Area Chick-fil-A locations were busy at lunch time as customers showed up en masse to show support for the Christian-led company's stance on gay marriage.
People voted with their wallets Wednesday at Chick-fil-A locations across the country, coming out to express support for the fast-food chain after CEO Dan Cathy recently said in an interview that he is a firm backer of “traditional marriage.” Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee organized the Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day to show support for the company.
Wait time was about 40 minutes about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday at Chick-fil-A off Airport-Pulling Road in North Naples. The other Naples location at Coastland Center also was busier than normal. The Estero location of Chick-fil-A reports that Wednesday was the busiest day for the local restaurant since opening three years ago.
