Chick-fil-A at Top of New Poll as America’s Favorite Fast Food Restaurant: Winning
Chick-fil-A has rocked the annual nationwide poll as America’s favorite fast food restaurant, surpassing In-N-Out Burger and confusing anti-Christian protesters as people flock to get some Chik.. Market Force, a customer satisfaction company, released its annual look at “America’s favorite” fast food chains this week, polling consumers about their favorite fast foods. Even though they’re closed on Sunday – they won.
Chick-fil-A — whose founder, Truett Cathy, infused the company with Christian values — continues to be the target of attacks by politicians and activists on the left, even though the company’s commercials and other promotional material including billboards make no reference to those values.
Buffalo Niagara International Airport recently banned the restaurant as a food vendor after New York Democrat Assemblyman Sean Ryan criticized the restaurant chain for supporting anti-LGBTQ organizations.
Earlier this year, the San Antonio City Council in Texas rejected the opening of a Chick-fil-A franchise inside the San Antonio International Airport.
Chick-fil-A received the highest overall score across all categories of restaurants, with a 79 percent “loyalty rating,” placing it above In-N-Out, which was No. 1 last year. Chipotle was No. 1 among Mexican chains, while Jersey Mike’s topped the list of sandwich shops.
This year, Chick-fil-A became the third-largest fast-food chain in the U.S., ranking only behind McDonald’s and Starbucks in sales. The company’s sales growth is exceptional considering that the chain is closed on Sundays for religious reasons.
It has been confirmed that President Trump has invited Nick Sandman and the Covington #MAGAkids to the White House in response to the media catastrophe this week!
We here at JoeForAmerica, (actually it was my good friend Melissa’s idea), were pondering what would happen if the President served the boys Chick-fil-A?
For those out of the loop, students from Covington High School were targeted by an angry online mob over the weekend, who falsely blamed them for instigating conflict with a Native American activist on the National Mall in Washington, DC, following the March for Life.
The media responses to the boys going to the White House has already been sadly predictable:
CNN framed the concept earlier Tuesday morning as, “President Donald Trump is publicly siding with the mostly white students of a Kentucky high school who were engaged in a confrontation with a Native American elder that renewed a sensitive national debate about race relations in America.”
As well, many are complaining the Native American ‘Veteran’ who actually never served in war, just during the time frame of one, that started this mess should get to go.
The Black Hebrew Israelites (BHI) members shouted profanities at the boys, calling them names such as “cracker,” “faggot,” and “pedophile,” and singled out a black student for abuse, saying he was a “n*gger” who was going to be murdered and have his organs harvested by the white kids.
The liberals have already made it clear think the BHI should get an invite too!
So we here at Joe think President Trump should feed the #MAGAkids Chick-Fil-A!
You will remember last week that the President served a fast food meal in the State Dining Room for the Clemson Tigers and liberals called it racist and classist. He personally paid for the event, catered by some of America’s great fast food joints. He blamed the shutdown.
Heads exploded over a little fast food. They hate Chick-fil-A! They might make a mass immigration to Venezuela!
President Trump welcomed the Tigers, national college football champions, to the White House on January 14. He served them burgers, pizza, and fries from some of America’s most storied institutions: fast-food chains.
The resulting buffet, which included hamburgers, fries, salads, and fish sandwiches from McDonald’s, Burger King, and Wendy’s alongside Domino’s pizza, was a strange choice, particularly for an event held in the 140-seat State Dining Room, which traditionally hosts formal dinners for ambassadors and heads of state.
Picture it! Sicily! Chick-Fil-A!
I can only imagine the response! The crowd will go wild!
Details are scarce at the moment, but Laura Ingraham announced the #MAGAkids meeting Tuesday afternoon on Twitter. She added that the meeting could occur as soon as Wednesday. She issued a follow-up that a date was more uncertain. The meeting might not happen until the current government shutdown dispute is resolved.

Ingraham tweeted about an hour later that the White House “seems to be in flux” regarding a meeting with Covington #MAGAkids. They were already in Washington, D.C., on Friday for the March for Life.
