Delicious, juicy chicken and waffles fries are coming to Canda.
That’s the glorious news residents of Toronto received when Chick-fil-A President and COO Tim Tassopoulos announced Wednesday that the chain has chosen to open its first international location in the Candian city in 2019, Fox News reported.
“Toronto is a great city — with diverse and caring people, a vibrant restaurant culture and a deep talent pool,” he wrote in an open letter. “These characteristics align perfectly with Chick-fil-A’s focus on community giving, delivering a premium restaurant experience and working with passionate people who can grow with our company.”
“We’ve spent years researching cities across the world, and the more time we spent here, the more we knew Toronto was the perfect place to roost. It will be our pleasure to serve you in 2019 and the years to come,” he said in closing.
Chick-fil-A has certainly earned a reputation for being a generous, philanthropic company that sells great food with kind and cheerful service.
Nonetheless, this hasn’t appeased leftists who are still enraged over an incident that happened over four years ago, when the company’s CEO Dan Cathy said he opposes same-sex marriage.
Since then, Chick-fil-A has refused to compromise on its biblical values and have consistently shown a heart to serve their community.
Following the 2016 mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, for instance, Chick-fil-a employees worked during their off hours to provide food to those donating blood and to law enforcement officers responding to the horrific event, as reported by Time.
“We love our city and love the people in our community. #prayfororlando ” the restaurant said in a Facebook post.
Despite acts of goodwill like this, LGBTQ activists are still enraged at the news of the new Canadian Chick-fil-A.
Many have demanded a boycott of the restaurant.
“Just a friendly Canadian reminder that we are a progressive country and have morals and fight for equal rights for all. We don’t want your bigoted and discriminatory business opening anywhere north of the border. #BoycottChickFilA” wrote one critic.
“There are many local, Canadian-owned restaurants that make better chicken – and without the homophobia, bigotry and hatred that Chick-Fil-A promotes. Buy Canadian, support Canadian businesses, uphold Canadian rights, freedoms & tolerance! #BoycottChickFilA” another demanded.
“Please, leave your corporate homophobic beliefs at the border. Not welcome here!” said another.
The outrage was balanced, however, with a dose of excited enthusiasm from Chick-fil-a fans.
If New York City is any indication, this new Toronto Chick-fil-A will thrive. When the largest Chick-fil-a in the country opened in New York in May 2016, liberal Mayor Bill de Blasio called for a boycott.
“I’m certainly not going to patronize them and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorkers to patronize them,” de Blasio said in a news conference at the time.
And like clockwork, when the location first opened there were long lines of people waiting to get in.
Now, two years later, four more Chick-fil-As have opened in the city.
And that’s how the story goes: Leftists continue to be utterly intolerant of everything and anyone who doesn’t agree with them, and Chick-fil-A continues to prosper as it volunteers, donates to worthy causes and serves delicious food with a smile.
