Chick-fil-A New York City

Chick-fil-A’s arrival in New York City feels like an infiltration

See the world. New Yorkers found that their city had four Chick-fil-A restaurants – including the world’s largest restaurant.

An article published in the New Yorker magazine last week was titled “Chick-fil-A” New York City’s creepy infiltration.”

The author is Dan Piepenbring and is described as coming from Brooklyn.

“The air smells good,” he reported on his arrival at the Fulton Street chain.

Then he reviewed a situation in Manhattan where a sandwich could be sold every six seconds, and reported that the company plans to open “as many as a dozen stores” in the city.

Then he discusses what he describes as “universal Christian traditionism.”

Piepenbring mentioned that Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy was accused of anti-homosexual prejudice, and Atlanta’s headquarters was “adorned with Bible verses and the statue of Jesus to wash the disciples’ feet.”

He then criticized the company’s “Eat Mor Chickin” promotion, calling it “one of the most popular and morbid advertising campaigns in the history of fast food.”

Some Twitter users are not impressed by this article.

“A Twitter user wrote:” When New Yorkers start secretly tasting their delicious food, it will be fun… Will they be fired?

“This is bigotry,” another commented. “The New Yorker would never use the word “infiltration” to describe newcomers of any other religion.”

“The New Yorker sneering at the Chick-fil-A cows is why Trump won,” a third Twitter user wrote.

Regardless of what the New Yorker and its staff might think, it seems that Americans have already rendered their verdict on the restaurant chain.

Earlier this month, Fox News reported that Chick-fil-A is on pace to become the nation’s third largest fast food chain by 2020.
