Chick-fil-A is growing at such a rapid pace that it is expected to become the third largest fast food chain in the U.S., surpassing competitors like Subway.
From my perspective as a watcher of news, trends and events in America, everything changed for Chick-fil-A on August 1, 2012, the day that Fox News host Mike Huckabee called for a ‘Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day‘ to support the restaurant chain when the Liberal Left attacked them for standing for traditional marriage and Christian values. The event was wildly successful beyond anyone’s dreams and brought Chick-fil-A fully into the national conversation and spotlight. Ever since them, business has been truly booming.
“For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.” Romans 14:7,8 (KJV)
We have reported on Chick-fil-A for many years now, you can visit our CFA article archive here. Recently, CFA was banned from opening a location at the San Antonio airport, and plans for a Chick-fil-A restaurant at the Buffalo Niagara International Airport in New York were nixed back in April. The reason for the bans? Because Chick-fil-A stands for the biblical definition of marriage as being between one man and one woman, and that drives the LGBTQ+P for pedophile liberals insane. Waffle fries, you say? Yummy, don’t mind if I do.
Chick-Fil-A to Become Third-Largest Fast Food Chain in U.S.
FROM THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: As the biggest fast-food chains have expanded menus to attract new customers, Chick-fil-A Inc. has gained ground with a different strategy: its focus on chicken sandwiches.
Since its founding in Atlanta in 1967 by entrepreneur Truett Cathy, Chick-fil-A’s signature item has been its breaded chicken-breast sandwich served with pickles on a buttered toasted bun. The company sells breakfast and salads, too, but its relatively simple menu stands out, compared with its fast-food rivals.
Now five decades later, the closely held company this year is poised to become the third-biggest U.S. restaurant chain by sales behind McDonald’s Corp. MCD -0.39% and Starbucks Corp. , according to food-service consultancy Technomic Inc. The growth reflects Chick-fil-A’s expansion over the past decade, as well as consumers’ broader turn toward chicken.
“We’ve been pretty consistent in how, over multiple decades, we’re going to take it slow and steady,” Mark Moraitakis, a Chick-fil-A senior director, said about the company’s expansion. “It’s paid off for us.”
Sales from Chick-fil-A’s restaurants have tripled over the past decade, reaching $10.2 billion last year, Technomic said, even though the chain is closed on Sundays, a practice implemented by its conservative Christian founder.

NTEB is located in Saint Augustine, Florida, and it’s in my opinion the most amazing city in America, along with being the oldest. So I created this Instagram channel to give you a local’s view of life here in Old City. I would love it if you would follow me there, will follow back! I posted this about our local Chick-fil-A a few days ago, my friend Wayne owns it.

When last we saw our friends down at our local Chick-fil-A, we were being welcomed by owner Wayne as the first non-employee to walk through the doors of the newly redesigned restaurant. So craving a chicken sandwich deluxe with American cheese and some waffle fries this evening, I thought it might be fun to show you what it’s like to go through the new drive-through at our awesome Chick-fil-A. Enjoy! #jeepwrangler #jeepin #exploreoldcity #saintaugustine #chickfila #cfastaug

Chick-fil-A, also known for its customer service, has nearly doubled its store count to about 2,400 restaurants since 2007. The company now has locations from Manhattan to Hollywood. Its growing presence will test whether consumers will stick with the chain as they have in the South, Chick-fil-A’s historic base.
“I don’t know if it will have such an abiding loyalty in other regions,” said Sara Senatore, a restaurant analyst at Sanford Bernstein.
The company has met resistance when moving into other areas, in part because of public reaction to comments made in 2012 by Chief Executive Dan Cathy, son of the company’s founder, regarding the CEO’s opposition to same-sex marriage. Advocates called for a boycott and organized protests at Chick-fil-A restaurants, while conservative customers expressed support.
This year, officials in San Antonio stopped the chain from opening a location in the city’s airport because of the views on sexual orientation. The concessions company at the airport serving Buffalo, N.Y., dropped Chick-fil-A as a potential tenant at that facility after facing protests over the same issue. READ MORE

When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,832 people on our daily mailing list gave $4.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,781 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 300% of our goal. The same goes for our 14,000 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
