Chick-fil-A confirms 'record-setting day' on 'Appreciation Day'
Published August 02, 2012
Chick-fil-A announced Thursday morning that supporters who
flocked to the restaurant for "Appreciation Day" propelled the company
to a "record-setting day." The statement confirmed anecdotal
claims that the long lines seen at Chick-fil-A's across the country
Wednesday fueled unprecedented sales. The turnout came after CEO Dan
Cathy came under fire in some circles for his opposition to same-sex
marriage. "We are very grateful and humbled by the incredible
turnout of loyal Chick-fil-A customers on August 1 at Chick-fil-A
restaurants around the country. We congratulate local Chick-fil-A
Owner/Operators and their team members for striving to serve each and
every customer with genuine hospitality," the company said in a
statement. "While we don't release exact sales numbers, we can confirm
reports that it was a record-setting day." Mike Huckabee, the
former Arkansas governor and Fox News host who initially made the call
for patrons to show up for "Appreciation Day," also said Thursday that
the turnout went beyond "anything I could have imagined." Huckabee
said the call for an "Appreciation Day" was in response to what he
described as "economic bullying" by people trying to put Cathy "out of
business." "It was just getting out of hand," Huckabee said.
The protests against Cathy included local mayors threatening to keep the restaurant out of their city.
But on Wednesday, stores were packed and lines poured into the streets.
gone beyond anything I could have imagined," Huckabee told Fox News.
"Every one of (the stores) that I know have reported record, historic
sales yesterday. ... A lot of the stores ran out of chicken before the
end of the day." Critics of Chick-fil-A argue that the company's
opposition to gay marriage goes well beyond Cathy's statements. Over
the years, its philanthropic wing, WinShape, has donated millions of
dollars to outside organizations that actively lobby against efforts to
legalize same-sex marriage. But Huckabee said when he's doing business with any company, "I'm not buying their politics. I'm buying their product. "
said one demographic, though, wasn't thrilled about Wednesday's
turnout: "Actually I don't think the chickens were too happy about the
day. They really gave their lives in mass numbers."http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/08/02/huckabee-chick-fil-appreciation-day-beyond-anything-could-have-imagined/
