Bill de Blasio Demanded a Ban on Chick-Fil-A, But They Have the Last Laugh

on

Last year, Mayor Bill de Blasio joined with other triggered snowflakes and said he was going to ban Chick-Fil-A.  Fast forward to 2017, and their response is amazing.

In the past, the restaurant has not shied away from its Christian roots.  Back in 2016, the restaurant did not hide their opposition to gay marriage based upon these beliefs.  CEO Dan T. Cathy said the restaurant supported “the biblical definition of the family unit”.  It sparked a national outcry, boycotts, and even verbal abuse directed at the staff.

Remember this video?

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio joined in with the protestors.  He called for a boycott of the restaurant.

De Blasio Said:

What the ownership of Chick-fil-A has said is wrong.  I’m certainly not going to patronize them, and I wouldn’t urge any other New Yorker to patronize them…

Other New Yorkers chimed in and supported the boycott.

Now, Chick-Fil-A is getting the last laugh.

This week, the fast food restaurant announced that they will be opening a massive, five-story restaurant in Manhattan.  It is the largest Chick-Fil-A property ever.  The property is located right next to the 9/11 Memorial and Freedom Tower.  It will open to the public in 2018.

From Nathaniel Cates, the design manager of the restaurant:

The Fulton Street metro station is right next door to the restaurant.  That means our guests will always have the same views of Freedom Tower.

The building offers stunning panoramas of downtown New York and gives a subtle homage to the Twin Towers.

From the New York Post:

Included among those innovations are large floor-to-ceiling windows on both the front and back of the restaurant, as well as a skylight, to bring in more natural light. There will also be a “monumental” staircase connecting the first four levels — two of which will be dedicated to food prep, the rest to seating — intended to draw guests to the dining areas on the upper floors.

The company also says it’s incorporated specific design elements into the restaurant’s façade in order to give passersby “a subtle impression of the Twin Towers” to “acknowledge the significance of location.”

I wonder how cop-hater Bill de Blasio feels now?

Props to Chick-Fil-A.  Living well is certainly the best revenge.
