Chick-fil-A: Anti-Gay Marriage Chain Set to Open More Bay Area Restaurants

Chick-fil-A, the fast food chain that San Franciscans reamed last month, has given the gay marriage movement a few more potential Bay Area locations to stage future kiss-ins.

According to media outlets, the Atlanta-based chain bought property in Novato in Marin County this past month with hopes of opening a new restaurant soon, and it has other plans to expand to the East Bay.

Naturally, this news has left a bad taste in the mouths of the LGBT community.

Stuart Gaffney, media director of MarriageEquality USA, told SF Weekly that he wasn't confident the fast-food chain would thrive in this neighborhood.

“I think restaurant customers in Marin County will keep in mind that Chick-fil-A takes their profits and … funnels them into their charitable arms” for organizations that fight equal rights for gay people, he said.
