Bill de Blasio, eat your heart out. Once renovations are done in Plainfield, Indiana, of course.
That’s where the franchise owners of a Chick-fil-A — the most hated restaurant of the New York City mayor, along with pretty much everyone else on the left — are paying its workers to do community service while the outlet is undergoing some remodeling.
“The restaurant on E. Main St. is tentatively scheduled to close the last week of September, with the grand reopening projected for November,” WXIN-TV reported earlier this week.
“During construction, Owner Chris Spires says his team members will be deployed throughout the area, serving with non-profit organizations including schools, parks and recreation, and Active Grace, a center that helps the homeless transition back to work.”
The renovations, according to WXIN, will have two lanes for drive-through ordering which will merge into a single lane for payment and pickup of delicious, delicious chicken sandwiches. I swear this isn’t paid content, I’m just that addicted to the stuff.
“For the past 14 years, I have served the Plainfield community side by side with some amazing Team Members,” Spires told WXIN.
“The support of our amazing community is the reason we are able to expand and renovate our restaurant. We are thrilled to spend some time while we are closed supporting organizations that make Plainfield and the surrounding areas such a wonderful place to live and do business.”
He’s also asking the community for other suggestions as to community service organizations that he can help out during the remodeling.
Of course, Chick-fil-A is an organization founded on Christian values, which is why every restaurant is closed on Sunday.
The fact they also feel that the Bible is the word of God also has liberals portraying them as evil.
So, when they moved into tolerant New York City a few years back, Mayor Bill de Blasio said, “I’m certainly not going to patronize them, and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them.”
The New Yorker also ran an article called “Chick-fil-A’s Creepy Infiltration of New York City,” because apparently corporations which still have some connection to Christianity are now creepy.
Well, what passes as creepy in New York City is what the rest of America calls downright neighborly.
And, in fairness, from what I’ve heard from friends in the city I used to call home, Gothamites are ignoring the proscription against the restaurant and going for deliciousness.
However, if you ever needed an object lesson in the difference between Main St. and (the home of) Wall St., there you go.
Our hats are off to you, Mr. Spires. Next time I’m in the neighborhood, I’ll definitely be dropping by your branch. I mean, let’s face it, I’d be doing it anyway, but now I can actually feel that much better about it.
