Chick-fil-A’s Stated Corporate Purpose:

“To glorify God by being a faithful steward of all that is entrusted to us and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A.”

And, evidently, it is working.
 
Indeed, working very well.
 
Along with the Golden Rule they understand very well the organizing principle of the free market ... that for voluntary exchanges to occur they must be mutually beneficial. 
 
For Chick-fil-a this extends not only to the clientele, but also to employees, vendors, landowners, etc. 
 
I've never heard a bad word about them.

Unless you are gay. then they are not so positive.

Listen more carefully. A quick Google search will show you complaints.

This was just the fist one on the list. When we got our own Chic Fil a, that's what so many people wee talking about! Sometimes their ultra conservative religion affects corporate decisions. That said, I love their food,but I know people who would not go in the door.

Evidently Chick-fil-a treats its gay employees both fairly and well.
 
When LGBTQ "activists" tried to boycott the business in 2012 because one of the owners made a contribution to an organization that opposed gay marriage (but not civil unions), it back-fired.  Chick-fil-a's business boomed.  Here in Texas they had to hire off-duty police officers for traffic control!
 
Since, Chick-fil-a has set revenue records in Manhattan and recently opened "the world's largest Chick-fil-a" in the financial district.
 
EDIT: I thought I was being au courant by adding the 'Q' to LGBT.  From a talk show yesterday I learned that now, properly, we have to add 'IA' to the 'Q'.  Oh my, how truly sorry I am.
 
And now I am told that I must add 'cisgender privilege' to the terrible burden of guilt that I must bear from my 'white privilege'.  Oh, woe is me.

I happen to be conservative. While I know there are tons of businesses out there owned by liberals who make donations to liberal causes, the last thing I'd want to do is have to check the political leanings of every business before I decide whether to give them my business.
 
Is that really where we want to go?
 
The only time I care about a business owner's political leanings to the point where I think about boycotting is when he or she makes a public crusade of their politics. Making private donations or responding honestly to questions during an interview (the latter is what I recall setting off a lot of people against Chick Fil-A .... their owner responded to an interviewer's question about gay marriage) doesn't rise to that level.
 
However, I will say that I'm more likely to go out of my way to give business to a place, like Chick Fil-A, that I feel is being unfairly targeted by the opposition.

If the food's good, seems like Jesus would like everyone to have chicken sandwiches. We don't have one so I can't boycott them.
I wonder if God has any say in new Popeyes locations because I'd put some money in the donation plate if she'd include Southern Oregon in any expansion.

The OP didn't request feedback. It was more of a statement. I think they will be OK.

I would hope that all the virtue-signaling business people would follow the wisdom of Michael Jordan who observes that "Republicans buy shoes, too!".
 
For the sake of their stockholders, Facebook, Amazon, Google, and YouTube had better take that to heart or they will suffer the fate of CNN.

What happened to CNN? I don't have cable. Did you citizens arrest them like Gomer? The way things are going, you could be in the running for Secretary of State soon. I know you have your resume in.

You mean they'd be on every TV in every airport and hotel in the world? Yeah, that's a fate to be afraid of.

In the spirit of egalitarianism I'll muster up all my white, Christian, male cisgender privilege to see if we can get southern Oregon both Chick-fil-a and Popeye's.  In this land of plenty there is no excuse for your region's deprivation. 
 
I checked, you guys don't even have a Five Guys.  We'll get that done, too.
 
As for being SecState, I respectfully decline.  Too many airport TV's involved.
 
Just curious: are you a native Oregonian or did you emigrate from California?

I'm from Kansas, dude. And Texan by heritage. That's why it is easy Peary to laugh at your Texas white shoes boosterism, but I wear my
Jayhawks on my sleeve. We are getting a 5 guys and a Cracker Barrel
but I'm all in on getting a Waffle House. No luck so far. I think there's a Chik-FIL-a or 2 in Portland, but Chicken and Oregon aren't exactly synonymous. People suggest Albertsons as the best so you can see we are Chicken disadvantaged.

In a world that most peoples integrity could be sold to the highest bidder it's nice to see values win. The first time I went to a Chick-Fil-A was at the airport in Colorado. My next time through the airport I asked what happened to the restaurant it wasn't in the same location. I was told the airport told them they had to open on Sundays and needed to have a food service available 24/7's. Chick-fil-A packed up and left. As we all know they don't open on Sundays. How many other restaurant chains do we know would stick to their values like they do. All the ones I know would cave in to the all mighty buck.......

I admire their business model and their success; while staying true to their purpose AND closing on Sundays to boot.   I couldn't care any less than some don't agree with their stated purpose.   If you don't agree with them, don't go there...just means a shorter wait for me and my family.
 
Aside from the purpose, I have never experienced poor service or surly employees at a Chick-Fil-A...always a smile and nothing but a positive attitude...you never see workers standing around, either.  The same can't be said of most other fast food joints.   And the Chick-Fil-A food is always hot and fresh...best fast chicken sandwich out there.
 
I prefer a great local place when traveling, but sometimes you just have to refill the tank with available options, and Chick-Fil-A is a better choice than other chain joints along the highway.
 
All of this being said, if you haven't tried the chicken tenders at Raising Cane's, you are missing out.

An answer:  I assume he is speaking about Dan Cathy, the owner & founder.

A question:   What does that mean / refer to?

If you had said Barney or Otis or Goober or even Floyd, I'd have gotten it.
 
As for YouTube, I  it!

In any case - whether from a religious motivation or just a desire to build an enduring, profitable business - taking care that every transaction you make is seen by all parties as a "win/win" is just plain good business.  Exploiters and shysters never endure.

Actually, I was referring to S. Truett Cathy, who was the founder of Chick- fil- A.  He was a very generous person and a great humanitarian.  I  lived 13 miles away from where he had homes  in Florida.  He would invite  veterans and their families to vacation there for two week periods.  He also invited deserving poor families to do the same.

We have a Chick-Fil-A coming soon about 10 minutes from my house in a very liberal suburb.  I personally hate religion and people who try to shove it down other's throats.  But I also think that if someone wants to believe in something, it's their right to do so.  People have to remember certain things are business decisions.  Texas Roadhouse has decided to not accommodate anyone (or their immediate families) that have peanut allergies.  They could easily go nut free which could make even more money for them, but they choose not to. 
 
I mainly go to Chick-Fil-A for the chicken biscuits - my favorite fast food breakfast sandwich anywhere.  If they were on the menu all day I'd probably go even more.

Well, the Chicken Gods certainly work in mysterious ways. No sooner did I lament their absence from Southern Oregon than an an announcement came down from HQ indicating permits have been taken out for our 1st one.
Cool!
