Tonight the family and I are going to the Lehigh Valley Phantoms hockey game, and since I am so sick of politics at the moment, here’s your feel-good story of the day.
Despite ongoing criticism from activists, fast food chain Chick-fil-A is projected to become the third-largest restaurant chain in the U.S., according to an analysis from Kalinowski Equity Research.
The fast food chicken chain will rise from its seventh-place spot to rank as the third-largest U.S. restaurant chain by 2018’s close.
“We have long pointed out that Chick-fil-A is the restaurant competitor with which McDonald’s … should most concern itself — and by extension, investors should, too,” analyst Mark Kalinowski wrote in his report. “But this goes beyond McDonald’s,” Kalinowski noted.
Kalinowski previously predicted the chain would assume the third-place spot in sales by 2020, but changed his forecast in April to 2019, Business Insider reported.
This shouldn’t be surprising. The Chick-Fil-A location a mile from my home has lines out the door, and the drive-thru is usually at least ten cars long. Leftists can whine all they want, but when people find good food, most don’t care about politics. Chew on that, haters!
