chick fil a locations - Google Maps

"Exurban" might have been a better term. Where the country meets the suburbs in the South and to a lesser extent the lower Midwest - you'll find a Chick-fil-a. And where rural people shop at these exurban malls, there are Chick-fil-as.

Maybe you are not familiar with the real rural South. They don't come to Charlotte to shop.

Uh. You can't buy everything at a reasonable quality at Wal-Mart. Unless something has drastically changed since 10 years ago when I worked on a farm in eastern NC (and that's possible given the internet), there are certainly regular trips to the nearest town (think Monroe, Wilson, Shelby which in the South often includes a Chick-fil-a) and less frequent but still regular trips to the nearest "big city" mall (Wilmington, Asheville, Fayetteville, Winston, Gboro, High Point, Raleigh, Durham, Greenville). Have you ever been to Concord Mills on a Saturday? Or Hanes Mall with all the folks coming "down the mountain" to shop? Ever counted the number of SC plates at Carolina Place?

Regardless, Chick fil a has a stronghold in the smaller cities in the south as well, so there would be regular reaction with rural people. Though, most of the rural people moved to the exurbs (or the exurbs moved to them) in the last 40 years.
