There’s been plenty of controversy about airports approving restaurant locations serving chicken sandwiches. Unless you’ve been avoiding social media for the last week, you know that there’s a new entrant in that market and it could make airport concession companies think twice about which franchise they want to open.
Up until now, if you were going to open a chicken sandwich franchise, Chick-fil-A was the only game in town. While the restaurant chain has a share of loyalists who are addicted to their sandwiches and sweet tea, there’s also a number of people who refuse to patronize the company due to the social and cultural views of its CEO and other executives. That’s not even to mention what you should do if you’d want a chicken sandwich on a Sunday.
If you think about it, this was the only type of food where there was no other available mainstream option.

As we’ve mentioned several times in the past, Joe and I are staunch supporters of the LGBTQ+ community. From donating to LGBTQ+ causes to working at and walking in Pride parades to supporting our friends at Gay Days at WDW, we’ve been there for our lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender friends. Another case in point, Joe and I have not eaten at Chick-fil-A (CFA) in a dozen or more years because of their continuous corporate donations to organizations that are historically anti-LGBTQ+.
That being said, I frequently keep up to date on what the company is doing, in case they change on their social stance. Frankly, I used to ADORE their chicken nuggets and would love to go back to CFA if they had a social change of heart and took the money I spent on their food and gave it to organizations that helped my friends in the LGBTQ+ community, instead of ones that hurt them. So I’ve been watching the whole “CFA at airports” stories that are going on and particularly liked Matthew’s take on it, on Live and Let’s Fly. All I have to say is, if you’re gonna do it, San Antonio, at least do it right. Sheesh.
But then I saw Gary’s post on View From The Wing about what San Jose Airport’s (SJC) plan is, and I really question if that’s the best idea, either? Here’s why…
