Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day in Lubbock

Allen Corbin,

Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day wasn’t lost on the people of Lubbock with hundreds of people swarming the 69th and Slide location of the locally owned and operated chain restaurant.

Lubbock’s First News show host Chad Hasty, producer Ariel Walden and I went today to Chick-Fil-A and by the end of our stay for lunch a few hundred people were inside ordering or in the drive-thru line.

Chick-Fil-A Appreciation Day was not created by the restaurant. In a statement, Steve Robinson, Executive Vice President Marketing said,

“Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day was not created by Chick-fil-A. We appreciate all of our customers and are glad to serve them at any time. Our goal is simple: to provide great food, genuine hospitality and to have a positive influence on all who come into contact with Chick-fil-A.”


Some protesters did show up and to them I give them praise as well. The winner today won’t be Chick-Fil-A or the protesters or patrons of the store: The First Amendment was the winner today.

Regardless of your stance on gay marriage or Chick-Fil-A everyone wasn’t denied their right to freely exercise one of most basic rights protected by the Bill of Rights.

We had protesters and those freely going to buy a chicken sandwich with extra pickles and diet lemonade without reprisal from the mob that could be offended by a business run by Christians and operating on Christian principles.
