Chick-fil-A customers trying to find their fix over Christmas weekend this year will be disappointed.
The chicken chain is to be closed on Christmas, which falls on a Saturday. Traditionally, Chick-fil-A is closed on Christmas because the holiday falls the same day . It means the restaurant’s roughly 2,600 branches in United States locations are closed for 2 days in a row. It’ll again open on Monday, December 27.
Chick-fil-A closes its restaurants on Sundays because of its religious Christian ownership. Its owner’s beliefs have drawn controversy in the past. For example, CEO Dan Cathy said in 2012 that the company supports “the biblical definition of the nuclear family.”
In a 2018 interview with a local Atlanta TV station, Cathy reiterated his position on same-sex marriage but said he is not anti-gay. the company has since tried to distance itself from its less-than-supportive stance toward the LGBTQ+ community.
In 2019, Chick-fil-A made major changes to its charitable foundation, ending donations to 2 organizations that are criticized for being anti-LGBTQ+ — the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. both organizations have taken controversial stands on homosexualism and same-sex marriage.
In a blog post from last year, Chick-fil-A said the chain’s restaurants are going to be open on January 1 Eve and Day — including this year because they are on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
