Despite the left's hatred for Chick-fil-A, they cannot bring down the Lord's chicken!
Starting in 2012, the left has continuously attacked the fast-food chain for their Conservative, Christian values. This is when the LGBT boycotts of the company began, but it appears to have backfire since their sales have only doubled! Not to mention, the company is closed on Sundays!
Christian Headlines reports, “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."
They continued, “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.”
Democratic "Activists" have been actively boycotting Chick-fil-a since 2012,
And their protest has really accomplished a lot...
Chick-fil-a sales have DOUBLED since the boycott started.

But wait, there's more! In addition to higher sales, Chick-fil-A also added 700 new locations during the last seven years!
Journal & Courier noted that in 2018 alone, Chick-fil-A saw a sales increase more than four times that of Starbucks at 16.7%.
There are more than 2,400 Chick-fil-A locations nationwide, compared to more than 14,000 Starbucks’ and McDonald’s locations each.
Despite having a substantially less amount of locations than Starbucks, Kalinowski Equity Research founder Mark Kalinowski told Business Insider that he believes Chick-fil-A will surpass Starbucks in sales!
“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,” he said.
Quick Thought on the Chick-Fil-A "Boycott"
Keep in mind that the boycott is happening because Chick-Fil-A supports "Anti-LGBT" organizations. What are these terrible, bigoted, NAZI, hate-filled organizations?

Focus on the Family director Glenn T. Stanton added that the left has "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 their amazing food, I believe the attitude and morals of the company and employees is part of what makes the restaurant's atmosphere so enjoyable!
Despite the numbers though, if you ask a liberal, they likely believe their little boycotts are actually doing something.
