When you think of Chick fil-A, you think of a good chicken sandwich and great customer service. But if you're a writer for the New Yorker magazine, somehow it’s a creepy outfit with a devious agenda. Daniel Piepenbring's article is entitled "Chick fil-A's creepy infiltration into New York City." The article goes on to say "…the brand’s arrival here feels like an infiltration, in no small part because of its pervasive Christian traditionalism. Its headquarters, in Atlanta, are adorned with Bible verses and a statue of Jesus washing a disciple’s feet. Its stores close on Sundays…. and the …corporate purpose still begins with the words “to glorify God.” Contrary to the insinuation by the New Yorker columnist, maybe Christian ideals aren't bad things, especially if they result in excellence.
