Chick-Fil-A coming to Toronto.
How will it do?
Will there be mass protest?
Have you been to one and did you like it or hate it?

Tried it in the USA.
It was nothing special in my opinion.
I don't see why there would be a protest.

Over-rated Jesus chicken.


That being said, they treat their employees incredibly well.

It appears that nobody here knows Canadian business and corporate law.

Chick-Fil-A in Canada may be owned by its US parent, but it will not be directed by the US parent. Direction must be done by a majority of Canadians on the Canadian corporate board. The same applies to McDonald's Canada Inc., Burger King Canada Inc., and Walmart Canada Inc. Just examples, but they are all examples of American corporations operating in Canada, under Canadian business law.

It seems to me that the success of Chick-Fil-A in Canada must rely on its food. Because in Canada, to the average consumer, religion matters far less than a chicken dinner. Putting Bible verses on takeout carriers will never matter. Religion means next to nothing in Canada.

I am guessing the OP was referring to the owner of this franchise publicly opposing gay marriage a few years ago, which triggered protests in the states. But regardless, the chicken doesn’t taste any different from all other fast food places, so I doubt it would be a success here

I met many religious people in Canada (Jews, Catholics, Muslims). Don't let your progressive views cloud your judgement.

It really is time to move. Last I check Chick Fil Lay is not checking your sexual orientation before you order. Furthermore the CEO has a right to be a believer in Jesus Christ. Bottom line a good product and good service will always win.

Rather sad so many Americans, praise this restaurant. Personally I have no idea, what anyone sees in Chick fil A. I've only tried it s few times. It is nothing special by no means. Its a chicken sandwich. The chain is way overpriced, and at least in the South. Religion is part of the vibe of Chick fill A. At least here in Florida, and other southern states. The clientele says it all.

Frankly I'm surprised opening up in Canada is coming. Perhaps initially Chick fill a will be a novelty. Long term I can't see love for the chain in Canada. Maybe Chick fill A Canada, will follow Target Canada, and not be successful up there. That does happen with businesses crossing the border on both sides. I noticed the Canadian Donut company Horton didn't make it in the US.
