Chick-fil-A Does It Again!

What about the Chick-fil-A franchisees?

I am dumbfounded at the stupidity of Chick-fil-A’s Dan Cathy commenting “Guilty as charged” when asked about the allegations that the company donated $2 million to anti-gay Christian groups. Anyone who has read this blog knows that I am against mixing your personal views with your business. Chick-fil-A obviously does not care about the people who slog away making money for them in their version of a franchise store. Maybe they are so certain that all of their “partners” share their views and will support them at all costs that the controversy doesn’t matter. The fact is there will be customers who will jump to support them because they too are anti-gay Christians – but likely they are already customers. Then there are those substantial numbers of folks who will stay away because the don’t agree with their politics and/or don’t believe they should be taking a stance on such an issue. From where I sit, either way the partners/franchisees lose. And I say shame on you Chick-fil-A for jeopardizing the revenues of these hard working people.
