Ever since the far-left began complaining about and boycotting Chick-fil-A over its now-deceased founder’s Christian beliefs concerning marriage, the chain has more than doubled its annual sales and opened nearly 600 more locations, growing to be one of the most popular fast-food restaurants in the nation, a recent analysis by the Journal & Courier reads.
Christian Headlines reported that according to a new analysis, “Chick-fil-A’s annual sales have more than doubled since LGBT and liberal groups began calling for a boycott of the restaurant in 2012.”
In detail, after the CEO’s controversial comments about same-sex marriage in 2012, sales totaled $4.6 billion, up from $4.1 billion the year before. In 2018, sales totaled $10.46 billion, making it the third-largest restaurant in the United States behind McDonald’s ($38.5 billion) and Starbucks ($20.5 billion).”
“Not only have they doubled their sales in the last few years, but they have won the prize for the fast-food establishment with the highest customer service rating the last four years running,” Glenn T. Stanton, director of global family formation studies at Focus on the Family, told Christian Headlines. “Bigoted businesses do not tend to rate well in customer satisfaction. Chick-fil-A was won this vaulted spot because it is their pleasure to serve everyone who comes through their doors and do so with all graciousness,” Stanton said.
On top of the sales bumps, the chain has added 700 new restaurants in the span of those seven years.
And all this despite years and years and years of being maligned, smeared, and attacked by everyone from congressional Democrats to Hollywood actors and the mainstream media, Chick-fil-A clearly continues to dominate and has repeatedly been named America’s favorite restaurant, including in 2019.
