Could Chick-fil-A Open On Sundays in Oklahoma?
We all know Chick-fil-A is closed on Sundays, but could that change in Oklahoma??
For some reason, when you're most craving Chick-fil-A, it's always Sunday and then you realize that you can't get your chicken nuggets because Chick-fil-A is closed! But a recent bill in New York could change all that. So we're asking, could that also change in Oklahoma??
According to Fortune, lawmakers in New York recently "introduced a bill that would require restaurants in state highway system rest areas to operate seven days a week." We all know that Sundays are a no-go for Chick-fil-A. And so much so that Chick-fil-A was specifically mentioned in the legislative materials, but the bill would include Chick-fil-A to be open on Sundays.
Why is Chick-fil-A closed on Sundays?
Being closed on Sundays has been the business's practice since its founding. According to the Chick-fil-A website, its restaurants are closed on Sundays so its workers could have time to rest, spend time with family or "worship if they choose."
Why does New York want Chick-fil-A to open on Sundays?
Now in New York, this is being challenged by lawmakers. According to the bill, this would apply to all Chick-fil-A restaurants located in rest stops that are operated by Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. The lawmaker who authored the bill stated that the reasoning for this bill " is meant to give travelers in New York a variety of food options, including healthy foods, at rest stops..."
@snachwithzach Chick-fil-A’s policy of being closed on Sundays is often a topic of much discussion amongst the food community. It has once again become a point of interest in a new New York State draft bill (A08336) which would require any future food and beverage vendors (including the Atlanta-based fast food chain) to operate seven days a week in service plazas operated by the Port Authority of New York/New Jersey. There is a lot of conflicting information regarding this bill, so let’s take a look at it to understand it further. #chickfila#fastfood#foodnews#foodtok#friedchicken#restaurant#travel#chicken#fries#hospitality#fyp ♬ Cafe music, corporate VP, comfortable(1277239) - zukisuzuki
