Chick-Fil-A profit margin?
Fried Chicken Contest
Which fried chicken do you prefer?
It would be wonderful if every conflict could end in a “win-win” situation but, unfortunately, that doesn’t happen often. I Google Chick-Fil-A daily to find out the latest scoop from either side of the issue. There seems to be just as much discontent, if not more, after the protest as there was before the protest.
Protesters score 1
Based on blogs I’ve read, protestors are urging their friends, and getting their verbal commitment, to “not” go to Chick-Fil-A. The protesters are quite optimistic and feel they will put a dent in the purse of Dan Cathy. Time will tell. It worked for the Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Chick-Fil-A scores 1
According to broadcast reports, Chick-Fil-A had enjoyed quite a sizable profit margin before the protest. August 1 was their banner day. Now it appears that Chick-Fil-A is back to business as usual. It doesn’t seem that they are affected by the boycotters.
Taste buds have a vote
I have purchased food from Chick-Fil-A seven times or less since I first saw one of the chains. My taste buds are satiated more by chicken from the grocery store delicatessens. Actually, I prefer KFC and Popeye’s but the grocery store will do for the sake of expediency or when money is short. The two times I brought Chick-Fil-A home my husband whined and complained. The first time, a couple of years ago, he said he couldn’t eat it and he didn’t. The second time was two weeks ago and he complained again but ate it anyway. He proceeded to complain as he did the first time. I received coupons in the mail and will probably stop by to use a coupon. Chick-Fil-A will not become a habit.
From comments I’ve read it appears that some people, on both sides of the protest, love Chick-Fil-A. Now how many of those protesters are going to drive to another county so as not to be seen walking into Chick-Fil-A?
Well tomorrow I will again Google Chick-Fil-A as I do George Zimmerman on a daily basis.
