The social justice warriors of the left have repeatedly called for boycotts against America’s favorite fast food restaurant, Chick-fil-A, primarily due to their traditional views on marriage and Christian values that go against the left’s twisted dogma.
But it doesn’t seem to be working!
Just 2 weeks ago, Chick-fil-A opened their first location in Canada, causing outrage and protests among the left. Despite this, the line was so long it wrapped around the entire restaurant!
If anything, the boycotts from leftists and the LGBTQ community have only increased, not detracted from, Chick-fil-A’s popularity.
In fact, ever since the boycotts started back in 2012, Chick-fil-A’s sales have more than DOUBLED!
Here's more on the specifics of Chick-fil-A's big boom in revenue since the left started hating the fast food chain, from Breitbart:
Protests against Chick-fil-A began around 2011 when Chairman and CEO Dan T. Cathy voiced support for traditional marriage. Since then, protests against the fast-food chains have taken place around the country.
Most recently, faculty at the University of Kansas called for Chick-fil-A to be banned from campus, calling the chain a “bastion of bigotry.” Last week, faculty and students at Purdue University called for a similar ban on the chain.
Despite the protests, Chick-fil-A has experienced massive growth since 2011. A new report from the Lafayette Journal & Courier claims that the chain has doubled its sales since 2011, reaching $10.5 billion in revenue and adding 700 locations. Now, Chick-fil-A is the third-largest fast-food chain after only Starbucks and McDonalds. There are only 2,400 Chick-fil-A restaurants compared to more than 14,000 Starbucks locations. In a 2018 survey, Americans teenagers ranked the chicken-based franchise as their favorite fast-food chain, stealing the top spot from Starbucks.
Life Site News also stated:
Persistent cries of “homophobia” have done little to prevent Chick-fil-A’s rise among the fast-food ranks, and recently-highlighted data show the Christian chain’s business is making twice the money it was when the LGBT attacks first started.
For years, LGBT activists have attempted to brand Chick-fil-A as “hateful” due to CEO Dan Cathy’s stated opposition to same-sex “marriage” and the company’s donations to social conservative groups such as Family Research Council and Focus on the Family. But while the company has no shortage of detractors in politics and media, the complaints have fallen on deaf ears among actual customers.
Chick-fil-A enjoys tremendous success and an overwhelmingly positive reputation due to its service as well as its charitable bent and volunteerism during tragedies and disasters. Furthermore, for all the “anti-LGBT” branding, many homosexual employees and customers have attested to positive, welcoming experiences with Chick-fil-A.
Nation’s Restaurant News (NRN) ranked Chick-fil-A as the nation’s third largest restaurant chain in July, and an analysis by Restaurant Business shows the company’s system sales steadily climbing from $4.6 billion in 2012 (the year Cathy’s position on same-sex “marriage” went public) to more than twice that amount in 2018 at $10.5 billion – potentially indicating that part of the chain’s success stems from Christian and conservative Americans’ desire to reward the chain for its values and rebuke its attackers.
