It has been a favorite with millions for years, but that doesn't mean it hasn't had its own business hurdles. Like having to go through lawsuits in order to set up new restaurant locations in airport venues, where there has been public backlash over the proposal. That would be because of the controversial and open religious views of those behind the company.
Regardless if there are millions out there who don't agree with the religious views of the people behind the company, a good product is just that. It speaks for itself and they've got good products that continue to bring people back again and again.
There are about 5k Taco Bell locations in the United States, roughly 24k+ Subway stores, and 2.6k+ Chick-fil-A locations around the country. In many places in the U.S. you still cannot find Chick-Fil-A serving their goods just yet. But still they have managed to climb their way to the top.
Just recently a new survey confirmed that Chick-fil-A is still a favorite with many teens today. They are still a favorite and selling billions of dollars in chicken sandwiches regularly despite possibly having one of the slowest drive thru situations, compared to other fast food chains.
It has been said that there might possibly be no major quick service restaurant in the market today that has a following like Chick-fil-A does. Despite having one of the slowest drive thru operations people say that it is worth waiting for.