“Announced any meeting would happen after shutdown,” Ingraham wrote on Twitter. “Odd as it would be less meaningful if delayed.”
Most likely, it will happen!
So let’s get the White House to serve Chick-Fil-A! Retweet, Retweet, and Never Retreat!

A campaign to raise the wage for fast-food workers to $15 an hour is tying its fight to historical fights for civil rights as protesters plan to rally in Detroit and other cities nationwide on Monday.
The protests come exactly 50 years after the Memphis sanitation strike.
Employees at fast food restaurants across the country plan to walk off their jobs. They will begin protesting for a $15-an-hour salary, the Detroit Free Press reports.
The fast food employees will be joined by thousands of other workers protesting in two dozen cities across the nation who will show support for the strikers and the new Poor People’s Campaign.
A press conference and rally will be held at Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park on the corner of West Grand Boulevard and Rosa Parks Boulevard at 12:15 p.m., followed by a march and protest at a local McDonald’s.
Detroit City Council President Pro Tem Mary Sheffield will be joining with the Fight for $15 fast food workers, hospital workers, Service Employees International Union Local 1, faith and community allies, according to a news release.
“We’re going to send a message to corporations and politicians that their time of rigging the economy against workers is over,” the Rev. W.J. Rideout, one of the local protest organizers, told the Free Press. “We have to stand up and fight back.”
But just how well does a manipulated rise in wages to $15 and hour work out?
When Seattle officials voted three years ago to incrementally boost the city’s minimum wage up to $15 an hour, they’d hoped to improve the lives of low-income workers. Yet the hike has had the opposite effect.
According to a major new study, some employers have not been able to afford the increased minimums. They’ve cut their payrolls and put off new hiring. They are reducing hours or letting their workers go.
California’s massive state-wide jump to a $15 minimum wage is looking to cost around 400,000 potential jobs. This is according to a new Employment Policy Institute study.
“California Dreamin’ of Higher Wages,” strives to evaluate what the state’s jump to a $15 minimum wage will mean when it fully kicks in in 2022 by attempting to contextualize it with the empirical effects of previous minimum wage increases in the state going back to 1990.
The results are pretty dire. They believe that by the time the minimum wage fully kicks in the state will have lost 400,000 jobs as a consequence. These job losses will not be evenly distributed throughout the state’s workforce. They will hit food service, retail, and agriculture jobs the hardest. Overall, this a four percent loss of jobs out of workforce estimated at around 10 million.
The state of New York embarked on an unprecedented experiment in raising the minimum wage. At the start of 2016, the city’s tipped minimum wage increased by 50 percent. The minimum wage for fast food workers jumped by nearly 17 percent to $10.50. At the start of 2017, the wage floor rose higher to $12 an hour,. The minimum wage for all businesses in the city rose by 22 percent to $11 an hour.
Now NYC is full of empty store fronts.
Exhaustive research over the past few decades suggests raising the minimum wage has little negative impact on overall employment.
Problem is, most past wage hikes have been relatively modest. There’s no data to confidently predict what might happen following the kinds of increases now planned in California and New York.
Because teenagers and young adults hold a disproportionately large share of low-wage jobs, they figure to be among the hardest hit. They will be pushed out by older and better-educated workers who will be drawn by the higher pay offered by retail stores, food services and other businesses.
That could hurt opportunities, especially for black teenagers, one of the most vulnerable groups in America.
Even Harry Holzer, the Labor Department’s top economist in the Clinton administration’s second term, fears there will be heavy job losses. He claims the $15 wage will effect the most the low-skilled, less-educated workers. They may even have to accept cash under the table or cut deals to keep their jobs.
He thought $15 was more of a bargaining ploy to get to $10 an hour, or maybe $12.
So just when are these people going to learn? It really is simple. Low wage jobs are jumping off points to learn. As you grow, get another job that makes more money. Leave the spot for another entry level person. You continue to grow, learn, and earn more.
Who wants to stay in fast food as a career? Silly kids!
