply because it beefs up Monday sales.

It came across as no one outside of New York being affected and you damn well know that is not at all the case.

So if you didn't mean it that way, sorry. If you did, sorry not sorry.

I don't see the problem. The real estate in that area is so farken expensive you're not going to get anything other than ultra corporate place in that space with a high turn over. I mean maybe a Morimoto or a Guy Fieri could do it for a 100 dollar a head on a four top...but they have Time Square.

While I was leaving in Georgia, I had several people talk to me about Chick-fil-A almost as if eating there was a religious experience. Seriously, for them, it was not just the best fast food chain in the world, it was the best restaurant ever.

So one day, I saw one at the mall, tried one if their sandwiches, and then after biting into it wondered what the fark they were talking about.
