Come on Livermore, build that Chick. Hopefully that will help alleviate some of the traffic problems that the Chick in Pleasanton causes.

Hey Bob Carling, so what exactly are CFA’s crimes against the gay community? Is it that CFA hasn’t kowtowed to them like other woke businesses have? I will go out of my way to patronize this new CFA in your place once it opens.

Bob - no crimes. But the corporation did, and has since stopped, donating to charities and organizations that fought lgbtq rights, additionally the ceo has stated her beliefs that gay marriage goes against gods definition of marriage.

These are not crimes by any means, and to be fair the company has stopped donating to these groups. People still associate the CEO’s beliefs with the company.

Personally, I think chik filet is a better organization than most - they pay well, train well, have a strong work ethic, and people love the product. They’ve also changed donation behavior based on community feedback- isn’t that what we want?
