The Left’s most-hated fast-food chain, Chick-fil-A, just keeps winning.
Ever since the LBGTQI boycotts began in 2012 the fast food chain specializing in chicken has doubled its sales.
“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, according to a new analysis,” according to Christian Headlines. “In 2012, when controversy arose over the CEO’s comments about same-sex marriage, 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 and Starbucks.”
The average Chick-fil-A location brought in $4.6 million in annual sales in 2018.
“The only ones who seem to have any kind of beef with the wildly popular chicken restaurant are a minivan-size group of squeaky extremists on the far left,” Glenn Stanton, director of global family formation studies at Focus on the Family, told Christian Headlines. “They’ve concluded that Chick-fil-A is bigoted without the slightest bit of evidence – only that their founders believe in natural marriage. Their position sits very well with the rest of us.”
“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,” Stanton added. “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.”
In addition to doubling sales, the chicken empire added 700 new restaurants in seven years. Journal & Courier noted that in 2018 alone, Chick-fil-A’s sales increased by more than four times that of Starbucks at 16.7 percent.
In fact, they are poised to surpass Starbucks earnings.
“Can they reach $30 billion? I think that’s also a realistic goal if you give them enough time, and that should put them ahead of Starbucks,” Equity Research founder Mark Kalinowski told Business Insider.
