This morning, a high-ranking Chick-Fil-A employee leaked the news to a small group of bloggers that the restaurant will soon open seven days a week. (Silent scream!) Historically, the famed Southern chicken chain has adamantly refused to open on Sundays, citing a conflict with its Christian values, but widespread customer demand, impending expansion plans, and a still-flagging economy have caused executives to reconsider that policy. “Our customers have been asking for this for a long time, and we just can’t say no any longer,” the source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, explained. The expanded hours will apply to each of the company’s 1,546 locations.
In addition to a special Sunday menu featuring new options like chicken and waffles and a brunch buffet (biscuits after 10:30AM!), each Chick-Fil-A location will offer a nondenominational worship service, as well. “We want to cater to the before, during, and after church crowd,” the source explained. No additional details have been released, and a press spokesperson refused to comment. For more news on this developing story, check back . . . next April Fool’s Day.
